Alright, I’ve decided to turn My One Thing This Spring: Gardening, into a new Spring/Summer series. It occurred to me that I’ll have many more updates, which made making the community garden experience into a series an easy decision. Okay, here’s what’s new.
The plot is ready, and I’ve been continuing to work the soil, and have actually planted the first few seeds. A couple different varieties of peas. Delicious. Well, they will be eventually.
Here’s a couple pictures of those first budding peas.
Awesome. And, yep, the soil is dry, only on the top few layers though; and, the water at the community garden is now on, which is grand.
I’ve also planted seeds indoors. Many of them. 50 to be exact! Here are some of the herbs and veggies I’ve planted into an indoor greenhouse.
- Basil and Cilantro
- Mixed Hot Peppers
- Various Lettuce Varieties
I purchased this nifty little Green House at the local garden store for $20.
Here is what it looks like; and, here is what it looks like as the seeds begin to sprout.
Pretty cool, yes? Yes, I think so too.
Oh, and here is my latest addition. I bought these 4 beauties at the farmers market today.
I adore tomatoes. One of my favorites. Yum.
Sowing seeds directly into the ground, which will happen around May 4. We’re very close. Excited.
Alright, once the indoor seed starts and the tomatoes are transplanted, and I sow some more seeds directly into the ground, I’ll have another update.
Until then, enjoy the spring sun. Hopefully it is shining wherever you are. And, oh, before we go, how about a little Elfje on the sun to take us out. Yes? Okay, here we go.
Bright as a star
Taken into my being
Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone.
