In the garden today..
Things are in bloom all over the place in our Backyard Eden. We have sunflowers that have taken over their portion of the perennial garden beside the house. We are growing Mexican Sunflowers, Mammoth Russian, Lemon and Autumn Beauty all growing in there.
We love growing sunflowers because they bring in the pollinating insects and bees. The bees really do love the sunflowers every year.
These beautiful flowers are planted in our side veggie garden as I call it. It was actually unused space that was just growing weeds between our house and the neighbor's house. We have decided that later this year that area will become our new perennial garden. We plan on planting Asparagus, Artichokes, Blackberries, Raspberries and many more. Stay tuned for more information.

About Backyard Eden
We are a small family who have decided to make a major life change by going from not caring about our food to a family that works hard to grow their own food. The change came after realizing supermarket food was not as it seemed. The journey began by researching gardening and all of the methods of growing our own food. We then started planning our first vegetable garden because we wanted to know exactly what went into the growing of our foods as well as where they came from.
