Taking Root

We are beginning to put down our roots in our new neighborhood, and we aren’t the only ones- we have plants!. The home we bought came with an exceptionally deep lot, including a pretty big garden and various flowers around the perimeter.

I love the space and can’t wait for next spring. The plan is to install some raised garden beds, trim back some large branches to let in more light and plant new grass. The previous owners had some veggies coming in shortly after we moved in. Now, after some rain and growth, (and some weeding on my part) we are starting to recognize some delicious-looking foods back there. Like…

Tomatoes! Haha, you can’t tell from the picture, but the entire tomato bush took out the metal fence that was supporting it. It’s just sprawled out all over the dirt.

Pumpkins! Halloween is going to be fun!

Yellow peppers – I think…!

Cucumbers! And some pretty flowers popping up all over:


What kinds of plants do you guys grow? If you don’t have the space, what do you dream about planting in a yard?

Until next time!

  1. Cute garden! I have a ton of tomatoes, green beans, green peppers, zucchini, and jalapenos in my garden. It will have even more of a variety next year. The little yellow things you have growing in your garden are actually a type of tomato. Cute stuff! Love the blog.
