Hi all! Hope your weekend was a good one. My family and I took a quick little getaway trip to St. Augustine, Florida, the nation’s oldest city. Luckily for us, this hugely charming city is only about an hour and a half from our home.

We visited with friends, heard lovely stories about many of the old homes dating back from the 19th century, indulged in some good ol’ fried oysters and catfish, swam in the ocean, and simply enjoyed each other’s company.

Upon our return home, we had these lovelies waiting for us…

We planted our veggie garden about a couple of months ago and it has totally EXPLODED!! We planted cherry tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, snap peas, basil and cucumbers and everything is growing. Last year, we barely had anything. However, this year the veggie God’s were good to us!

We think the difference is that we used compost from a mushroom farm which our plants are obviously loving and thanking us for. There is nothing better than going out to your own chemical free garden and harvesting what you need for your meal.

Garden… we thank you!!

Anyone else planted a veggie garden this year? If so, how is it going? What do you think helps your veggies/fruit grow well? Would love to hear from you in the comments. Smile
