Welcome to my garden!
Each spring I try to grow veggies from seed, but they never seem to do well
and I end up going to the local nursery for plants.
This year I thought I'd try again.
I planted the seeds while it was still cool out, but brought the planters inside
when there were frost warnings.
Usually the seedlings get this far and then die off.
I planted a few favorites, parsley, cilantro, lettuce and of course, basil.
So far, so good!
Everything seems to be coming along nicely.
Last night my daughter made salsa with the first sprigs of cilantro and parsley.
We also picked the first lettuce for tonight's salad.
The flower garden is doing well too.
Last year we had a giant oak fall on the hill and wipe out a huge
portion of the garden.
Luckily, many perennials were spared and came back this spring.
Hopefully the bare spots will fill in with pachysandra and creeping myrtle.
Of course, there's the climbing 4th of July Rose on the garden gate.
So pretty with it's red and white blooms each year.
I was surprised to see it blooming already!
We have had some hot days and much needed rain,
so it seems like the garden got a jump start this year.
I'm happy, because one of my favorite places is my garden.
Hope you enjoyed the little tour.
Thanks for stopping by and happy gardening!
