My Growing Garden

My garden IS growing. I’m so happy. Watching piles of dirt being hauled away, to the roots and weeds over taking a large space. Clearing the space to only bury some seeds below ground in hopes something will occur.

Finally, not only are blossoms on my tomatoes and my seeds sprouted and growing wildly, but we got garden mulch to finish the look and bring everything together so beautifully.

I can’t explain the immense joy I take from watching my garden grow. From seeds to branches, it’s so fun to see that this is something I started from the ground up (literally)!

My green beans are the only seeds I soaked for 24 hours before planting. By doing so, I noticed an incredible difference in growth. They grew quickly and abundantly.

My cilantro is doing way better in the ground than the potted cilantro.

My squash not only has grown but is forming it’s leaves for production. :)

I planted watermelon a little bit later than the rest, it popped through within 3 days.

Kale was one of the first ones I planted. It’s growing quite well. I can’t wait for it to begin producing and feeding our bellies.

I also planted radishes, carrots, green bell peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers. Cucumbers are the only ones that did not survive. I will be attempting again this week as nothing tastes as good as a fresh cucumber. I bought the pre-started plant rather then starting from seeds as I was skeptical of whether I would receive an wealth from my garden. I will buy all produce in seeds next year.

I’ve become addicted to my garden. :)
