A Little Bit Of Gardening

Even though we are helping our friends with their big garden again this year, I still wanted a few things to pick right outside my own door. I've had basil growing for a while now as well as lettuce in pots. Today I planted some pots of dill and chives as well as some cherry tomatoes and beans in the front flowerbed. We'll see how they grow here! I needed to plant in an area that would be pretty much dog-proof and this was it. I also have some yellow peppers to plant yet.

I wanted my own fresh dill to use for more homemade pickles this year!

The little ones also did some gardening of their own!

What have you planted this year? Or depending on where you're from, what do you plan to grow?

Thanks for the sweet post you left for Courtney on my site this morning...she has been trying so hard- it's one of those "I've finally done it" moments. Sort of like when your child first learns to ride a bike.

I'm so glad to see your healthy basil plant...I'm trying again this year. For some reason, it never grows for me. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. We tucked seeds here and there around our tomatoes this morning.

We are growing anywhere and everywhere we can. I've prayed that the Lord would show me where I could plant more...most things are doing O.K.

I would love to know more about the pickles that you are planning. This will be our first year for those.
