We had a sunny day here in Tennessee so the girls and I decided to go out and explore. We just moved to a new place so I've been pondering spots for a garden this year.
I had thought that this spot was going to be perfect. My dad laid it out when he moved here but after a failed gardening attempt that first year (neighborhood dogs destroyed it) he filled it with rocks. Perhaps next year I'll get all of those cleared out but for now, I think I'll keep looking.
We found a little patch of buttercups across the road so of course we had to go check them out.
Photo ops abounded, its nice to get outside. I think we were all getting a little cabin fever.
I didn't get very much accomplished as far as planning but I did get a few ideas on what I'm going to do with at least some of the seeds that came in the mail this week. I'm so ready to get planting! I hope that you will follow my Gardening Journal this year to see how it goes.
I got this great set of sets from Annie's Heirloom Seeds. They included their Sunflower Collection and Southern Tomato Collection as well as a select few others like Boothby's Blonde Cucumber and Sugar Baby Watermelon. I'm planning to do a sunflower house for the girls to play in.
And from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds I got this set of different types of salad greens along with some heirloom turnips and radishes. I can't wait to see how the Radish Pink Beauty turns out. They also included some Pepper Cress which I had never heard of but it sounds really interesting and the website says it will be ready two weeks after planting!
