Well, Emily and I have been working on our gardens to varying degrees of success.  This year I am still good at growing cabbage worms…  my three kale plants can attest to that.  The most exciting thing for me this year is that, in addition to my four little tomato plants and some cucumbers, I added some strawberry plants and started some seeds for the first time (some melons)!  I tried to start an herb garden but the amount of rain is actually drowning them … I need to add some drainage to my patio container.  And, I planted six little kohlrabi plants. Just because they are so funky looking. My garden is not even in a square plot, it is spread throughout various flower beds around my little yard.  I even put some corn and pumpkins in my front flowerbed … It will probably look pretty random to passers by here in a few months.  You can take the girl out of Indiana …

On that note, while I sit and wait for my garden to grow, I have time to share this with you!  This month we have a fun summer giveaway full of some random gardening, cooking, and foraging items.   Check out the goodies and enter below!
