My Hillside Garden: May Update
My garden is growing things, you guys! Or, I guess you could say…things are growing in my garden. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to do it, but so far so good!
I’ve been working on it every chance I get. Actually, I’ve even updated it more since these pictures were taken.
The stairs are coming along. I reassembled the top half, but I still need to dig out the bottom of the hill so the bottom half sits at the right angle. I guess I also have to put some concrete down there so it’s safe too. Once I get the stairs settled, I’m going to move the bits of concrete that are currently around them, and put prettier rocks in their place, like the ones I have around the garden boxes. I can’t believe I found all of those in the yard! I haven’t had to buy any decorative rocks!
The photos with the popsicle sticks are the most recent. I found these craft sticks earlier in the week at a thrift store, so I decided to use them to make labels for the garden boxes. I took some ink and some stamps I have in my scrapbooking stash, and got to work! I was so sad to discover that my “O” is missing from one of my sets, and had to use an “O” from another set. It’s not perfect, but it works, and it was easier than remaking all of them!
My tomatoes and onions are doing well, and potatoes have since sprouted! Once I made the labels for the boxes, I planted the rest of my seeds. I had given up on my indoor sprouts, but I think a couple are starting to pop through the dirt now! I’m curious to see if they get big enough to allow me to transport them.
My neighbor said that some kind of bug went after her zucchini plants last year, and wrecked her whole garden, so I’m putting mine in that big pot off to the side. I figured it would be easier to make a cover for that little guy than all of the beds. We’ll see if it’s big enough to grow stuff!
I can’t wait until my garden starts producing food!
