Wily Wednesdays - Edibles

This week is a little different -- less crafty and more planty. Since Kai and I have been working so hard on our garden for the past few months, I thought I'd share the fruits (and vegetables) of our labors. We started growing a lot of our seedlings back in March while we were still at the apartment, and in the meantime we slowly prepped Randy's yard every weekend and brought over the starts as they became ready. Right now we have a few ripe blueberries and strawberries, and we've been making good use of our mixed greens and pansies. This is the first time I've had a productive garden in my own yard, so I'm pretty proud.

In the beginning . . .

And then we brought life . . .

Now it looks like this:



  1. That is the prettiest salad I've ever seen :)

  2. Thank you! I don't think I've ever had so much fun making a salad.

  3. I love that bowl of salad greens, flowers and herbs - so gorgeous! I can't wait to build this up even more next year with raised beds and LOTS more plants.

  4. I need to update these photos, too. Our garden has grown quite a bit in the last few weeks.
