How does your garden grow?

I really want a garden of my own.



I would love to be able to venture into my backyard and have all of the necessary herbs and veggies to create a fresh summer dinner. While roaming the Sheffield Garden Walk this weekend, there are so many people in the city, who live in tiny little apartments, that create beautiful gardens full of all types of flowers, vegetables, herbs, and plant life. My garden would definitely include:



What would you grow in your garden?

We grow lots of flowers on our roof, anything that needs lots of light! I love having flowers up there.

Liking your garden picks....I would def grow basil, mint and peonies. I think I'd also add some ranunculus, asparagus, corn and cucumbers. I actually wish I could grow every fresh veggie and herb! :D

Beautiful post! I can't wait to get a garden growing.

Head over to my blog if you have a sec. I am headed to Chicago in a couple weeks and noticed thats where you are from. I am looking for any and all suggestions on places to go and what to do while I'm there. :)

Thank you in advance. xo

I love all these garden images! I really, really want a garden too. I'd love to go out back and pick all the ingredients for a caprese salad (well, minus the cheese of course). Yum!

Absolutely love this- we have basil in our garden, but I'd die for peonies in my garden!

Natalie said...

Julie {love, julie} said...

This is a perfect collage and description of my PERFECT garden!!! I hope we both get them soon :)

I would grow peas- theyre SO delicious when they're fresh. And a gardener's advice: If you decide to grow mint, make sure you grow it in a container! It will take over your yard if you don't :)

I absolutely love gardens...mine would have to include honeysuckle and spanish broom because they smell like *HEAVEN*...unfortunately, I'm pretty sure I kill everything I even *look* at, so those plants might be safer some where else!!!
