How the garden grows

I can’t say much about the garden because it really is Heath’s thing. He has taken it upon himself to be the designated green thumb of the doodle house and it’s beyond impressive. Our coffee table and bookshelves have become overrun with books on square foot gardening, sustainable living and a load of other similar titles. He’s taken gardening to heart and it’s really beginning to show in our back yard. It’s only January, but already we are seeing sprouts in the garden and bright green accents popping up in a sea of brown leaves. I can’t wait to see how things will start to look in the spring.

Hopefully, eventually, we can get our pots to resemble some of my mother’s creations. Not just her thumb, but entire hand, is green. We’ve been inspired by some of her babies below.
