This week’s freebie is a gardener’s bonanza that comes just in time for spring, sunshine and a sizable outdoor to-do list! I don’t know about you, but I’m jonesing to play in the dirt. I can’t wait to build a couple of raised beds for salad greens, squash, tomatoes and cucumbers. I’m also going to hang some baskets of nasturtiums and strawberries from the front porch. Oh, and I can’t forget my herb and cut flower garden.

    My favorite fruit of my labor is the fresh spinach and herbs. We eat a lot of salads and always love to use frsh herbs when we can! Our growing season is short, so we use as much as we can!

    what kind of veggies/fruits do i eat straight from the garden? anything i possibly can! LOL ill even eat fresh asparagus straight out of the bed… my husband ate the peas one year, right from the vine… that and the tomatoes..he'd see a green one of a good size in the morning and take it with him for lunch by letting it ripen in the sun.. that used to get me soo mad! I also eat fresh blueberries in the morning with breakfast when my plants are up and growing great.. my husband shannon has been patiently waiting for out apple trees to put out fruit so he can pick some whenever he feels like it.. the best was when i got 2 oranges off of my trees and was able to eat a fresh orange. shannon, my husband couldnt believe the taste of super fresh oranges. made him appreciate the money i put into growing them myself. this year he wants me to do an all out bigger herb garden and cut flower garden. hes my biggest supporter

    Tomatoes! You can't beat a home grown tomatoe fresh out of the garden. My favorite is a tomatoe and mayo sandwhich.

    Heirloom tomatoes, still warm from the sun and dripping with juice.

    I love sugar snap peas! They grow near the stairs on the deck so when I come home they are nice treat peaking through the railing. I also love fresh strawberries, but you can't beat the wild strawberries found near my house in Alaska so I don't even try to grow them myself. I got a late start on planting seeds last year as it was the first year in our place, but I'm hoping to have a larger garden and assortment of fresh veggies and herbs!

    I love fresh green beans and tomatoes. I enjoy watching my fall bulbs bloom in early spring. Lastly, I enjoy watching the blue birds working so hard to make a nest.

    The favs from my garden are tomatoes, jalapenos but I also love the Cilantro and Basil :)
