First time gardener

When we moved into our new place in South Portland, we got a place that had some yard to it, and we finally have the space to grow a garden! I bought the book called “Square Foot Gardening” and it’s been amazing! I have a 4×4 garden and I’m growing ten different things, and it’s so cool! I have purple string beans that are growing, and they turn green when you cook them – there was literally a day where there were these little stalks, and the next morning I went out and there were giant leaves on them! It’s super neat 🙂

My parents always had flower gardens when I was growing up and a couple of times they had a vegetable garden. I think the entire concept of gardening is so cool, especially when you can grow your own!

I am SO excited for the end of the summer to make fresh salsa and pasta sauce with food from my garden! Check out some photos of the progress so far!

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!

I'm Linda!
