I spent part of Sunday afternoon doing a little gardening. I'm not any sort of master gardener or even a good gardener. I'm still a novice and I'm still learning.
As I walked from front yard to back, working on various project, it struck me...
I have plants. I have things growing in dirt that I planted. And most of them are living and thriving.
I've made some mistakes. I planted way too many brussels sprouts and put them all way too close together. I did some transplanting yesterday from very crowded pot to backyard veggie garden.
I've made some discoveries. Keeping potted strawberries on the front porch makes for an easy and inviting munchie for critters. There was a gorgeous shaped green strawberry when I left for church and it was gone when I got home. So I moved the pot from front porch to the railing of the back deck- which is a good 7 feet off the ground. Not impenetrable but certainly more of a challenge.
I've made some progress- things are growing and looking big and healthy.
I even have things I can almost pick! My blackberries are going to be ripe pretty soon and I have my second banana pepper…
I still have this mystery plant that Teagan brought home… it almost looks like it’s going to vine upward so I wonder if I need to get a little trellis or something? Beans of some sort?
And I’m always inspired by Flartus and Miss Chef and their gardening success!
Anyone else gardening? I’m going to toss a little blog hoppy linky thing down there… share your gardening posts!
