It’s still April but my garden is producing fruit already! I have had several salads from my cut-and-come-again salad bowl; used fresh basil and two tomatoes in my homemade tomato sauce; fresh rosemary and thyme in my roasted chicken; fresh cilantro in homemade guacamole; and used fresh lavender leaves in a homemade hair detangler spray. I’ve even had a single strawberry already! If you thought that gardening required a whole lot of digging, weeding, and tons of space, think again. My garden isn’t even halfway planted, but it is already producing like crazy, and it all fits in about 1/3 of my small deck. Take a look at these photos:
My first strawberry!
My first tomatoes!
Many more soon to come!
