  1. YOu're harvesting?!!?!?!? what's that growing up and over the entrance of the garden, is that a grapevine? YOur garden is so dreamy!!

  2. I like the way you organized this post - I may copy this! (by the way, did you recently redesign your blog? it's very cute)

  3. Thank you. :) Yes, that's grapevine over the entrance. It is going crazy this year. I didn't really train it properly and now I see why I should have. :D It is producing grapes though. We are harvesting but I got our garden in really early. Our winter was so mild that I was pretty sure it was safe to get a jump on it.

  4. Thanks, Shannan. I did change things up a bit. :) You are more than welcome to copy this...I borrow many blog ideas all the time! :)


I love comments! Thanks for taking time to leave me a message. I'll be sure to get back in touch with you!
