“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow” -Audrey Hepburn
I can not take any credit for these vegetables that were grown in our very first backyard garden. My husband has been the caretaker since spring right down to building the raised bed. To say that I am impressed is a complete understatement. It all started with him asking me what vegetables I wanted and many tiny little starter plants. Just because he wanted to try his hand at a garden.
I know 100% that I do not have a green thumb so I was more than happy to see him to do this. I am proud of him. All throughout the summer we had lettuce, broccoli, green beans, snap peas, snow peas, yellow zucchini, green zucchini, squash, more yellow zucchini, cherry tomatoes, roma tomatoes, more yellow zucchini, jalapeno peppers, bell peppers, more yellow zucchini, poblano peppers, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and………more yellow zucchini.
Yes, there is a pattern there. I think we will not have more than one yellow zucchini plant next year. I had to find several different way to make yellow zucchini and give a lot away.
The reason for this post, however, is to show how much pride I have in my husband for accomplishing this, mainly to see if he could do it and also doing it for me. There is nothing better than going into your own backyard to pick your own homegrown vegetables to serve with that evening’s dinner.
