This past weekend, I spent a couple of days getting down and dirty in my gardens as I planted flowers, tomatoes, dill, basil, rosemary, bell peppers, parsley...the list can go on and on.

What types of flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruits will you be planting this year? In celebration of garden planting season, I'm sharing with you recipes straight from the garden!
