Yesterday morning, my mom and I got up bright and early in the cool, 62 degrees morning to finally plant our plants that had been sitting in those Lowe’s plastic bags for the past two weeks. Thank goodness they didn’t die! We have an assortment of green, red, and orange bell peppers, aloe vera plants, dill, cilantro, basil, lots of pink and purple and orange flowers, strawberries, tomatoes, red hot chile peppers that I picked out myself because nobody else wanted them, and chamomile that I planted from seeds. It was so fun and relaxing. Too bad I didn’t have a tree to plant for Earth Day, but I think I did good enough!
Who knew aloe vera plants spread like wildfire?! We started out with one and now we have about 8!
These were planted in a special strawberry pot with holes in the sides of it. But the first time I picked up the pot, full of dirt, by the holes, the top broke off from the bottom! Lesson learned.
You can make your own tea out of this!
The destination for most our flowers and other pretty plants.
Huzzah! The fruits of labor have finally been brought down to me from the Heavens!
A couple of weeks ago, I started growing a dill plant straight from the seed! I almost never start from a seed, and when I do, it usually doesn’t work. I’m so excited! I have a bunch of other seeds for different plants that I’m going to start to grow this afternoon. They’re easy things like other spices, microgreens, strawberries, and of course flooooooooowers! Starting a garden really makes it feel like Spring!
