I am sure I have the smallest garden God created, but I was bound and determined to grow a few things that hubby and I love and enjoy. I waited almost 10 years after moving in our home and decided I wasn’t going to wait any longer.
As you can see in the picture above, my garden consists of 1 tomato plant and 2 green pepper plants. A neighbor graciously gave me some from his extensive garden he has around his home. He was my inspiration that you can have a garden around your home and make it not look like a garden. You see, we live under HOA rules and you can’t see a garden from the street. But you have 3 other sides to your home. And the only “extra” space I have is on the south side of my home.
I already had 2 blueberry bushes planted on either side of the plants mentioned and they have been there for a few years. I get a bowl full of blueberries, but they haven’t been in the ground long enough to produce a lot.
Since the green peppers were pretty much ready to be picked, I could’ve waited until they were a bit bigger, but I wanted to make Chicken Fajita Wraps and I needed the green peppers. It always gives me a smile to be able to cook with something I grew. It has been too long since I have had a garden.
The recipe I used came from Plain Chicken. These are really good and my hubby loved them. He isn’t a big Mexican food eater, but he loved these. I know when he loves something when he says after dinner, “I should’ve have ate that last fajita”. Always makes me feel good inside.
I will be posting more pictures as the tomatoes start to ripe. I know my hubby is waiting for those!!
Have a wonderful day and go dig in some dirt!
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
