Garden Update – May Week One – Cut Flowers and Vegetable Garden Patch

I'm finally making progress! The frantic feeling that goes with trying to plant everything out into the garden has started to subside.

Winter Sowing Results Pt. 2 + Garden Update – Week 2 – April 2018

Finally! We finally had two days - count them, TWO - of beautiful weather. I'll admit, I was beginning to lose patience and faith in the fact that I would ever be able to finally transplant my snapdragons and lettuce into the garden - but I got it done! Hooray! Just wanted to quickly check…
