This garden is built on hardwork, perseverance, and lots of dog poo! 😂
I spend a lot of time in my garden. Over the years, I’ve learned to forget about selfish people, like my old ex who left to look a fool with a gimmicky life and fake personality. I learned to appreciate my friends for their truth and honesty (even if I don’t want to hear it). I learned to take advantage of every opportunity given to me, because I might never get that chance again. And I’ve learned that life moves forward, no matter how much I want it to stay in one spot.
My garden for the most part stays the same, but little changes come and go every year. It keeps it interesting, and I love it more and more every year. 😄😊
I’m a little late with my plantings this year. I got mostly everything in, but am going to wait on the tomatoes for another week, since it looks like the nights are still going to get a little chilly the next few days.
I’m not sure anyone can ever be whole again from separation from a loved one, but I can at least fill the void with plants and greenery 🙂
Hopefully it’s a nice summer and I can try some cucumbers again — I think I can get it this time!!
Pea & bean teepees
Kale, broccoli and lettuce
Rhubarb and strawberries!
Some spring bulbs poking through
New evergreens with a blackberry bush growing up the fence
Hydrangea is starting to bud
Cherry tree is still alive!
I’ve been away from my garden waaaay too long. I saw the very first blooms today, and plan on giving the garden way more attention and clean-up this year. If I don’t do it, no one else will! 😄🌱
It’s been awhile! Tooo much rain so far this year, and the temps are just starting to get nice and warm. I planted corn for the first time, and it seems to be doing ok. I don’t have any huge expectations, so we’ll see!! I planted a magnolia tree this year in the backyard, and the cherry tree from last year seems to be doing just fine so far. Yessss!!!!

Chives are starting to overtake this area….need to split again next year!
Lettuce to eat soon.
So, these are the last pictures I have from the 2014 season. A rainy day — but I’d take that over snow any day.
Haven’t had a chance to upload these from last year, so doing it now! Enjoy!! 🙂
It’s still chilly in the evenings, but I’ve had mostly everything undercover at night. The squirrels are my biggest problem!
