Ok, so I’m sure you’ve noticed by now that I never finished my Fall Gardening series. Well… that’s because, sadly, none of my plants made it. So I’m giving it another try this spring and summer. This is a big project because I actually want to turn my small courtyard into a colorful garden where I’ll grow my veggies, herbs, and flowers. Eventually I want this place to be a relaxing oasis where I can enjoy a meal, or a lovely visit with a friend. And since it’s right outside my kitchen, it’s a convenient spot to grow my herbs and veggies.
Instead of starting from seeds, I decided to purchase seedlings… I wanted to give my plants a greater chance of survival this time. I planted my herbs and veggies in containers using organic soil.
A grouping of big and small plantings are great way to camouflage garden hoses and other unsightly items.
Like I said, it’s a big project and it’s a work in progress. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. I just hope my plants survive this time. Wish me luck!
