Anderson Greenhouse and Nursery

Anderson Greenhouse has become one of my favorite places to be. I feel in love with plants three years ago (how did it take me so long???) and this place has become a frequent stop for me. Normally I stop and peruse and daydream about moving in with the plants, but today I actually had an agenda: find the veggies. One of my favorite things about living a healthy lifestyle is that I get to do so much of this myself. For some people, that would be overwhelming. For me, it is empowering. I love knowing that I am capable of taking care of my family.

Tomorrow, the edible garden is going in. I am seriously so excited. I have lived with windowsill gardens for the past few years and, while lovely, am so ready to have the space to do so outside. Our home still doesn't have the room for an outdoor garden, but thankfully I have the best mother-in-law ever and she is letting me take as much of her garden space as I want. Lots of garden space + time with my MIL = so grand 

Going in the garden this year: tomatoes (I have grand visions of making a year's worth of tomato sauce this summer. Stay tuned for updates on that.), cauliflower, kale, spaghetti squash, peppers, strawberries, rosemary, basil, oregano, peppermint, spearmint, parsley, cilantro, and lavender (four varieties; can you tell that I am forever in love with lavender?).

What are you all keeping in your summer gardens? Any tips on growing cauliflower and kale? They are new to me!
