When we moved into our rented place in Kirkland, we were so pleased that it came with garden boxes. It was hard to leave our amazing garden behind in Portland, but having the plots already established here made it a little easier to adapt to a new place. The boxes are a little rickety, but they serve their purpose, and I know we are going to enjoy a summer full of delicious homegrown fruits and vegetables.
|vegetables: strawberries and onions; Gerbera daisies (my favorite flower!) and marigolds brighten up the corners|
|vegetables: carrots and onions; flowers: snapdragon and a marigold|
|ALL of the lettuce varieties! our salads will never be boring (or lacking) again! with marigolds and a sunflower-like flower in the corners|
|Betsy's a big fan of the garden, and she loves being outdoors whenever I am!|
|these potted onions are really growing!|
