Beautiful!

  1. What a grand tour. I like the sink a lot too and how wonderful to have a greenhouse. DH planted stevia a couple of years ago and it came up and did quite well. It didn't overwinter though. Maybe it needed to be dug up and protected. I don't know, I just know it disappeared. Looks like you have a good start for a garden this summer.

    1. Thanks Darla, I am quiet anxious about the stevia. And it is so exciting to see the seeds come through the dirt. I'm amazed me everytime.

  2. Now you have me wanting to save my money for a greenhouse! I love the perfect size and the sink is just right. I am a bit amazed that you can plant your garden without using a fence. The deer and groundhogs would eat mine alive. The Steevia growing is interesting and those cactus are spectacular. I'd love to spend a day out there in your garden!
