You may not know this about me, but I love to garden. I love to garden as much as I love photography (and that’s alot).
There’s something incredibly satisfying about being so connected to what you eat. Someday, I want to have a full blown mini-farm and produce most of the food my family consumes. In the meantime, I’ve managed to grow decent quantities of food for my husband and I in the small spaces available to apartment-dwellers like us. These last two years, I’ve been incredibly lucky because our landlord is also an avid gardener, and kindly gave me two of his garden beds as well as a strip along the edge of the house.
Here’s what we’ve got growing:
Butternut squash, Marina de Chioggia squash, strawberries, cucumber, zucchini, about 8 different tomato varieties, green beans, purple beans, wax beans, peas, this beautiful striped eggplant, potatoes, artichokes, peppers, broccoli, lettuce, chard, ground cherry, and carrots.
Do any of you have gardens? What’s your favorite thing to grow?
