More growth!

Interestingly, these growths align with day 10.

In May (or maybe April…) Witchlette and I planted a number of bulbs. The flowers from one type of bulb have already bloomed and gone. 

The second type of bulb burst open this morning!

Don’t mind the weeds, I’m an expert at growing those!

In the back, our sunflowers are winding down and our watermelon has a baby fruit on the vine.

The fruit is all gbe way down there!

The baby carrots have all been picked, though they were all too bitter. We’ll try again next year!

Continuing growing

I’d say I’ve been rather successful as a first time potted plant grower. 

Witchlette’s Easter basket gifts of grow kits have exploded.

Some things I would do differently:

  • Put plants into bigger pots to begin with, now that I understand the spacing for root structures. 
  • Learn more about what plants need as far as sun and shade. This is quite foreign to me. The potato plant died almost as soon as it was moved to the back patio and I’ve killed two batches of basil plants. It may have also been the heat they were exposed to in conjunction with the extremely hot afternoon sun which the front of the house gets. 

My ultimate goal is to have a full garden to grow some fruits and veggies to supplement our usual intake. This was, for me, a successful year and has been a good start to many more years of growing in my gardening skills? <Wink wink garden pun>
