What's New in the Garden...Since Yesterday!
When I come home from work in the evening I like to take a stroll through my garden. I find it relaxing and peaceful and fun. I say that as if I actually had a large garden to spend time walking through -- my garden area consists of a path about 20 feet long, leading from the back door of our garage to our deck behind the house, with perennials on one side and a vegetable plot on the other. But, I examine my flowers and my vegetables to see how things are growing, etc. and can easily spend a considerable amount of time out there. I was about to head out the back door tonight when Tom asked where I was going. I told him and asked if he wanted to look at the garden with me. He replied that he had just seen it...like yesterday. Had anything changed since yesterday? I told him I'd report back.
Indeed, much has changed since yesterday! That's the amazing thing about plants. They can grow so fast (though mine always seem to be off to a slow start...), and change literally overnight. Here's a photo summary of changes in my garden...since yesterday.
|I thinned out my lettuce because it was all growing too close together;|
I ended up with a nice bowl full of baby salad greens!
|My potato plants just about doubled in size!|
|One more asparagus plant is poking through the ground. Now I know that|
9 out of my ten crowns I planted are actually growing! (BTW, I have no clue
if this is what my asparagus is supposed to look like at this point!)
|The first flowers appeared on my pea plants!|
|My carrot plants have grown -- must've been the rain!|
|The beans have officially sprouted. Can't wait for green beans!|
|My first blue delphinium flowers have bloomed!|
This was our wedding flower, along with white daisies.
|And just a glance at the gardens from the back corner of my veggie plot.|
Hi there! My name is Dana and I live in West Michigan with my husband, Tom and our dog Happy Gilmore. I created this space as a place to share the things I learn along this journey I call life. I work in marketing and I'm a sort of Jane of All Trades, interested in all things nature, gardening, cooking, exploring and learning new things. This blog is a conglomeration of my interests, hobbies, life and life lessons. Thanks for stopping by!
