Well, here goes my first attempt at planting a garden from seeds!! Some months back when I decided to plant a garden, I asked my teenage boys to take an old tarp down the hill (to our only flat ground with sun) and lay it out with rocks to hold it down. We left the tarp there for about two months and it took care of killing all the weeds! Then the three of us dug up and turned over the soil and I used the trusty weasel to break apart the bigger chunks. Needless to say I was sore the next day but the boys were fine. Must be my age catching up with me...
I planted cucumbers, radishes, green beans, onions and lettuce from seeds.
Now, I have had these seeds since the previous summer as I had good intentions of doing it then. I had no idea if they would grow this year or not!!!
Well, take a look here for yourself!!! We have cute little green things popping up in abundance.
Guess it is time to "thin" them out! I wasn't sure how many would come up so I guess I may have been a little seed happy when planting in my very SMALL garden!!
I also bought some tomato plants as I needed some instant gratification in that garden!!
On a side note, across the driveway, I see my iris bulbs have come up and are blooming! Aren't they pretty with the dew on them????
And here we have the first bloom of our climbing clematis vine. I just love it when there is a drop of dew! Makes it look so fresh in the morning!
Stay tuned as I watch my garden grow! Where is Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary when I need her?????
I am linking my garden to Outdoor Wednesday over at A Southern Daydreamer to share with many others. Make sure to click back to view everyone's beautiful outdoors pictures on their blogs!
