Someday I will have gardens. Plural. I need a flower garden for looking at and another for cutting - wouldn't it be phenomenal to have fresh flowers is your house every day? And of course I will have a food garden - tomatoes, peppers, zuchinni, squash, pumpkins. And maybe a little raspberry and/or strawberry patch to boot. As an apartment dweller, it's easy to dream big, especially when I haven't weeded for...well...a long time. We'll see how big my plans stay when I'm the one doing all the laboring.
In the meantime, I'm lucky to have friends who will share their bounteous crops with us. In the last couple of months we have been showered with the fruits of other people's labors: zuchinni (of course), tomatoes (roma, cherry, yellow, etc.), peppers, cucumbers, butternut squash, green beans, nectarines, raspberries, and even Asian pears (oh my - AMAZING!). This has led to some experimenting with new recipes, which I am pretty much always up for. I recently made Nectarine Raspberry Cobbler which was quite enjoyable (I substituted raspberries for blackberries and omitted the almonds). Now I want to try Peach Raspberry Cobbler - mmmm.
What do you/will you grow in your garden?
