Me me me! I’m a bit addicted to being outside. I’d like to plant wildflower, bulb flowers, and fruits/veggies in the garden plots this year. I’ve also been relandscaping the monstrous backyard since last spring. 🙂

Lovely flowers to this.

Sigh. I have a loooooooot of work to do.

Cosmos are one of my favorites. I can pretty much throw the seeds on the ground and get blooms for months. I haven’t tried bulbs yet, and I think I’ve missed the season for them, but they’re definitely on my to-do list! 🙂

We own a condo with a lovely little porch, i bought the kind of planters that go over the wall, so we have an entire planter of basil, one of bouganvilla, one of chili peppers, and another of seasonal flowers :o) I LOVE gardening!

I want to, and right now I’m planning on planting mesclun, spinach, squash, and ??? I forgot the fourth one, and maybe zucchini, if I can find some seeds.

My mom wants me to plant EVERYTHING so she can come take it, but I’m trying to only plant things that I know I will use.

Boyfriend or Best Friend doesn’t like tomatoes, is iffy on cucumbers, and half of the things I’d want to grow, he doesn’t really care for.  

My goal for February is to build something to scare off the deer, birds, and rodents that frequent my yard.  I’m thinking of making something solar powered, a radio and strobe light that go off when something triggers a sensor.  I met a man who said he left a radio on all night and that kept them away, but I think they would get used to a radio being left on all night.

I can’t wait to start my balcony garden again! Fiance surprised me with a big planter and a bunch of herbs and strawberry plants last year and I loved it. This year I have a meyer lemon waiting to get back outside, and I might pick up a second planter for more herbs or maybe some flowers.

We closed in late May and my dad came by to help us plant a garden in August. So far we have  enjoyed rosemary, parsley, tomatos, eggplant, bell pepper, and basil. I’ve killed off the roses though.  Never had much luck with strawberries in the past. Is there some kind of secrets you guys like? I was given a worm bin last month. I hope they stay alive!

We moved in to our house and it has 5 gardens and bushes to trim all over the property! We decided that this year we are getting rid of 2 gardens that take up too much of our yard and the wood around them was never treated so it’s warped and has lots of ants and nasty spiders in them and in general falling apart. Fiance is going to build me a new smaller raised garden for veggies since for the last 2 years we plant to fill up the old garden and things go to waste Undecided

But I do love planting my flowers and plants out front and we have lovely flowers in 2 gardens that come up each year w/out any tending on our end. I do want to plant sunflower seeds this year since I have been wanting to do that for 2 years. Here is our garden that will be no more. And the small front mound of flowers (this was the first year, last year it had much more elaborate flowers!)

I am!! (hopefully!)

We just moved in and I’m hoping to have a fence installed this spring. Then I would love to have a veggie garden in the back with tomatoes, peppers, basil, and peas!
