How does your garden grow?

How does your garden grow?
Ours grows very slowly.
I could have bought herbs a bit more advanced but then we would have missed all the fun!
We decided to start from scratch.
Seeds!
Along with the basil, mint, and catnip
I thought it would be fun to grow some grass.
Why is it grass grows so fast?
I had to give it a cutting already.
Yes....It smelled like spring!
Nothing better than the smell of fresh cut grass
Madison also has a little garden growing as well.
To be quite honest..
hers looks better...ha!
I'm sure we will be visiting the fruit and veggie stand soon!
Do you have garden?

Nothing sings spring like a
Mossy covered pot.
Cant wait to show you how I dressed this pot of newly planted Rosemary up.
It's hanging from the top of the wire "thingamabob".
"Happy Gardening"!
xoxo Susie~

  2. Gardening takes a super amount of patience..

    Grass definitely grows so much faster!

    But all this garding is fun, isn't it? I haven't done any gardening since I was younger and used to help out my grandpa!

  5. I love the grass in the galvanized containers. I've tried my hand at growing herbs in a window sill for a couple of years now and it's hit or miss for me. Last year, I tried a vegetable garden using the square foot method and boy was it bad! I think I was over zealous in what plants I could grow. This year, I'm trying it again and am sticking to tomatoes, peppers, herbs and flowers.

  7. I have tulips right now on my window sill! I also have some green beans sprouting in a cup(daughter's Sunday School class started them). Always try to get a garden growing outside! Can't wait already have the seeds! I like your grass seed idea-very Spring!

    Thanks for sharing,

  9. Looking good Susie. Where did you find the grass seed? I've always wanted to try the grass...it looks so cute in those galvanized pots!

  10. I always grow my gardens from seed! It's way more fun! I love your cute pots and markers! I've got 5 huge trays of seeds a simmering. Now I've just got to finish making my grow boxes that they will be going in (this week and weekends project). I move a lot and so I've finally decided to make up boxes that I will move along with me. I'm tired of leaving my gardens behind and starting from scratch! Though I just checked on my garden from my last house and it is growing strong. There are tomato plants in it that I planted from seed 3 YEARS AGO! Only in AZ could they live through the Winters! Ha. And I came home with a dozen tomatoes that were perfectly ripe right then (it was 2 weeks ago that I did this). I just LOVE gardening! Good luck with yours!

  12. Last year we planted four herb plants, a red bell pepper plant, a tomato plant and we did some hanging flowers.... Every last plant was dead by August... We like to call our balcony "the place where plants come to die". Needless to say, we will try try again soon!
    Where did you get your herb markers? They are adorable!

  16. I've been growing only rosemary, basil, and tomatoes, but I've decided that I want more! There's just nothing like homegrown produce. And the farmers' markets around here are so very expensive. So I'm thinking that "homegrown" really needs to become grown right here at home!

    What kind of grass are you growing? It looks delightful. :)

  17. I am going to miss gardening this season! We will be "in between" so I won't even be deck gardening. I will just have to check in with you and enjoy your progress toiling in the soil.

  18. Doing tomatos this year from seed and peppers too. Always love a fresh salad! Your photos are very inspiring!

  19. I certainly do NOT cringe when I read your posts. Good content is way more important than good grammar. :)

    It does seem like there are a number of people who struggle with grammar, so maybe I can help them a little. That would make me happy.

    Have a great day!

  21. I want a garden, but I have a black tumb. My grandmother still plants and works a garden with enough food for 10 families, so I do get to enjoy fresh food.Come to think of it maybe life is perfect the way it is. So do plant a garden?

  25. We grow our garden from both seeds and plants,this way our harvest isn't coming in all at once.We use raised beds, regular tilled ground garden areas and Topsy Turvy planters.I can hardly wait to get my hands in the dirt,it has been a cold snowy winter here in WNC.
