How does your #garden grow? It’s alive!!!

Posted June 12, 2015 by Michelle in How my garden grows?, Uncategorized / 11 Comments

Garden GrowSo I was planning to do this post last week and then we got a lot of rain so I wanted to wait to see how everything was growing. So far we are doing pretty good. I have only lost one plant but I think it was doomed from the beginning. According to my daughter you can just buy cucumbers at the store so we are letting that plant go. πŸ˜‰

I made a Pinterest board that has tips and gardening ideas on it, I only have two pins at the moment but I will be filling it up soon, so feel free to follow if you would like. I am also waiting a little bit before I start posting recipes or anything else because I want to use the veggies I get to make the recipes. I do have a very good tomato recipe to share with you next post. That one can use store bought tomatoes but fresh tomatoes are much better.

So lets see how my garden is growing, shall we πŸ™‚

Next week I will post a picture of the entire garden. It just looks so great and I can’t wait for everything to start really growing. The next couple of days is suppose to be VERY Hot so I am hoping to be able to keep up with them so they don’t get dried out. I would hate to lose anymore plants.
Thanks for stopping by to see how my garden is growing!
I hope you have an amazing day!

  1. My nannys roses grow every year, that plant has been there forever and if I ever move I am determine to take it with me. I can’t leave them there.

    I want fresh garden tomatoes too, my daughter never had them from a garden, shes going to be so spoiled πŸ™‚

    The mint you can do a lot with, mostly on desserts or you can place them in a jug of water and have mint water with cucumbers and lemon, it’s very refreshing and good for your insides πŸ™‚ also you can freeze them in ice cubes with raspberries or strawberries and place them in a glass of water. You can also boil it in water for a mint tea. I plan to freeze the leaves so I can have them for the winter as well.

  2. Wheat beautiful roses! And I love all your plants. I have a good sized tomato that I’m pretty sure will always be green. I’m so impatient for my first fresh tomato! What do you do with your mint? I have a couple of plants but I never know what to do with it all.

  3. I need to check out the pinterest, I need all the tips I can get…lol. πŸ™‚ So you have strawberries so I have a question…do you know if it’s true that you don’t pick he strawberries the first year they will grow more the next year? Cause that is what I have been told.

  4. Oh wow everything has grown a lot since the first update! This strawberries look delicious! And those roses are so pretty! I am hoping to grow some roses if we ever have a garden. Our tomato plants are growing like crazy with the warm weather we have, I really have to make sure to watter them every day. Looking forward to your whole garden picture next week πŸ™‚

    • They are really big and I noticed today that the plants have more flowers and a lot more veggies are growing. The soil is like super soil since my grandparents treated it so good plants always grow so big. I need to talk to my dad because the beans are really starting to be ready to climb.

      They need to be watered a lot since it’s so hot here this week. I do it at night since the droplets of water on the leaves will burn them in the sun.

  5. Your strawberries are so cute! πŸ˜€

    I lost a plant this week, too! My third round of baby bok choy got wiped out by the heat on Tuesday (103!!!!!). It was all pretty and green, then BAM, gray, dry and crispy! At least I have the majority of them in the house and they’re doing great!

    And my potatoes are growing like crazy, so that’s exciting! I may have to move them though, since it’s so hot. But we’ll see. The leaves are still green and plump for now.

    • They are super sweet!

      It has been super hot here also trying to keep them as wet as possible at night so in the morning they don’t dry out but the leaves are getting a little brown. I pray for rain this weekend but not till monday so I might have to water them twice a day.

  6. I love oregano, I can almost smell it from here ! Peppermint does grow fast and exponentially, if it’s not stuck into a pot, you might get a garden full of mint, lol ! Beautiful (and yummy) pictures, Michelle, thanks for sharing, you must be proud of your garden πŸ™‚
