garden


Jonathan and the kids are planting our vegetable garden! Last year we grew tomatoes, squash, zucchini, peppers, pumpkins, cilantro, mint and basil. We would have had strawberries, too, but the damn bunnies ate them all. There is an abundance of bunnies in Colorado. At first I thought they were cute. Now I just think they are pests.

This year the strawberries and the mint grew back. And we bought another pumpkin plant and more tomatoes and cilantro and a loooooot more basil. We eat a lot of tomatoes and basil. My grandfather would approve. Last year the kids would just pick the cherry tomatoes and eat them while they were playing in the back yard.


I would have liked to have gotten some lettuce, too, but, like I said, the damn bunnies...

How do you keep the basil alive and thriving? Helpful hints, please.

We stick it where it can get the most sunlight. And water it every day. That's it. It grew like crazy last year!
