Thyme Spent In The Garden
I took this photo this past weekend because I loved the way the sky looked. The spring and fall sky share similar characteristics and I always love the contrast of a dark sky against the wood line.
I'm going to update you on my little greenhouse venture and I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised.
I also purchased arugula, spinach, eggplant, squash, beans, yummy peppers, jalapeno peppers, gourmet rainbow peppers and sweet pea seeds. I'm considering trying to grow broccoli as well.
Now onto my flower starters. I spend lots of money each spring filling hanging baskets and window boxes with my local nursery purchases. While that's good for the local nurseries it's not great for our pocketbook. However I believe that it's well worth the money spent but I thought I'd try my hand at starting a few flower varieties myself.
I also saved seeds from my vines last year.
Ashland Strawberry Faire. Our Community Garden is taking root this year and we are raising money for things like compost and wood to build raised beds. A portion of the garden will be used to grow fresh produce for our area's Food Bank. We will be selling plants and baked goods so come out and see us on June 4th.
I love working with plants. I'm still learning but what better way to learn than hands-on. If you're considering starting some of your own plants go for it! It is very gratifying to watch them sprout.
Thanks for stopping by Blue Sky Confections!
