An Inspiration!!!

My husband has been out of town since last week. I miss him so much and can't wait for him to come back home. WHY??? Because I really NEED the camera he took with him, hahaha!!!

Well, without my favorite camera, I can't have great pics of what I have been cooking!!!

While I'm looking through "My Pics" and thinking what I should post on my blog today. I then recalled that this inspired me so much when I saw her beautiful garden. Now I know why I have tons of pics of plants from my tiny garden.

Do you see the tomato plants at the right corner of the above pic? I planted them on 4/12 in different spots. #1 in a very large planter, #2 in a smaller one and #3 & #4 in the ground.

On 4/23, they were growing bigger. Do you see the yellow buds? Next week, I will show you how big they are when I have my camera back, I promise!!
Last but not least, these are my lovely kitchen plants: parsley, sweet basil, Thai basil (under the white stool), chili, mint and my sweet tangerine. Oh, almost forgot!! Look at the right corner ~ do you recognize that plant? What is that? I believe it is garlic scape!! You can get a recipe for garlic scapes from She Ate What???.


  1. I am jealous of your green thumb! What a lovely garden. Every time I have grown basil or other herbs, they just die on me.

  2. The oragnges on your orange tree look Soooo yummy!! Your garden looks nice. =D

  3. Don't feel bad, Kim. Some of them die on me too. You just have to keep buying new ones. I have to keep that Thai basil in the shade because they keep dying (from the heat, I guess). I started with 3 basil plants, now I have only one left!!! =D

  4. You are so lucky to have this wonderful garden. It is too hot where I live and I can't get anything to grow, not even herbs! You will LOVE garlic scapes!

  5. lol that is funny about missing your husband because of the camera :)
    Thankyou for your lovely comments on my blog also. Im glad you like my recipes :)
    I cant even grow tomatos in pots and our soil is too sandy to put them in the garden (all veges weve planted die), so you are very lucky. I would love love love to have a veggie garden!

  6. Oh, thank you all so much for your lovely comments. You made me feel lucky that I have this wonderful garden! =D
