Savvy Student Shopper’s Garden Update 5/20

The first official harvest from the garden! A basket of lettuce for dinner, our first red strawberry, and some pretty flowers for the table

My garden is definitely coming along now! I’ve been working in it every chance I get. Everyone that gardens knows that there is always something still on your to-do list. It’s always a work in progress. Gardening is one of my favorite past times and I love to share that with you! My dream would be to have a sand-free and deer-free yard, but that’s just a part of game when you live on the woods near the water, I guess. I also have lots of herbs and a pallet filled with lettuce and spinach sprouts that aren’t pictured. It’s time for me to let the chickens out and play in some dirt. Catch ya later!

My first tomato!! My other half of the garden contains tomatoes (12 plants so far), green beans, more potatoes, some straggling asparagus, and garlic. More tomatoes and peppers are still on the to-do list.

Our apple tree has apples!! Last year we got ONE lonely apple, this year is looking much better. The deer keep munching the tree though, so I hope we still get some apples for us! I also remembered my neighbor right up the street has an enormous peach tree in his front yard. I’ll be talking to him soon 😉
