Planting thoughts

| April 24, 2007 | 3 Comments

Thanks everyone for all the well wishes. It was wonderful to feel all the support. I really appreciate it.
Since the weather has finally improved, Will and I have been spending a ton of time outside. There’s a yard to beautify, a garden to prepare for planting, flower pots to ready … The list goes on and on. Plus there are tons of fun things for an almost-two-year-old to get into.

I am not sure what plant in my garden this year. I am tempted to do primarily flowers with a bit of herbs. Or another option is to just do flowers at home and take advantage of the garden plots at work (no kidding) to grow some vegetables.

But if I do that, then my black thumb will REALLY be on display. And everyone will know that the magic I can do in the kitchen doesn’t carry into the garden . . . sigh. Can I make my vegetables grow in public without withering away? At least the plots are fenced in, so critters won’t be a problem.

What are you planting this year?

    No plan for planting yet, but will be putting one together soon. So far we know we will do tomatoes. ;~)
    Will looks so adorable and so grown up in the photo. Almost 2. Sigh.
    Thanks for sharing!

    What a handsome young man Will is!!! That face! Makes me smile.

    I actually planted my first herb garden this weekend! I planted sage, cilantro, rosemary, Italian parsley, and banana peppers. For regular plants, begonias and Hens and Chicks won out. :) Hopefully I won’t kill them all.

    Tomatoes, hot peppers, sweet peppers, lettuces of many varieties – and I really want to do chick peas, but am intimidated, as well as blueberries, but am frightened of bears (my mom says they attract them).
