Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! ☘
Are you celebrating? We’re not planning on doing much. We are seeing lots of green, though! Our garden is coming to life!!
Some things are doing a little bit better than others, but I’m still super excited about how things are going so far!
We’ve got pumpkins, daisies, peppers, and an avocado tree started inside. At one point we had lettuce as well, but that all died. Luckily we still have some lettuce seeds, so we’re going to try that again once it gets warmer and we can plant it outside.
Outside we have broccoli, cauliflower, leeks, onions, a peach tree, and a blueberry bush. So far I haven’t seen any leeks or onions but the broccoli and cauliflower are starting to come up, the peach tree is flowering, and the blueberry bush is starting to grow leaves!!
So you can probably tell I’m a little bit excited about all of this. But honestly, what’s more exciting than planting little seeds/plants, then watching them grow and produce food, then harvesting said food and eating it?!
Well I think the whole process is super cool. Plus homegrown ALWAYS tastes better.
Pretty soon we’re going to get corn, tomatoes, zucchini, potatoes, carrots, and a few other things going. I’m super stoked about that! Homegrown tomatoes and zucchini are definitely my favorite!
WAIT! I lied! Peaches are my favorite and I absolutely CANNOT wait for those!
Do you have a green thumb?
Would you rather grow flowers or fruits and veggies? (I like flowers, but I definitely like growing things I can eat)
What’s your favorite fruit/vegetable?
