This year my husband cleared a garden space for me, I don’t know the dimensions, will ask him and post it here later. The grandkidlets are staying temporarily with us and took over the newly turned garden space into their own personal sandbox.
I asked my husband to buy some more potting soil, and he obliged me by purchasing 10 bags plus the 3 bags of topsoil I already had. Was enough to partially fill the newly claimed back garden space.
With such a late start, I didn’t think seeds would work out, so bought some starter vegetables and planted those. Okay, so now I have a tiny little wee garden woo hoo… and I thought I’d keep a journal of things that go wrong, and things that go right and things I learn along the way.
What I learned from last year, planting seeds is that it’s not wise to use cheap seeds, cause they are exactly that..cheap and don’t grow too well. So I’ll upgrade to better quality seeds. I did save the seeds from my mammoth russian sunflowers last year and planted them again this year. They seem to be sprouting again for 2nd year ..woo hoo for me.
We bought this house and the layout and decor just doesn’t fit well with my retro pink effort, but I haven’t the heart yet to give it up. So sis brought me an addition for the ‘pink’.
