Summer Gardening

Summertime is so fun and exciting, especially for those who do not live in the tropics, where we can experience sunshine and warmth all around. Well, minus those harsh hot, and humid days. There are so many events and activities that one can do even within the privacy of their yards. It is also a time for catching up with people we have not seen or hung out with in a long time.

One of the main highlights of my summer days is growing my garden and especially reaping the harvest. I do not have much space, but I entirely use my deck. As a result, it looks rather green and luscious. In addition, I have grown a lot more, and my knowledge has evolved regarding growing certain crops.

As I mentioned in a previous post, a few of my neighbors, my hubby, and I have started a garden at the far end of our complex, and we are so excited to see how well it will do. Our goal is to encourage others to grow whatever foods they can.

Things Planted

In my garden, you will find jalapenos, bell peppers, zucchini, watermelon, pumpkin, corn, cucumbers, white potatoes, carrots, mints, and other herbs, green beans, okras, tomatoes, strawberries, blackberries, golden raspberries, and grapes.

Maybe it is just me, but my potatoes tasted more delicious than store-bought ones.


These tomatoes came from our group garden

My son loves being in the garden and is always the first to taste the crops. It pleases me greatly to know that I am teaching him the value of growing his food and that he enjoys every moment.

Follow for more updates, and until next time, God’s wealthiest blessings.
