Let's see, I think we planted our tomatoes and zucchini two weekends ago and this week I notice they have all taken some leaps in their growing process. I was a little nervous because this is the first year I planted our small garden in the front of our house and not the back. I'm very intimidated and completely overwhelmed with our backyard. We have our privacy back because after an entire year of not having a fence our block wall was completed this past January.
I thought I would plant a garden back there but as I took in the blank canvas of really hard clay like ground I just couldn't think of conquering it just yet. It's still dirt minus a tiny little square of baby grass motorcycle man planted. That part is actually pretty sweet.
I wasn't sure how the plants would do up front because the sun exposure time isn't as much but so far they seem to be doing just fine. The Italian tomatoes I started from seed even look to have some hope this year. Those seeds I have tried twice without success. I'm hoping this year is the year for the Italian tomatoes to grow into fruit. Below is their progress:)
This is how the zucchini is coming along (below)
Below are the carrots which get a lot of shade so we will see how that goes, I'll keep a watch and start to separate them and space them out once they grow a little taller in their tops.
Last are the indoor plants. One of Abbie's school mates gave her a sweet little mini rose growing kit. They were teeny tiny seeds, a cute little pink tin to plant them in. We did that and I had no idea one could grow roses from seeds. But looks like they are growing alright. The forget me nots are plugging along too. The little bokeh army man was found in the front garden while planting our spring garden. I just want to remind you that the plants need a few key ingredients, water and sun light of course but a little kind talk does them good. I did an experiment once with a good apple and bad apple, it was mind blowing. Since that experiment I realize talking to your plants is a good idea. They will grow better, promise.
