Growing up with fruit trees in my parents backyard, I knew I wanted a garden of my own one day.

There is nothing tastier then fresh fruit and veggies you can pick from your backyard.

However, our first home had a covered patio and our home now has a concrete patio.

Thanks to my friend at Gardening Squared we have figured out a solution. She made this beautiful raised bed for our patio.IMG_8113

Check out her work here.

Hubby and I took the kids one afternoon to a nursery to pick out the goods.

We came home and planted our little garden. We were all so very excited!

Here is what we bought:

Romaine lettuce


2 types of tomatoes


Onion (home experiment)IMG_4860 - day 1 Week 1 Update

After just 1 week our strawberries and our tomato plants were staring to flower. Our lettuce was producing more then we could eat and our onion was growing tall.

I absolutely love growing romaine lettuce! I pick a few leaves everyday for lunch.

The best part about lettuce, you are encouraged to pick often so it can produce more. Best purchase ever!!
