Magical Garden

OMG Gardens are great!  It always amazes me that you start with a tiny seed and end up with a HUGE bounty. I went a few weeks ago with my sister to our plots at our local community garden.  Sadly I hadn't been there for awhile. It is such a beautiful place in the middle of the city and I'm always inspired by the other plots.  Boy was I excited by what I saw.... amazing chard, lettuce, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, and broccoli.  I harvested a bit of it but can't wait to have more of the  amazing fresh veggies.

Broccoli and Cauliflower plants

Chard

Lettuce

Look at that amazing color


Love this speckled lettuce




Sweet Potatoes










Boy was I going to have some good food when I got home.  While there we planted some seeds for sugar snap peas, radishes, carrots, beets, chard, lettuce and kale.  I can't wait for those to grow.  What are your favorite veggies and herbs to plant in the garden?

  1. Wow! This garden is magical and totally off the chain! I know this is an older post, but the garden looks amazing. I used the mint you gave me in a yummy strawberry mint smoothie, plus used some more for tea and it's always nice to just pop it in your mouth and eat it. So refreshing. :)
