A Garden Update....

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

My garden is in full bloom and I'm so excited to share everything with you!

The one raised garden bed is going to be all lettuce.   But in the bigger bed I have a small section for Kale.   The Kale is shooting up like a charm and I just need to thin the seedlings (which I did right after I took this photo).

Last year I struggled with a zucchini plant that took over my entire garden bed so I'm doing containers this year. I just took two plastic storage bins and drilled holes in the bottom for drainage.  That way if the leaves get way too big I can still move these to another part of the yard so that there's lots of room for them to grow!

So I totally cheated. I tried to grow lettuce and peppers in my mini green house inside but it just didn't work.   So I went to the local nursery and bought several pepper plants. I did have 2 of my pepper seedlings that made it so I am potting them outside as well.

Here's what the garden area of my yard looks like. It's nice because everything sits against the house so it's warmer and more protected from the elements.

I also cheated and got tomato plants!  I have roma and juliet. I'm so excited!

The one weekend I decided to expand the stone area around the garden beds so I had more room to walk.  It was a lot of work to expand it because it involved buying the stone bags and dumping them all out and pushing them all around and digging up the grass and disposing of it.  ***Insert muscle flex***

Here are my romaine lettuces!

There is spinach and kale in this garden bed along with Sugar Snap Peas!

What are you planting in YOUR garden this year?
