I love growing my own food. After living at Punta Mona and cooking with freshly harvested fruits and vegetable we grew and harvested just feet from the kitchen, I couldn't wait to have my own garden back in the DC area. What started with an ever-growing collection of potted plants on our apartment window sill blossomed into a full vegetable garden when we bought our house this spring. Here are some of my favorite garden photos of the season:
So far we've harvested butternut and yellow squash, carrots, beets, tomatoes, green and purple basil, oregano, and rosemary. On the way are the acorn squash, sweet and hot peppers, and tomatillos!
I hope you'll dig in the dirt, plant some seeds, and enjoy the delicious fruits of your labor!
