My deck.

Heatherb1011 in Ocean City, MD

Herbs, veggies and some flowers.
There is nothing more fun, rewarding and tasty but cooking with my own herbs and veggies just a few steps away from the kitchen. Dill, my fave, is especially useful in many summer recipes for deviled eggs, potato salad and even in burgers :)

1 of 23: Darrin building me an herb/veggie box from deck wood. Cost online for one of these boxes was $300 and up. We only spent $50 for materials. (And he made me for free!)

Note to self: First time growing zucchini squash and cucumbers. They need ROOM! Oops! Lesson learned!

Everything is growing. I didn't use any plant food either. Just organic soil and then organic manure and humus.
