Garden Bounty

This year we were so excited to have a yard, it meant we could grow our very own garden full of vegetables and even flowers.  We started planting back in late April, we built a raised bed for a variety of veggies including spinach, Italian lettuce, carrots, beets, green peppers, and cucumbers.  As you can see above, all of our patience and watering work has paid off in BEETS!  Soon, we will be creating a delicious recipe to include these little gems.
