Step Garden Update...My First Harvest

Okay, so I am super excited to have my first harvest from the garden! (Not including herbs) Just picked these two ripe zucchini and they look delicious! If you aren't familiar with my wonderful step garden built into the hill in my back yard then feel free to GET familiar over at My New Step Garden. Here's an update on the produce growing in it...

My Princess2 kept picking the dill and smelling it. I also have basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary, parsley and mint...and some petunias for fun!

My green peppers

My zucchini seems pretty happy in this space don't ya think?

A little bigger and I can have some fried green tomatoes! 

 And last but not least, the upper deck...tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, asparagus and pole beans.

Love my garden!! And what's great is that since it's only 4 feet wide, I rarely have tons of weeds!


  1. Your garden looks great! Wish mine looked half as good lol!

  2. great minds think alike...this was my post today. it is just way too much fun and too satisfying to NOT garden! happy harvesting!

  3. The step garden is such a good idea! Doesn't hog up too much room!

  4. thanks, Holly! It uses unused space too :) I love it!

  5. thanks! I will check yours out!

  6. Your garden looks great, garden tomatoes are the best!

  7. My attempts at Gardening In Stilettos have been horrid this season - I really need to figure out container gardening (and, perhaps, remembering to water - that could help) ;)

    Love the cornbread recipe and the idea to put the bacon drippings in a mason jar! Brilliant :)
