Our little garden

The garden is a ground plot for the mind.- Thomas Hill, 1577

Here's our little vegetable garden in all its glory! Yes, I know there are weeds that need pulling. You should have seen it about an hour before I took this picture! LOL! Mark planted it-egg plants, cucumbers, okra, tomatoes, peppers (rosemary and lavendar from last year) and it's up to me and the girls to maintain it. Let's hope we have a better crop than last year. We planted a little late, so we're just now seeing some of the veges get ready to pick. I just love growing our own food-almost as much as I love eating it!

A small garden, accordingly, gives its owner a far greater opportunity to express himself ... in a garden any man may be an artist, may experiment with all the subtleties or simplicities of line, mass, color, and composition, and taste the god-like joys of the creator.- H. G. Dwight, Gardens and Gardening, Atlantic Monthly, 1912

Your garden looks great! I think our garden needs weeding too!

And thanks for the neat quotes. You have a beautiful blog.
