Since I’m getting back into my garden it has been nice looking back to when I had a nice garden. Back to when I used to spend a lot of time in it.
As I am trying to get my garden under control again, it has been good to look back and see what I am capable of doing. I figure if I have done it once, why can’t I do it again.
When I was doing it back in 2011 I was so proud of what I was doing and what was happening. I loved growing food. It is something that I have never felt like I was good at.
Growing food in the garden
There are limitations on what I can grow and I know from experience that I have to take it slowly. This summer I am just growing the basics. What I would use in salads really.
I really want to grow some tomatoes. Why is it that they always taste better when they are homegrown? I tried growing some last year, but they didn’t do well. They were planted in a pot with fairly old soil and I think that was the problem right there. They grew but were small.
This year I have new soil and I am going to get into composting big time. Just trying to work out how to make it work for me. You know, so I actually use it.
So I am leaving you today with photos from 2011 and how my garden used to look back then. Looking back can be a good thing and it really has inspired me to realise that I can do it again.
The photos are from the front, side and back yard.
Most of what I am doing this year is in the front garden. I will do a post this week on it.
