A week or so ago, Kara and I headed to Home Depot with a gift card we got for Christmas and got most of the stuff we needed to start our garden. We're doing a little container garden on our very tiny patio.
Monday after I got off work, I got hit by a wave of motivation and decided to get started planting stuff! Then I decided to take a bunch of pictures, and well here they are.
First I got everything planted. There are strawberry transplants in the hanging basket (that's on the ground for now due to wind!), the yellow pot is cilantro, and the tan pot is spinach.
I started peppers indoors. We LOVE peppers and eat a lot of them, so this is the most important one for us. Peppers, however, need a warm climate to grow...so for now they are in the hot water heater closet. Pardon the junk!
I've started projects like this before, and let's just say I'm a little forgetful. I start off all gung ho but then everything falls apart. Follow through is not my strong point. So I decided to make a lot of little notes to remind me to water them.
Apparently this one seems a little naughty. I guess the word garden on the bathroom mirror reminds Kara of lady garden? Lol, I'm sure our visitors will love it.
I also made a couple notes about the light in the closet...
Then I made lists of the growing requirements and stuff for all the vegetables I'm growing. Referencing seed packets/books the entire time would make me annoyed. This way it's all in one spot.
At the end, I was left with a mess....but hey, that's to be expected!
Hopefully soon I'll have pictures of my little seedlings to share.
