Our garden - the early stages.
My family is spending the summer on Long Island with my in-laws. More so than the extra space, a pool, and close proximity to the beach, we are looking forward to our organic garden! The goal is to grow all, or at least a good amount of, our own herbs and vegetables. Lofty ambitions? Perhaps. But my husband, Tin, and my in-laws, Predrag and Andrea, are avid gardeners and really seem to know what they're doing. Tin gets most all of our seeds from rareseeds.com, a fantastic website specializing in heirloom seeds. Rareseeds also provides helpful tips for the novice gardener, which I find quite handy, as I have not gardened much, aside from the obscure rosemary plant. Oh, and how is little Lukas taking to gardening? Let's just say he's a natural:
