We have a small garden on the side of our house. Not a very big space, but enough to grow half a dozen tomato plants and a few pepper plants each summer. Once in a while we throw something additional in there. This year, there are also pea pods climbing up some fencing on the edge of the garden. The boys planted some carrots, which for some reason didn't seem to grow. We always have some sunflowers outlining the garden. And this year we also added some lettuce and spinach. I LOVE spinach. I think this is the first year we've done spinach...or if we've grown it before it's been a long time.
Anyway, it has been so nice to go out and pick a few leaves to throw in a salad or place on a sandwich in place of lettuce. We didn't get a whole lot, just two plants about this size, but that's been just enough.
What are you growing in your garden this year?
