Rain Saves Money, Works For Me

While the garden is continuing to grow, I get a break from having to manually water it with the hose today because it is finally raining. The weather man has been “promising” rain in the forecast all week but today is actually¬†the first significant amount we’ve gotten so I get to stay in and watch the rain feed the garden.

Growth continues

While watering the garden this morning, I noticed the Dill is up as well as the Cilantro. Also the tomato plant is flowering already. The green beans, well they’re growing like crazy.¬†

Won’t be long before we’re enjoying fresh herbs and vegetables!

Seeds Turning to Sprouts

It’s been a week and already the green beans have sprouted. I guess that’s why I like them. they taste good and they grow just as well. Not sure if it was the couple of heavy rain storms we had or just my green thumb, but I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing and hope that the snake keeps the pests away!

Garden Guardian

I stepped out to water the garden this morning and as soon as I walked around the corner I met this little (?) guy with a surprise!

I thought about moving him but read that they are good for keeping pests away. After I went to put the camera away, he was gone. I guess his short period of sunning was over. Looks like I’ll have to be a bit more careful when working around the plants when they mature.

Home Grown is How We Roll

A little late as usual, but not terribly late to start this year’s garden.

I went to the home improvement store and picked up some seeds and seedlings. This year’s garden will be sporting Tomatoes, Banana Peppers, Basil, Cilantro, Dill and Green Beans.

While prepping the soil for planting, I dug up what appeared to be Sweet Potatoes from last year’s garden that I somehow missed. So, I made room for those too.

Got everything planted just in time too, as the rain started to pour right when I got the seeds in the ground. Let’s hope that’s a good sign!
