4 Stones, 3 Beetles, and Half a Worm....

Today I decided to get out into the back yard and clear some area for my garden this year. Having intended to start a garden every year for the past 10 years, and never having made it, just having cleared out the area was a big accomplishment :) During my labor, I found 4 stones, 3 black beetles, and half a work (sorry worm :( ). They grow back right?
So here's a picture of my own little plot of land. I don't know what I'm going to plant in it yet. Perhaps tomatoes, zucchini, maybe some bell peppers, and then some herbs like basil and oregano. Any suggestions for someone who hasn't had a garden since childhood (and, let's face it, mom did most of the work;) ? I'll keep you updated as the garden progresses :)


  1. Basil, oregano and thyme grow quite well in the full sun and heat of our summers. So I'd have to agree those sound lik ea great start and are inexpensive to pick up. Iris grow well too but aren't as inclined to bloom all season.

  2. That's really good to know! I was definately going for things in full sun due to the way it's situated.

    I have a full front yard full of bearded iris and tulips already, so I'm good on the flower front. Things I can eat and maybe can come fall are definately on the menu. Someone suggested cucumbers, which I like, and I think they're easy. I would love some Pumpkins, but they take up so much space I'd have to clear out the other garden area back there....


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love to hear what you have to say, and I promise to get back to you as soon as possible :)
