Well the garden has been really fun so far! Aside from a watering issue in the beginning (as in I was drowning the cucumbers!) I wasn’t sure that I would enjoy gardening as much as I am but let me tell you, it’s been amazing to put in so much work and really see the results! We have many large cucumbers and tomatoes, the herbs are really flourishing and since we decided to throw some garlic in the mix it’s grown a ton! Our strawberries really haven’t done much more after the initial couple which has been sad but we’ll see how the season goes. I love going out there everyday seeing what’s new and spending time weeding and watering. The boys LOVE seeing things grow and watching it all change! Just in this short time we’ve been able to really see how different everything is. On top of that my love of plants and gardening has expanded past the little boxed garden we have, I have planted so many other things as well! We have planted lilies as well so I’m excited to see how those come in next year! They survived the transplant and are flowering which is amazing! I’ve really been able to learn a lot about flowers and plants and just the general aspect of nature and it’s been really calming in a way. I’ve also been able to spend time with my mother in law who really loves plants and gardening! She lives in an apartment so she doesn’t have a place to plant…well she does now! We have endless planting area that we have created! We are calling it the infirmary because she has brought plants over that we’ve nursed back to health as well as plants she has found to see how well they’d grow!
Incase you have forgotten what our garden looked like before- here are some pictures for comparison…then and now! Not to mention we were planting in winter hats and now you break a sweat just being out there taking out weeds!
