Garden Update: May 9

Hello! I don't know about you guys but I am so happy that spring is here (finally)! After all the rain last weekend, I finally was able to get outside on Monday and plant the rest of my plants. I also went to a plant sale a few weeks ago and got several things that I still wanted like cucumbers, peppers and some herbs.

Chocolate Mint.

Cilantro from seed. 

Thai basil from seed. These plants got submerged last week when I left them outside overnight and it rained all night. I actually cried when I found them in the morning. But Chris saved them and they perked right back up. 


Roma Tomatoes. 

Rosemary that I planted last year that is finally showing some new growth. 



Stevia that overwintered from last year. I was so excited to see it shoot up this year!

Habanero pepper. 


Mexican Sage.

Green onions that overwintered. I dug up three big bulbs and split them up and spread them throughout the garden bed. 

Snap peas!

Under the snap peas I planted 3 cucumber plants that I bought. I think that the peas will die back by the time the cucumbers take off. 

Not enough to make a meal, but delicious nonetheless.  

Here is my newly expanded garden. On the right I dug up those 3 beds, topped it with mulch, and planted my tomatillos and tomatoes. In the beds I have 2 pepper plants, all my herbs, green onions, lettuce, and greens. 

I also finished another semester at school! I was ready to be done and it feels good to have a break from studying all the time :). Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
