Today Hubby was accompanied by Witchlette to the craft store. While there, Witchlette, still on a kick from Litha, saw Fae houses on sale and insisted on getting one for the Fae friends who share our dwelling.

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>
