My First Real Garden!!!


I am so sorry for being MIA for so long. I no longer have internet so it is hard to do many posts.

This past weekend I started my seeds indoors to prepare for my first real outdoor garden! I know its a bit early, but the temperatures here have been above normal. Needless to say, gardening has been on my mind!

At our new rental house that we moved into in December, we have a pool, which has raised garden beds along one side and a large garden area behind it. Whether or not the pool is usable, I don’t know. What I do know is that I have plenty of space to finally have the garden I have dreamed of!

I recently went to Walmart to get a few supplies to start my seeds. I got a mini greenhouse tray with 72 little spots for me to plant seeds. I decided to start with mostly herbs and a few flowers. So far I have planted basil, oregano, thyme, lavender, spinach, romaine lettuce, 2 kinds of zinnias, astors and marigolds.

It is a humble start to my hopefully abundant garden this spring and summer!

    We love romaine, too, but it takes longer for it to grow up. So happy you are being a gardener!You know leaf lettuce grows very fast, about the same as spinach. I am so excited for you.
