2015 Fruit, Vegetable & Herb List

Here I am at the beginning of the growing season trying to be good and record the garden goodness. I hope I can keep up with recording as the maintaining and harvesting begin! 

This first picture is of our first garden - 2 4'x4' beds and a trellis for cucumbers. That's it! The picture doesn't give scope to that first garden, but I had to add it because of the obvious cute factor of Ella as a 6-month-old (she was THE sweetest of babies). The garden has come a long way (so has Ella!).
