Today is an exciting day.  Today we are going to eat our first meal from the garden.  I suppose 'meal' is a little misleading.  We picked 1 cup of spinach, not enough for a salad, but maybe I'll add it to our lettuce.  These things make me so happy.  It's a landmark day in our summer.

Here is our new garden.  This one we planted on May 11th.  We covered it with plastic and made a nice little green house to protect it from the frosts that we've had since then.  I think next year we could start earlier.

Nothing else is even close to ready yet,  so it's lots of spinach for now.  If you're like me and will only be eating spinach for the next month check out this website for important info on spinach.


  1. That looks so beautiful Gab! You will have so much fun picking fresh greens from it and weeding the few weeds that dare to pop up! We've been eating chives and that's it so far. Very cold spring here.

  2. Hi Gab! I'm soooo happy I saw your garden, and Angie's, too. I've bookmarked "The Square Foot Garden" website and can hardly wait to make a garden to be as proud of as you can be of yours - will have to wait for next summer, though. Loved my visit with you all. Look at your email for some pics from that visit.
