Stella Bella Organics

Recession Garden: Year Two was planted here at the Stella Bella household a couple of weekends ago. I now have two raised beds 4' X 8' filled with tomatoes, yellow squash, okra, green beans, herbs, catnip for Mr. Gomez, and bell peppers. The strawberry plants from last year are going gangbusters now.

See the beautiful plants and our drip irrigation system.
Here is the first harvest of the magnificent berries. Organic and as perfect as Martha Stewart's. There is nothing like the taste of a fresh picked strawberry. I don't know why I named my garden after Stella Bella because you can bet these sweet little paws have never touched the outside since she graced my household.
Peace, love, and berries y'all!

Those strawberries look delicious!!! It's going to be a while before we have locally-grown fresh berries -- it's still quite chilly here!

OMG those strawberries are gorgeous. I'm taking this picture to the grocery store with me to show the produce manager what strawberries look like! Beautiful!

Oops. Forgot to do a garden. Yours looks great, and so helpful in this so-called economy.

I miss the strawberries that are not bought in the groceries.

My kitties paws look like that too. I'll never forget Whiskers got outside one evening and she walked on the grass. You should have seen her walk like she was touching something sticky...she didn't want to put her paws down. LOL
