A couple months ago we planted seeds in our kitchen garden. We wanted to take advantage of great southern exposure and try our hand at growing some of the herbs and vegetables we use in our recipes.  We were off to a very slow start and, admittedly, were discouraged for a while. But we've now harvested radishes, dill and blossoms have finally appeared on our cherry tomato plants.
Not quite self-sufficient but we're proud, just the same.
