Green Thumbs

Connor has been talking about growing vegetables for a long time now, possibly since before we even got our house or had a place to grow them. I have been wanting to start a garden for a little bit too, mostly because after buying a few plants, I have noticed how much more welcoming our home feels having them around. I have been excited for spring to come so we can create a little outdoor paradise in our small but functional back patio. Last week was in the high 70s, so over the weekend we started planting seedlings that we will eventually transplant to our outdoor space. That is, if they grow.

Connor planted tomatoes and peppers. We also bought one cheater plant of cucumbers that comes in a ready-to-plant pod, in case all else fails. I picked up two different kinds of lavender. I like plants that look a little more wild and natural, so I really hope to have these sprouting up all over soon! Eye have a few more seed packets waiting for a later date to be planted, including baby sunflowers that grow only 4′-0″, and Connor has onions. If all goes well, we might expand our collection, but it seems like a good variety to start.

Hopefully the great weather sticks around so we can continue spending time outside and enjoying the outdoors!
