A kitchen garden.

Joyeux anniversaire à moi! It has been one month since I started this blog, and I'm celebrating by starting a kitchen garden. I am very lucky to have a door off my kitchen that leads to a part of the yard with an arbor, patio, and elevated flower bed. It's the perfect spot for grilling and for the year we've lived here I've had big ideas about turning the bed into a primarily herb garden.

And now, it's becoming a reality! It is still early in the season so I can only plant a few things--yesterday I put lettuces, rosemary, lavender, and strawberries in the ground. I am also trying to sprout some radishes, since I have trouble finding the young, tender radishes I became addicted to in France in this part of the country.

Even though there's no recipe here, I've submitted this to Weekend Herb Blogging over at Kalyn's Kitchen. Check out her recap, there are always tons of great recipes!

Great job!! I have raised beds too. I couldn't garden any other way now. Once the rain stops I'm going to start planting mine.

You could probably plant chives and garlic as well. I'm guessing that the garlic might work because it is still early enough in the year.

How envious I am that you already have workable soil in early March!
