Starting To Bloom - Watching Our Garden Grow

We have always wanted to plant our "own" garden...of sorts, but have never done it...until now!  This is the first year we are making an attempt and so far...despite the fact that I am truly clueless as to what I am doing as a gardener or farmer ( you'll see from the pictures) and already battling hungry bugs, who like the taste of our baby plants sweet leaves...we are having a blast watching our seeds and plants grow and bloom!  

In fact, the oldest has already been snacking on the green onions and he loves them!
These were all planted from seeds!  
I know...I know...the corn is not exactly popping up in rows (I always think of that Tim McGraw song)...but it's popping up and could be knee high by the 4th of July! 
These we purchased as baby plants.  
The raspberries was just a stick with NO green when we bought it!  It seems to be very happy where it's growing!  And you can see...we will have some red strawberries very soon!  We can't wait to pick them and taste test our own "HOME GROWN" strawberries!  YUM! We love fresh fruits and veggies!  
Expense wise...we have spent very little...but it's been a fun and therapeutic way for us to learn, nurture and grow some food of our very own.  
Time's been a little investment (watering and such).  
Hopefully PROFIT wise...we will be eating fresh veggies and fruits, straight from our back patio, shortly...

And my little GARDENERS are super excited about checking on our garden every day!

Will you be planting a GARDEN this year?

I was not paid to post this feature!  I was not compensated in any way by posting about our garden.  All plants have been purchased on my own accord!
