This Memorial Day weekend presented the perfect opportunity to introduce two additions to The Kitcheneer, the garden and Jake. As a guest contributor to The Kitcheneer I am very thankful for the wonderful meals my wife prepares, and for everyday that we are together.
Living in a semi-urban environment presents limited options for starting your own garden. The approach taken for our garden was a simple above ground, cedar framed, box. Each of the two boxes were filled with a garden soil mix, and protected from small animals by a white wire fence.
We wanted to grow several healthy staples that are routinely used in our kitchen. This included an assortment of vegetables and herbs:
The following two pictures show the one week progression of our garden. We are currently in the process of thinning out the leafy greens and finding a location to transplant them. Please stay tuned for updates on the state of the garden and the wonderful recipes that Amanda uses them for!
Looks beautiful. Nothing better than fresh garden food!
