Last summer, we bought our house, but the garden was already in full bloom for the season. This spring we were super excited to plan and plant a garden of our own. Living in WI for the past few years and being gone every summer, we haven't gotten to garden for a long time. We are lucky to have automatic sprinklers to keep our plants alive when we're up at camp and a wonderfully sunny and hot backyard to open us up to plants we could never grow in Seattle! Let me show you my favorite additions to our garden (the berries and trees that the house came with are awesome too, although it's been a little too hot for them and we haven't been the best pest-controllers of our trees, so much of the fruit is infested... we're learning!).
