I have never been much of a gardener. The only things I've ever grown are strawberries and tomatoes. And even then, the strawberries are the only thing that really worked. However, I'm hoping to turn over a new leaf because my amazing landlord, Joanne - also my neighbor, friend, and best friend's sister - is in the beginning stages of starting a pretty cool vegetable garden!
Here it was after being cleared and prepped...
I can take absolutely no credit for all the hard work it took to prepare the soil - it was all Joanne!
But within the next day or so, the raised beds were installed!
I'm hoping to grow carrots and kale (since I juice those) but we'll also have tomatoes, chives, eggplant, and all sorts of other fresh and organic vegetables! I need to do some research and have already started a new gardening Pinterest board and have a lot of learning to do. If any of you out there are gardening afficionados, any words of wisdom?
