I've by now, got a few years of knowing our yard, the sun & what works well in our landscape, to venture into some new fun gardening.
It's finally fully planted & of course, in true Ohio style, has gone from 80 degrees to frosting, so we've had to cover plants & we shall see, what survives this years weather that is, like every year, bound to be something new!
We had SO much fun & I can't wait to see what pops up, (literally!) this year.
Mr.Stripey. Because come on, I couldn't NOT buy a tomato named Mr. Stripey!!
The boys planted their seeds, in the cute little Sesame Street pots & green house, from Grandmas easter basket. One is beans, one is sunflowers & both have since grown & been transplanted! I'd also like to say, that these come with little wooden devices, for patting & mixing soil.. These look exactly like little ice cream spoons.
RYAN!! Don't you!!! Was all I had to say.. or so I thought. 5 minutes later Ryan is sitting next to me, as I pot another plant & I hear "Mmmmm"
Andy went with my mom & I, to pick out plants & had the whole place all to himself:
Then for the rest of the evening, he insisted on keeping "his plant" with him. His plant was coresian mint, and when he fell asleep & I kissed him, he smelled of little boy & mint.
It was positively delightful ((mommy sigh))
We planted, and then as I said we went back for more, so now the garden is positively packed!
I'd like to say, for those of you who like myself, didn't know, bruseel sprouts are very misleading. Eight 2 inch sprouts? Pshh. The picture looked like these little bags of brussel sprouts just grow in pockets.
I planted all 8 of them in about a 1x2ft space, and hahahahaha! These things grow to be about 2 feet EACH! Look at this picture I found, which shows size reference.. EEK!!
The strawberries have been planted, I grew cilantro from seed. I collected last years cilantro seeds
(coriander) and managed to sprout them, twice, this season. I hope they live!
Last Spring, I spent a half of a day digging up forget me nots that were scattered all over, so that this Spring, when they came up, they would look like this:
Of course, one escaped me, and popped up right in the corner of the garden, and what do you know? It's pink!
Do you garden??
Do you have an indoor plant & thats it?
Or do you plant a vegetable garden every year?
What extent does your green thumb, go to?
