It's The Little Things/ Garden Time

This weekend I planted my garden.
I could spend every day out there. Perfection is a cool summer morning with the sun coming up and the birds singing. Me pulling weeds, harvesting crops and watering.

It is my happy place.

Such truth in those words.

Here are a few pics from last years garden.

It felt great to get out there and get my hands dirty again. 

All winter long I have been looking out my kitchen window at my empty garden beds and it has been a bit depressing. To see plants living and growing out there again is awesome.

This years garden was a whole new exciting adventure. I grew all of my own plants, from seed. It all started back in February when my AWESOME husband built me this grow light table.

After months of growing I ended up with some amazingly healthy plants to plant. I am super proud but don't take much credit because I really just think it was a bit of beginners luck.

I can't wait to watch the growth and enjoy the harvest in the coming months. 

Here is where we started. Let's see how things change over the next few months. 

What color is your thumb?

  1. My thumb is not green....i can tell you that. But, I think it's cool that others enjoy gardening. :)

    1. Haha, I can't keep a house plant alive to save my life. So apparently I am selectively green?!

    1. Yes! I completely relate to that. The first year we moved in we couldn't have a garden because it was to late :(. But we did manage to plant some fall crops before the weather got to bad. Good luck in your search, I hope you find something great!
