I've talked so much about all of this work we've been doing on the garden and outdoors, so I thought it was about time to show you the goods. Sadly, "the goods" haven't come up yet, but I'll show you what we have.
I feel a bit guilty writing this post, because this is truly Kyle's baby. I can't pinpoint why exactly, but he got REALLY excited about our first garden and ran with it. I can't tell you how many hours we've spent searching for the "perfect" plants in various stores around town, always ending in me dragging him away.
The previous owners already had the plot set, which they've been using for the past 15 years. They didn't plant last year, so
"We" makes it sound as if I did an equal amount of the work, buttttt that's not necessarily true.
After hours at multiple stores, here's what we came home with to plant:
Welcome to our 1st Garden:
We've had three nights of frost that have been touch and go as far as the life of our plants go. It's been so disappointing to wake up to frost across the ground and think that all of our garden could be toast. Thankfully, the plants are holding on strong for us!
We planted a lot of produce, even ones that we don't even eat in our home because someone (cough cough) can't handle the smell. That's right, we even planted ONIONS! I'm not sure what we'll do with them if they grow?
I'm holding out for this baby to produce some blackberries! Some have said we probably won't get any berries this year, but I'm positive if I stop by and talk to it everyday, it will hear my cries for berries and grow 'em! Spoken like the true Ann Arbor hippie that I am.
