Here are some pictures of our progress. You may see a lot of bare spots and spotty grass...typically we don't grow much grass. The point is to grow as much food as we can.
Many of the plants are started from seed, some from the vegetable such as potatoes, and some are purchased. Some experiments work. Last year we tried artichokes...didn't work. This year I've started seeds for small Italian zucchini. They were found in markets in Rome. They are small and sweet and many times stuffed. They are beautiful. Maybe it will work, maybe it won't.

thinking my new hat from Asbury Park is a little small.
I think the sweet potatoes were planted a little too early but the same thing happened last year and it turned out well. These were purchased. I have 9 in all.
More pics of veggies...
My lime bush...hey, if you are going to drink
Tequila on the rocks with a little lime why
not grow your own.
And then there is the experimental patch...seeds from fruits and veggies. Who knows how this will turn out.
Every yard needs their lawn ornaments...

Last year this type and color plant attracted several hummingbirds. It worked last year. Let's try it again.
The boy and I started gardening together when he was very young...
