This year we've gotten off to a fast start on the garden. Luckily, our rosemary, thyme, mint, tarragon, chives, catnip and two varieties of strawberries all have come back from last year (i.e. free food), probably due to the mild winter we had here in the DC area. In addition, this year's crop includes green beans, pimiento peppers, fresno peppers, cucumbers, basil, flat-leaf parsley, cilantro, dill, scallions and four varieties of heirloom tomatoes (Mortgage Lifters, Mr. Stripeys, Purple Cherokees and Chris' grandfather's tomatoes). I would love to grow a lot more but we have a very limited area in the backyard in which to garden.
The white tree is our fringe tree that we planted a couple of months after we moved in. It's my favorite tree in the yard.
