So, back to my garden. Two springs ago I was telling Steve "next year, I"ll have a garden!" And then that spring came and went and we were still house hunting and I said "well at least I know next year I will for sure have a garden!" Shows how much I knew!
This year for my birthday Steve planned to buy me a small garden and help me set it up in a sunny corner of our porch.
We aren't totally finished with it yet, but so far I have some tomato plants (which just started budding some flowers!), some different kinds of lettuce, squash, celery, lavendar and rosemary. I'm hoping to get some more containers and plant spinach, carrots, and some grass for Caleb to play in (Korea doesn't have much grass) and if I can find basil plants already growing, I would love to have some basil (in the past I have not been able to grow basil from seeds for some reason, not sure why). I also have some flower seeds (Thanks Mom!) that I'm hoping to get planted soon too.
We'll see how my not-so-green-thumb does but it is fun to have some semblance of a "garden," even if it isn't exactly what I originally had in mind.
~ How does your garden grow?
~ What are you planting this year?
~ Any green-thumb readers that have some advice or tips for a newbie pot-gardener?
~ Any great recipes or "to-do's" with a lavendar plant? I'm really excited about it and it is doing great but trying to decide what to do with it now, besides smell it's deliciousness.
