Unrelated: Who watched the Royal Wedding?
Me and the girls woke up early to see it this morning.
1) I really enjoyed that special girl bonding time, it was really sweet.
2) That wedding knocked my socks off. Wow, so much absolute romance and amazingness. I'm a little love dunk right now.
Anyway. Here's our garden this year.
After learning a few things last year I put my tomatoes in their own pots this year. I hadn't realized how big the got so they didn't allow for anything to grow next to them last year.
I went with one cherry tomato plant and one Roma tomato plant.
I found these obelisks at Farm and Fleet...I'm really happy to have found something size appropriate and lovely.
Next is my herb garden. Right now I have rosemary and basil from started plants. And I'm crossing my fingers for the seeds of l: Dill, purple basil, cilantro and flat parsley to sprout up some more.
Along the left of my trellis are pickling cucumbers. Along the right green beans (which I planted from seeds we harvested last year...feeling like a pro!) And carrots in front of that.
This year I'm giving the zucchini its own space and won't be killing it by stuffing it's leaves up into a trellis with novice inexperience.
I'm trying strawberries in baskets... so far some are hanging on...nigh have to buy more...
Over to the side I have some peppermint (I hear it's best contained so it doesn't take over.) And I need something to go in the empty pot.
We have more yard work planned but the garden is making me so happy! Plants are starting to be a big source of joy for me.
