This is the first year that I’ve decided to try an organic garden and I’m really excited. Of course, since I’m so new at this, any tips or advice would be very welcome! Part of the garden (to the right) is just for flowers, but the rest contains many wonderful foods:

  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Beans
  • Dill
  • Zucchini
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Tomatoes
  • Marigolds
  • Cucumbers

I started mostly with seeds, but also with a few tomato and cucumber plants that my mom had left over from starting her garden. I’m going to have to learn as I go a little bit with organic pest control, but hopefully some straw or grass clippings will help with the weeds.

I’m also crossing my fingers that there will be enough to eat and some left over to preserve. There’s nothing like eating homegrown food even in the winter!

Have you started a garden this year? I’d love to hear about it!

I started gardening this year – organically also – in raised beds. I learned a whole lot and ate some great veggies this summer, and my kale is still going strong in November. I’d love to hear more about how your garden turned out!
