Saturday Garden Journal

I have just two containers (two pictures of each). I’m not going to pretend I know what I’m doing. I haven’t read up on how to garden, at this point I don’t want to cause that sounds like more work. We’ll see how these plants do.

I’ve planted tons of tomatoes; I wasn’t sure if the seeds would grow (there wasn’t a percentage on the package of how many one can expect will grow), and sweet peas, cause I love their scent. I’ve also got rosemary, thyme, oregano going (how can a garden not have them?), and my one true joy are the strawberries. I used the whole packet just to make sure at least some seeds took. I really want homegrown strawberries. Also there are chives, green onions, lemon balm and sunflowers.

We’ve decided to stay with containers for growing them to maturity. It might be a little tough, but I’m certain we’ll make due 🙂

I’m joining with Ginny at Small Things in her garden journal; I’m hoping that I’ll be able to keep this going. Do you have anything growing this year?

Loving God through my family, friends, and interactions in my world.

    Fair play to you kiddo! I went nuts with my first ever garden last year – planted 12 brussels sprouts plants, 6 cabbage plants and 6 purple sprouting broccoli along with lettuce, sage, parsely, rosemary and a window box with 4 strawberry plants. We got a huuuuuuuge downpour about a week after and the only thing that survived was the strawberries and there were only 2 berries! Hopefully this year I have more luck. Thinking about doing more brussels sprouts and lettuce but in pots this time 🙂 Looking forwad to how your garden grows 🙂
