We are so grateful to have enough land for two large gardens at our home right in the middle of the city, and we just LOVE bringing our harvest straight to our dinner table! I thought I’d take a minute to share some photos of what’s growing in our gardens, so far, this season. I’d love to hear what you are growing, too, so leave a comment below to tell me about your growing adventure!
Our gardens have changed a lot since we dug our first hole just five short years ago. That first season, our garden consisted of only a few tomato and pepper plants we purchased at a local farmers market. The following year, we built four 4’x4′ raised beds and grew a variety of vegetables using the methods of Square Foot Gardening. We loved it so much that by the end of the season, we built 3 more beds – and started growing our own plants from seeds! You can check out that garden of ours by clicking here! The following year (last year), we moved to a new house with much more land, and we created the “Main Garden” pictured above. This year, we expanded to the other side of our property and planted an additional, slightly smaller garden (as you’ll see below).

You have a beautiful garden…thanks for sharing..
it’s really awesome! you guys definately know what you are doing – thanks for sharing.
Glad to see that you’re using the “Florida weave”! Lazy man’s tip: It’s even easier if you pre-string your posts at 8- to 12-inch intervals, then thread the tomato stems through them, rather than the conventional way. (The conventional way was developed in Florida–perhaps the worst place in the nation to grow tomatoes, but that’s another story–hence the name. It is intended to take advantage of two things: (1) Acres and acres and rows and rows of the exact same variety of tomato and (2) really, really cheap labor.) If you’re looking for a horror story, read about how tomatoes actually are grown in Florida in the book TOMATOLAND by Barry Estabrook. The subtitle is, “How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit”.
