One of the best features of the new AB HOME office is that we have room for our first garden. Several weeks ago I posted my attempt at getting my seeds started. I was a little worried, but I am happy to say I am not only a gardener, but I am fast becoming Martha Stewart. Look out woman, I am going to give you a run for your money! Inspired by my new found skill set I decided to go to the local garden show, and it was awesome.

The Bloom n’ Garden show at the agricultural center in Franklin TN is put on by the Master Gardeners association and they sell exotic plants and give workshops on how to garden. I was in heaven. I picked up some lavender and mint… which I cannot wait to use for Mint juleps in June…so stay tuned for that!

Here I have started transplanting my seeds to their outdoor home. Above I have basil, tomatoes, strawberries, lemon verbena and chives, YUM!

Here is my mint and oregano (shown above)

And here is our yellow squash. Having to keep an eye on these beauties because the office backs up to a green belt filled with bunnies. I still have to transplant the lettuces, cilantro and dill. The weather has been unseasonably warm so the lettuce may not make it….we will see.
