The past owners of our house were really into gardening and we were lucky to inherit their wonderfully landscaped backyard complete with beautiful flowers, plants and a great vegetable garden. Most vegetables are annuals and have to be replanted every year, so after a few long weeks researching on google, and a trip to a local nursery, we took advantage of the warm long weekend and got to work!
Here is picture of what we planted:
|In the garden: Three types of tomatoes, two types of bell peppers, zucchini, cucumber, leeks, green onions, 4 types of lettuce, basil, sage, rosemary, parsley, thyme and strawberries!|
In addition to what we planted, we were also pleasantly surprised to find a few perennial herbs and vegetables hidden around the garden:
We found this overgrown asparagus plant which was a great surprise since asparagus is one of my favourite vegetables. Did you know that asparagus can grow up to 5 ft?!?!
We also found beautiful herb plants like chives, mint and oregano.
Be sure to keep checking back as I will keep you updated on the progress of the vegetables as well as delicious recipes to accompany them!
