I thought after my outdoor inspiration post yesterday, I would share our outdoor progress.
I have really found joy in having a garden that actually has produced lettuce and veggies for our family.
Given that I am not typically a “green thumb”, I spent several hours reading and researching and planning our garden this year.
What I have realized is that having a garden is a lot of work!
I have learned how to weed, prune, and care for a growing garden ( as well as with plants in the yard) for the first time in my life.
Even though it was a lot more work than I expected, I am loving it! I have big plans to expand the garden for next year and maybe even experiment with some winter crops… we’ll see on that one
Without further babble, here is the photo update on our progress:
Maddox’s sunflowers are now MUCH taller than he is! Can you tell how stoked he was to come outside for a photo this morning??
Brayden’s brussel sprouts, the sprouts are coming!!
Our volunteer pumpkins… we didn’t plant those, but they popped up! I think they are pumpkins??
Squash and what’s left of the lettuce
And more tomatoes!
Another crazy volunteer pumpkin (?) that I am just letting grow… kinda purdy next to my patio
You see the sun shining?? It’s going to be a beautiful day!
How is your garden growing??
