Watch My Garden Growing

My gardening attempts in a new environment.

Okay, I Cheated … So Sue Me.

I haven’t watered my garden in DAYS!!! It has rained for three days straight. I was able to use MIracle Gro last weekend before the rain came down and the plants are showing growth. My tomatoes have doubles, seeds have germinated and everything looks great. I wish it were just a little warmer for my green peppers, though.


We did not even water before taking a trip because we knew it was going to rain. I still did not water when we returned from our little day-trip because, yep, it had rained while we were gone and the morning we returned.

I also cheated by posting my pictures to Pinterest. I don’t like the WordPress app for posting multiple pictures because I have to provide a text post as well for each one instead of just a picture. Sure, looks like I am a posting goddess but it is too time consuming, really. I have better things to do with my time … like not water my garden. 🙂


Here is the Pinterest link:

Things are going well. No slugs in the garden, even though it has been raining so much. I am hoping my liberal use of eggshells has helped with that. No major pests or insects yet. We had tomato hornworms last year so I am keeping a lookout for them this year. A few spiders, but none doing plant damage. I hope they stay away this year. Not likely.

Well, almost time to get up and get ready for work so I had better finish my porridge. Have a happy day!

The right side of the bed is blooming! Bulbs are popping up all over. Some vinca as well. We will see what happens now that the weather has warmed up.

Hubby is using the crepe myrtle limbs to build a fence to keep the dogs and other critter out of the beds here.

We are using old deck boards (non treated) to build the end of the box up and make a potato bed. We have the wheat straw!
