I've Been Working in the Garden

So the garden is getting better!!  Rather than being stuck and crowded in their little plots, all the plants have been moved to their new homes!  They all are doing great so far, besides the cilantro looking a little wilted- you can pull through cilantro!!  Some of them are in their Earthboxes, and some of them are in normal planters, but hopefully they'll all flourish- oh and bonus, it appears that the mint I thought I had killed last summer is coming back!!  After I had planted them all (and run to Lowe's to get a couple more planters) I realized just how many plants I actually had, so I'll just be sticking with these for the summer... I think.  My little yard area can't really hold much more, with the new addition of a table and two chairs (Thanks Eva and Ron!!!).  Also, we finally set up our grill today, which has been almost 2 years in the making (aren't you proud Dad?!), and actually used it to make London Broil.... and we actually ate outside on our new table today- the first time that we've been able to do that since we moved into our apartment over 3 years ago.  We are moving up in the world :)

Tiny mint plants!

The grill

Perfectly cooked London Broil
So I'll be back soon with the dishes of what we had for our Memorial Day lunch.  One of the dishes was the best tomato salad I have ever had, so if you like tomatoes- try it!  Here's a sneak peak of what's to come.


  1. Nice! busting out the backyard. Now you just need to get some margheritas rolling and I'll be stopping by

  2. Everything looks WONDERFUL!!!!!! Garden, yard, and food! you are off to a great start to your summer!

  3. Jeremy- I will definitely have to do that! I could go for some margheritas right now.... next time you're in town we'll have to have a cookout.

    Eva- thanks! I feel really productive with the gardening and grilling... it only took us long enough!
