My Kitchen Garden this 'Summer' was fun!!


I had loads of fun this summer which I thought of sharing with you pals. Parents were here from India, and Chicago is a great place to hang around. We went to lot of sightseeing before Diya was born.

I had created a beautiful kitchen garden in my patio with tomato, jalapeno and mint. All were a great success. I enjoyed a yield of almost more than 10lbs of tomatoes and 4 lbs of Jalapenos. Here are some pictures.

Ten pounds of tomatoes! How lucky, Sharmi! I know enough home gardeners who had crop failures this season (my mom included).

BTW, I sent you an email a few weeks ago w/ tips on template design. Hope you got it. : }
