{ranunculus – one of my favorite flowers}

Tim and I are lucky enough to have a big backyard with lots of space for a garden. Last year, we grew tomatoes, potatoes, artichokes, jalepenos, and lots of herbs, and the beautiful weather we have had lately has me ready to start planting this year’s crops! We are going to add garlic, eggplant, carrots, squash, pumpkins, and lettuce to our garden for this year, in addition to lots of pretty flowers.

My friend Alana recently introduced me to Sprout Robot, a website that tells you when and how to plant different vegetables. They send you emails letting you know what to expect with your crops and how to care for them – so far, I am loving it and I can’t wait to start planting.

Do you keep a garden? What is your favorite thing to grow?
