I hope everyone is having a great week so far…I’m so glad that tomorrow’s Friday! I have a lot of exciting things coming up including my cousin’s bridal shower (I’m the maid-well, matron-of honor), and we’re going camping Easter weekend as well! Although not as exciting, I had a very productive weekend this past week. We’ve been wanting to spruce up our backyard with flowers and a new flower bed…and I finally got my veggies!
First, I started by doing a couple of herbs in a pot. My rosemary and oregano are are still thriving in the ground where hubby planted them so I kept them there. I planted basil, thyme, and chives.
Last year my basil did really well, so I’m determined to work on a good pesto recipe . Thyme is a favorite of mine, and this is my first time growing chives.
I did a lot of gardening by myself-especially making another bed for my new hibiscus plants. Talk about a workout! But everything looks so great.
I planted a slew of veggies (and fruits!) in three different beds. Here’s a list of my loot:
Bed #1: yellow squash, zucchini, okra
Bed #2: red and green bell peppers, green beans (seeds)
Bed #3: eggplant, corn, tomato, watermelon
Many of these plants are new to me, so I really have to up my farming skills haha. I really slacked off last season so I’m ready to work now!
And while I was doing my gardening, I decided to turn my compost…look what I found!
Worms! As I’m learning more and more about composting, I found out that worms are a good thing They help to break down the materials added to the compost. I have quite a few wiggling around in there.
So wish me luck this gardening season! As always, I’ll be keeping ya’ll updated.
Do you have a veggie or herb garden this year? If so, what are you growing?
