Earlier this spring, Chris and I made a promise to each other: we will not start a vegetable garden this year.
We will not start a vegetable garden this year. We will not start a vegetable garden this year.
It's tempting. You know how we love our fresh veggies. You may not know how quickly a list of fun projects can overwhelm me, though. And sometimes even how heaps of fresh veggies can overwhelm me. We decided that there are plenty of other projects we'd like to work on this summer without the designing and planting and maintenance of a vegetable garden looming over us. Maybe another year, but for now you can find me outside puttering around at a leisurely pace and taking frequent, substantial reading breaks.
In lieu of a vegetable garden, we've dedicate a few pots to our favorite herbs starting with a container of luscious mint or "mojitos in training", as I like to call them. Perfect for adding to your water bottle or muddling into a house mojito.
