Yard Food: Todays garden harvest

on July 7, 2014

We started our first garden this year turning our back yard into a raised garden bed area. You can read about that here. We planted lemon cucumbers, tomatoes, baby watermelon, pumpkins, squash, broccoli, broccolini, red and yellow potatoes, banana peppers, green bell peppers, 4 variety of lettuce, beets, raspberries and strawberries.

My girls are eating the strawberries as they ripen before I can snap a pic and the wild rabbits seem to be nibbling the lettuce. We have enjoyed many salads already and the girls eat the broccolini right out of the garden. Today was our first potato and tomato harvest! So fun!! This was the best decision to change our back yard wasted space into our family garden project ❤ We’re already planning on what we’ll add next year!!

Our potatoes!

Maybe a fall crop and if you get rain during other seasons use a rain barrel or two to catch water for the days it doesn’t rain? (Just a thought). I’ve seen some cute ideas online and pinterest for beautiful smaller container gardens too 🙂 An small inside herb garden would be awesome!
