Sunday Musings

Hi! Welcome back! It's been almost two weeks since my last post! Yikes! Did not mean to let it go so long, but truthfully, I have been going through some stuff, and needed to step away. Haven't had a lot of time to blog, and I wasn't sure what I wanted to blog.

You might have noticed some changes around here. I've had the blog over a year, and decided to change up the look a little bit. Give Jane Austen a little something summery. My garden's gotten so huge, I thought I could jazz dedicate the new backdrop to how great it looks!
I have FIVE Cabbage plants. I keep looking for the Cabbage Patch Kids

The first Eggplant flower. There are about four more flowers now!

I accidentally let a sweet potato grow vines, so now they're buried in the yard.

Yellow tomatoes! I hope they do well! I want them to do well so badly!
My love of kale might really be tested with how much of it I'm getting this cool, wet summer.

Zucchini Blossoms!

Strawberry flowers! I might get strawberries yet this summer!
I was looking back at the early pictures of my garden, and the amount that it's grown is absolutely amazing. My lackluster gardening efforts the last two years weren't for nothing. And we have a perfect backyard for planting. My plants are getting adequate sun, and with the soaker hose, it's easier to water them.

I've also been attempting to compost this year. Bought a $5 bin at Target, drilled some holes, dump my compostable items in it and give it a flip every few days. I'm thinking of getting two more bins as this one gets full, to have a three bin system that some people swear by.

Gardening has been an amazing stress reliever the last few weeks. Sometimes, when you butt heads with someone, there's nothing better than getting your hands into the dirt while belting a Sutton Foster song. 

I think my plants like the showtunes. I know I do. ;-)

So, not too exciting around here, lately, but hopefully I'll be able to use the zucchini blossoms for This Recipe. I'm looking forward to having fresh veggies. I've enjoyed the lettuce and kale so far, but I'm looking forward to everything that's in my garden.
