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??
