The Joys of Spring

When Spring arrives, I become a ghost, and with good reason. Over the last 2 months all I’ve been doing is planting, planting, and more planting. Everything from tomatoes to basil to marigolds. The pros of planting your own food and focusing on gardening definitely out weigh the cons of not posting things on here. Now, all I have to do is wait and let everything grow, with some weeding in between. It’s awesome and exciting to watch everything you plant grow!

 

 

Seeds and Sprouts

I have sprouts! I’m so excited! I planted kale, purple peppers, lavender, and sage last week in a seed starter tray and the kale has popped out. I also planted peas, cabbage, broccoli, and spinach outside. They like the cold, so they should live through the changing weather of early Spring, but we’ll see how it turns out in the next two weeks when the frost monsters start going away. It’s been a little chilly and rainy, so I haven’t really done so much in the past week, except the planting I did on Saturday. It was chilly that day too. My mom and I ended up cleaning our garden boxes outside and that’s where we planted the peas and all the other cold loving vegetables.
