Let’s Plant Some Sweet Peas (Lathyrus odoratus)and See What Happens!

Let’s Plant Some Sweet Peas (Lathyrus odoratus)and See What Happens!

Hi Lovelies, First and foremost, let’s be clear, we’re talking ornamental sweet peas (Lathyrus odoratus). NOT edible “sweet” peas,as they are sometimes called by veggie loving gardeners. These, in fact, are toxic. So, don’t eat them. Okay? K, thanx. Sweet peas and I have a complicated […]

February Week 4 Update – Germination Celebration, lol.

Hi Lovelies, The week 4 update is a little early, but I probably won’t have internet access for the next few days – so I wanted to get these posted now! All of the seedlings below have been planted using the winter sowing method in […]

Garden Planning (The Abridged Version)

Garden Planning (The Abridged Version)

Hi Lovelies,

I’m so in the mood to plant things! In fact, resisting the urge to plant everything is really difficult. You might think I’m obsessed – I actually probably am. Any how, I wanted to quickly share this video from YouTube here for a couple reasons:

  1. There’s a lot going on and I’m honestly not quite sure if I’ll be able to explain the things I want to explain well. I’m going off like 30 minutes of sleep right now and I’m not sure how coherent a post would be.
  2. When the “seed germination planting season or whatever” is over and I know how successful I was, I’m going to write a post outlining every single variety and I planted, when I planted it, and whether or not it was successful. There aren’t enough clear lists on the internet of successes and failures in the garden. I just want to go somewhere online and see a timeline – “I live in ____. I planted ____ on ____ 2016. It germinated on _____ 2016. I stuck it in the ground in the garden on _____ 2016.” I’m really going to try to make that happen.

The video below is really basic, but it might help – especially if you’re a little new to trying new things. Heck, even I’m trying new things (as always, lol). I learn something new everyday, and I’m totally thankful for that. Anywho, the objective of the video was to describe the “categories” that I put my seeds into when I start thinking about garden planning and what needs to be started when.

If you do watch, let me know in the comments if it was helpful. I’m so tired I’m really doubting myself. If you don’t feel like watching a video of me rambling about seeds, no worries – I totally understand. I’d still love it if you left a comment 🙂 Feel free to talk about whatever, is anything blooming where you live yet?

Preparing Winter Sowing Containers – Ready to Plant!

Preparing Winter Sowing Containers – Ready to Plant!

Hi Lovelies, It’s January, and for me that means something very important! It’s time to winter sow some annuals (and perennials!). The discovery of winter sowing was a complete game-changer for me. You see, my tiny little house is a dark wasteland, and the last […]
