Our garden is growing! Finally, after a few months of worrying over our ‘babies’, we are seeing some progress! We tried to start everything from seed this year but unfortunately not everything took. This last week we purchased lettuce and celery starts at the farmers’ market near us to supplement our tomatoes, snap peas, pole beans, cucumbers, carrots and other vegetables. Here are a few pics of the progress; forgive the poor photography skills!
There are more but many, like the lettuce and pole beans, are not ready for their photo op yet.
On to the beautiful things that come up without any effort on our part!
And lastly, my frugal porch decor. I spent $14 on annuals this week at Fred Meyer and still have half a flat of petunias to use up. I made three hanging baskets (using baskets and soil I already had) and filled four or five pots as well as a planter in the front flower bed.
