Spring 2020 Urban Homestead Garden Tour

I expended this part of the garden last year and I planted my herbs in this raised bed.

Hey friends! Today I’m hoping on here to share my backyard garden with y’all ūü§ó. Spring is such a beautiful time for new beginnings even when we are dealing with a virus. In my garden tour I discussed my future plans for my garden. I hope y’all enjoy it.

I have fallen in love with eating kale from my garden. This variety of “curly kale” is perfect for people who don’t have a lot of space.


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog once again. If you are growing a garden this year let me know in the comments what are you growing in your garden.

I planted this kale last year in the fall and it is still going strong.

Garden Harvest & Updates| July 2017

Good afternoon y’all!

The garden in the backyard is growing really well and I was even able to pick a small harvest today when I went out there to do a little pruning. I recorded a quick vlog of my garden showing y’all how my garden looks this past weekend. My pickling cucumbers are finally growing bigger, I have tomatoes growing, peppers, and okra! Of cousre my blackberries are ready to eat too. However they hardy make it to the basket (I can’t stop eating them)!

Look at those delicious blackberry!

My none pickling cucumbers are huge! I couldn’t believed that I was able to grow a cucumber this big. This is proof that you don’t need a large garden to grow food.

Here are a few more pictures of my small backyard garden. As always leave any questions that you may have below in the comments I’ll be sure to get back with you soon!

Have a great weekend y’all! I hope I’ll be back soon with another blog post. In the mean time follow me on all of my social media to see what I’m up to!

Growing Heirloom Tumbling Tom Yellow Tomatoes 

Good Morning Friends and happy Saturday!

I’ve walked Cam, tended to the garden, and now eating breakfast. How has your morning been? 

This year I’m growing Tumbling Tom yellow tomatoes in a container on my deck. This is the perfect tomato plant to grow if you live in an apartment, have a small yard, or want ease your way into gardening without the full commitment of a raised bed. These sweet little tomatoes are so yummy its hard not to eat them all straight from the vine. 

As you can see in the pictures below. This tomato plant grows like a small hanging bush. I have to bamboo sticks and string to keep it growing up straight. This would also grow perfectly in a hanging basket too. 

I bought my plant from a local gardener in my area. I’m sure y’all could find something similar to this one in any plant nursery, greenhouse,online, or Lowes, etc. in your aera. 

The other night I chopped these juicy tomatoes up in a bean and rice dish.  It was so yummy! I hope this encourages y’all to grow your own tomatoes.  Growing your own food is not hard it takes just a little patience and lots of love!

I hope y’all enjoy the weekend!

Raised Bed Garden update| June 2017

Good Morning y’all!

I’m back with another garden update. My veggies are growing very quickly and I wanted to share with y’all my progress. Still no harvest however I’m sure I’ll be blogging about that soon. I’m almost 20 weeks pregnant so I sound a congested and breathing hard (bear with me). I’ll do a blog post about my experience being pregnant soon. If you have any questions please feel free to leave then in the comment section and I’ll get back with you soon. Below I uploaded a few pictures of my garden.

It’s amazing how much you can grow in a small space.

Here are my bush beans starting to grow.

I have tiny cucumbers starting to grow too.

Growing my on Food

Happy Thursday Y’all!

I have medium sized and cherry tomatoes, spicy and banana peppers, collards, cucumbers, blackberries, and strawberries in my garden.¬†¬†Last weekend¬†I planted my cucumber plant that I grew from a seed into my vegetable bed. This is my second year growing cucumber in my garden and thought I’ll give it a try again. I’ve been growing my own food constantly for three years now, but I have always been interested in having my own garden.

I would have to say John from the¬†YouTube channel¬†Growing your Greens¬†really inspired me to want to grow more organically and support locally green houses. I didn’t know¬†anything about gardening¬†outside of the basics but John will helped my become a better gardener. I also enjoy watching Patti from the¬†YouTube channel GardenGirltv.
