the urban garden

It's that time of year around here when eating healthy becomes a little more fun.

Romaine ready to eat almost every day

cilantro, parsley, mint and rosemary

2 varieties of heirloom tomatoes. I'm the only one that eats them or there would be more!

swiss chard - hopefully getting big enough to go in a "gratin of greens" recipe my mom sent.

JalapeƱo - you will be lovely paired with those tomatoes in some salsa

I call this one "sophie with sage " :)

I've been really busy with the garden so far this season and I can do so much more this year than I could last year. It worked outside all day Sunday and then had to go to the trainer today with really sore shoulders and hamstrings. She was very sweet about it and worked around my soreness and I still got a great workout.

Tomorrow is cardio in the morning and yoga and night which is a tough one. It almost killed me last week but I have to keep pushing myself that little bit more. It seems every pound is a fight but it's a fight worth having!


  1. Screw the Farmer's Market! I'm coming shopping at your house. I'm home this week; let's yoga! :-)

  2. Looks great! I cant wait to get mine goin!

  3. You're living in a salad bar! Way to go with the gardening and all the exercise, Tina. You're killing it!

  4. looks lovely !!! I hope that hubby gives me some $$ to do a little gardening this year :)

  5. Your garden is really inspiring - how can you NOT eat well with all of that lovely produce?!?

    Oh, and I want to see your hair pictures, miss hair-twin! ;)

  6. Oh I love your garden!! And you're DO have a big back yard. So when are we going to plan that blogger meet-up at your place? lol

  7. I want a garden so badly, but I live in urbanity! I will be living vicariously through you.

  8. I'm so ready for my little patio garden! Probably at least another month before I can plant though. I think I'm going to add a green pepper plant this year. I just love the way they look in a pot.

  9. Tina - I'm over at

    Come on over!!
