Our garden

Today we planted our garden. Not the garden I imagined…but it’ll do. In fact, it’s probably just right for us this year. Some fresh herbs—basil, mint, rosemary...a tomato plant (we’ll see how that goes?)... and some lettuce and chard.

I had these grand plans of clearing out some of the randomly planted beds on the patio, starting seeds in the basement, and harvesting our bounty. But, I don’t have a green thumb, nor did I deal this spring. So instead I signed up for a CSA April-October and then last weekend I purchased some small organic plants at the New Canaan Farmer’s Market and today my sister-and-I transplanted them into pots I had stored in the garage.

Maybe next summer I’ll tackle a real garden. Or maybe not. We’ll see.
