2013 Garden Week 7: Growing

The outdoor seeds we planted and bulbs are happily growing with the warm and rainy weather we’ve had. It seems like April Showers will bring May flowers/salads 🙂 Here’s a little photo tour

Even the nectarine tree is flowering.


You can see all the seedlings popping up right in a row! 




The tater tower has sprouts juuuust popping out.





And even more importantly, I’ll have Lilacs in a few weeks! Last year we only had one shrub with purple flowers, but John planted two more at the end of season so we will have more blooms soon. The name of the ones he planted are Miss Kim Lilacs! Clearly meant to be.




And in other news, We filled up the rest of the bed with soil. John brought home something like 30 – 40lb bags in his truck. A storm was rolling in soon so I abandoned all heels and strapped on my sneaks for emergency bag transportation and spreading of soil. We were certainly working as a team! lol




There’s not much else to report on my end other than I did manage to re-paint our shutters over the weekend as well. I like the new look though I will admit I should’ve waited until afternoon to paint as the sun would’ve been on me, instead of just clouds and wind.


Next week I’ll be using my hydroponics kit to grow herbs indoors!  Have you ever grown plants hydroponically (is that even a word?)?
