how does your garden grow?

i am trying a major experiment this year: gardening. i have managed to keep 4 house plants alive in the last year, so why not jump to a vegetable garden, right?

a handful of local friends have encouraged me with their swanky gardens and dinners of “fresh from the garden” produce. and so, here is my tiny attempt.

i went overboard with tomatoes, because really guys, you just can’t have enough tomatoes.  6 tomato plants, all of different varieties – grape, cherry, purple, zebra. and so far they are all fairing well.

there are heirloom radishes popping up – a gift from my friend dee that i am so very excited to harvest.  red, white, and who knows what else is in the mix.

golden beans and royal purple beans are just now sprouting. there is a mesculen mix, arugula, kale, hot hot peppers, and a couple herbs: nutmeg thyme, tangerine sage, and basil.

this weekend i used the nutmeg thyme to make a white bean hummus on toasted crostini with roasted garlic, lemon and olive oil. looking forward to more inspiration from this tiny raised bed throughout the season!
