Introducing our Garden of Herbs, Fruit, and Vegetables

Published by at 2:12 pm under Gardening

This post has been a work-in-progress since April of this year when we started taking pictures of our garden. We are finally proud to feature it on our blog as a main link that will take you to the gallery and inside our backyard that boasts a garden full of fresh herbs, vegetables, and fruit trees.

Daniel has worked so hard the past couple of months to keep our garden healthy and thriving, and it looks like he’s been very successful. We had the joy of using a lot of these harvests for many of our dishes that we’ve featured on this blog.

Click the link above called Our Garden so you can view the 60 photos of our garden. Check back regularly, as we will be continually updating the progress of some of our new plants! For our close friends and family – you will be reaping the rewards of our harvest since the 2 of us alone can’t finish everything!

While taking some photos yesterday, we were able to pick some fruit and vegetables. What a colorful basket of freshness!

    Way to go! The many, many hours are paying off. The garden looks AWESOME (and delicious too)!

    Gorgeous! Wish we could do the same. What a great time of year to have fresh fruit and veggies.

    Wow – all of your fruits and veggies look so wonderful! I have a very (very) small garden, and would love to expand next year. Your pictures are very inspiring!

    wow! looks great! have you calculated how much you save by growing fresh veggies/fruits in your backyard?

  7. thefoodaddictson 28 Jun 2009 at 9:38 pm

    Hmm, no we didn’t calculate our savings. I think we enjoy the convenience of having the produce in our backyard, to prevent running to the grocery store all the time. Also, we grow everything without pesticides, so it’s organic!

    Thanks for the comments – we hope we inspired more people to have a garden!

    Very nicely done steps, pictures and end products. I personally know the food is excellent too.
    Keep the good work.

    I just happened to come across your blog and have to tell you how impressed I am. Do keep up the good work.

    I too, grow a garden every year. I live quite close to you in an older neighborhood with a good sized back yard. BTW I also have a saturn peach, plum and Asian pear tree growing. This year (finally) my black jambu (a S.E Asian bell shaped fruit) is ready to go into the ground. How did you manage to get your tomatoes to bear such lovely fruit? Every year I put in a variety of heirloom tomatoes but had a very disappointing crop last year.

    Will be starting a garden again soon and just wanted to know if you would like some vegies in the summer time. I usually end up with way too much for personal consumption because we are a small family. I think my husband and I suffered from Japanese eggplant overkill last year.
