Garden Party 2015

I think it's time to get this blog going again. Spring is all about beginnings, right? So here we are, early April, and I am ready to garden!

Two weekends ago, my dad and Justin build a raised bed for me. I am so grateful that they support my pursuits, and are willing to put in the time and energy it takes to build the structure that will hug my dear plants all through the spring, summer, and fall. I won't lie: I had no interest in taking part in the construction. I wish I did, but i don't. I just want to do the planting, the caring, and the harvesting of my dear fruits and veggies. I am lucky to be surrounded by talented people who are willing to help me with my projects!

Little Gray Beastie made the final inspection.

I was still a little nervous about planting right away, but I ordered some seeds and planned out my space. I also purchased a grow lamp to get some seedlings going indoors.

One week ago, I planted my indoor tray with seeds... now, that tray is exploding with green! I am so excited! I will wait until the seedlings are a little larger before planting, but I sowed some seeds directly into the raised bed today. I still need to plant the sunflowers, but this project is moving along just fine, and I am happy with what this garden newbie has done so far.

Here's to new beginnings!
