Life in the Garden

This years garden is doing well. Some things better than expected, and others are not doing at all.  We got some good showers so May flowers should be right around the corner…

Here’s a look at the garden for the end of April.

See how your Violas grow...

I bought these (red and pink) plants for valentines and they are on their 2nd round of blossoms, super hardy and productive for those who have trouble growing.

Here is a start of snow peas and kale, and one lonely sunflower.

Trying out the celery trick, cut of the bottom 2 inches of a bunch, soak in water overnight, then plant.

This plant doesn't bloom but it looks like it does when it grows new leaves.

Super easy to grow as it is difficult to overwater them. Great beginner plant as they grow fast and you get the satisfaction of results without the wait, lets you see you are growing something.

Since my patio garden area is so small I maximize my space but doubling up on plants.  This was a mixed bag of flowers that I added to a plant I am taking care of for my BFF after her house fire last summer.

lots of new leaves… but I can’t wait till the flowers come in, they are truly beautiful

besthouseplant

Easiest houseplant every to grow, its really hard to over water, and a little drought doesn’t hurt them either. Sunshine or shade it only changes the colors of the leaves from dark green (shade) to pale yellow (full sun). I can’t wait till its super long and I can get it to wrap around the patio.
