Sunday in the Garden with Tom

Okay, I was only out in the garden for like 5 minutes but I did weed some of the lettuce and onions. This year is Tom's year to do the garden. He is very meticulous about it. He has labeled everything and has a calendar for harvesting etc. That is so different from the first year we were here and it was my garden. Yes, my style was willy-nilly. I had no idea what I was growing and when the veggies would be ready to pick. This, my friends, is why we are together. Tom is organized and conscientious and I am random and willy-nilly.

Anyhow, if you are a regular Carolyn in Carolina reader you know this begins my endless documentation of the garden. If you are a new reader, get ready because I take pictures of every little thing. I am a garden geek and am always amazed that we grow our own food. Hopefully soon, I will have all my endless "look what I picked today" photos. How I love the summertime and gardening!

Enjoy the photos.


  1. Hello Carolyn... Organized and Willy-nilly looks pretty darn good, everything is so neat and tidy.

    It's nice that you can burn stuff..Yep that's one of the perks of living in the country.

    I have a sister who lives in the upstate and hope to join her this fall.

    Nice to meet you, come have a visit sometime at Vetys's View

  2. Your garden looks great, Carolyn. I love fresh lettuce for dinner - it's one of my garden favorites.

    I was wondering... what kind of trees are those lined up on the edge of your yard to the left of the garden (top photo)?

  3. I'm getting my hands dirty today, myself. ;)

    Can't wait to see how your garden grows over the next few months! You have a beautiful backyard.
