We planted our garden last weekend! We planted 3 different types of tomatoes, grape, heirloom, and beefsteak...yum, yum, yum!!! Last year our tomatoes did not do so well but we have high hopes for this year!

Above is rosemary, oregano, cilantro, parsely, and mint. We use the first 4 alot but I am looking into some recipes that incorporate mint for this year.

This is arugula. I thought it would be fun to have to make our own salads with. Or you can substitute it for basil in pesto for a different flavor.

This is our basil. Last year we planted one plant and it grew like crazy and we made a crazy amount of pesto. This year we plan to make even more so that we can eat it all winter. It is yummy and easy to pull out of the freezer if you forgot to lay something out for dinner!
We also have a blueberry bush from last year. We added a strawberry plant to the patio and my husband picked out a tabasco pepper plant but picasa is being a bit tricky today with loading pictures!
