Today marks the first day of Autumn and I'm doing a little reflecting on my summer projects. This year I decided to start a small garden in my back yard and I can honestly say that it was an enjoyable experience. In my garden, I grew: (4) tomato plants, (2) habanero plants, (1) eggplant, sweet onions, Thai chili peppers, spicy bell peppers, cucumbers, mint, sweet basil, and purple basil. I had an amazing harvest this summer and I'm hoping that it continues at least until mid fall. Everything was delicious, but my tomatoes were especially plump, sweet and luscious. My peppers were hot hot hot
I first developed an interest in growing food during the Covid-19 pandemic. During the initial quarantine I had the opportunity to work from home and learn more about house plants and gardening. I started growing a few herbs: oregano, cilantro, sage, thyme, rosemary, mint, and basil. After my mini success with growing herbs, I decided to explore peppers. I grew habaneros, chili peppers, and spicy bell peppers. On a previous post, I highlighted my harvest and featured my very own candied habanero peppers. Overall, I had a blast playing in the dirt and learning how to grow food this summer. I would encourage anyone to venture into the world of gardening. It was (is) very rewarding. Next year I hope to expand my garden and work more on spacing and cultivating my garden's soil.
