So, I finally got around to planting some things in my garden! Last year, we planted a few different things to pretty great success.. so this year we’re (mostly) planting different things.
Here are a few of the things I have in my garden:
MINT!! We had a mint plant last year, and it was AWESOME! I loved being able to have mojitos whenever we wanted. We had them quite a bit, and used a lot of our mint. I hope that this mint plant thrives like it did last year. We were even able to share a bit with our friends so they could re-plant it in their garden. It didn’t survive the winter because we had it in a planter box and the area it was planted in froze. I’m already excited about this one though.
This year we’re trying our hands at a tomato plant! We’ll see if we get anything. If we do, great. If we don’t.. well, that’s ok, too! It’s a little bit of a learning curve. Considering I killed all the plants we had the first summer in the house, that should tell you about the state of my thumb (aka not so green) but we figured we’d give it a go. Wish us luck with these, I’ve heard that tomatoes are a little more difficult.
A hanging plant, we received this as a gift for our 4th anniversary, because apparently the gift for your fourth year of marriage is a plant. Really crossing my fingers that I can keep this one alive, because the hanging plants we had our first year of living in the house were the first to go. Did you know that they need to be watered daily?? I didn’t. I learned that after we received this plant. I’m trying my best to actually water them though, so we’ll see 😉
Marigolds and Alyssums! So far, these are looking a little worse for wear. I’ve been watering them every day and I hope I can turn it around.. but we’ll see. Taking care of plants is HARD!!
Not pictured: BEE plants! I signed up for free seeds from a couple of places that are trying to save the bees. I’ve planted the seeds, and have been watering the area lots.. so hopefully something will sprout up soon and I’ll be able to share those pictures, too.
What are you planting in your garden this year?
