How Does Your Garden Grow

Happy Tuesday!!  Last week we planted our garden.  We have some woods behind our house that keep our back yard pretty shady.  The only spot that gets all day sun is the driveway.  Since the hubster was a little opposed to turning the driveway into a garden (weird, huh?) we opted to use a tiny little 12"x8' strip right against the house. 


Technically this spot is indeed on the driveway, but off to the side.  Since we have limited space, I opted to plant only the basics - tomatoes, peppers, zucchini and some lettuce.  I also planted a bunch of herbs in some containers - rosemary, sage, cilantro, basil, thyme and chives.


Yum, yum, yum!  With all these delicious fresh herbs right outside my kitchen door, I thought I'd peruse the blogworld to find some new recipes to try.  Here's the first one that made me drool on my keyboard caught my eye ;)


Now I just need to find a few for all those other yummy herbs!

Your garden looks great! I love having fresh herbs on hand too to use when I cook!

I never would have thought of something so clever! That is the cutest little planter box, what a great idea to use the space you have.
