Today I really want to inspire you to do what you can to make yourself a garden of any size this spring and summer. Be it a window box of herbs or a small corner of yard with as much as you can grow. The trick is to water!!!!! I cannot tell you how awesome it is to have food everyday that we grow. Yesterday we harvested, swiss chard, a mix of lettuces, scallions, chinese celery, parsley, basil and rosemary as well as bananas, lemons and oranges. Early in the week I made 8 jars of banana lemon jam and last night I made 1 banana cheesecake, 1 tray of banana cheesecake bars, 18 banana mac nut muffins and 3 loaves of banana mac nut bread.... what else was I going to do with over 80 banana's? Along with fruits and veggies we hauled in a BUTTLOAD of gardenias as they are going off right now. John and I are drunk off the aroma that is filling the house. Below is some inspiration to get your little corner of goodies going!
