everyone has a hobby, and if it's free day you will find anthony outside in his garden. aaaaall day. yesterday was his first break after a chaotic work schedule, so aside from catching up on laundry, he put time into the plant babies. for a small yard, this guy has maximized what will fit. lots of raised beds, a massive greenhouse system in the back, and now the front yard is getting some love with newer fruit trees.
the garden is especially fun this year as plants become more established (at least from my impatient perspective... and probably his as well!). he bought the house in october of 2013, so this is his second spring haul. another unique aspect to the garden is that 90% is dedicated to food! his passion is growing his own produce so there are lots of greens, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, radish, beans, peas, corn, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, grapes, pears, apples, herbs, carrots, potatoes.... to name a few. and i know i'm forgetting something...
i joined him for a bit of the day... even mowed his lawn! ;)
here are some bits and pieces of the day... mostly in the golden hour as he finally called it day! everything is blooming and growing so quickly this year thanks to the mild winter!
i think he should have his own garden blog, don't you?!
