Okay, just a quick update today. In the last 10 days, things have grown quickly! I really think that the homemade compost packed a punch and is helping my little babies grow even more. I made my own bug repellent because I didn’t want to buy any harsh chemicals to keep little friends away.… Read More The Gardening Chronicles – May 20th 2020
May 12th – a shit ton of spinach, baby greens, and kale (I had about half of this for lunch this day and stored the rest for later in the week) May 14th – 2 zucchini and 1 squash (this was the first harvest of zucchini and squash, yay! I gave it to my… Read More May Harvests!
The homemade compost was finally ready and I used it in the garden about a week ago, but I forgot to document it because I was way to freaking excited! I mean, I made my OWN compost for the garden. Real farmer talk y’all. It smelled sweet, which I wasn’t expecting, and it wasn’t sticky… Read More The Gardening Chronicles – May 10th 2020
There’s nothing crazy going on in the garden today. I was able to harvest a lot of herbs, kale and spinach. The basil is growing and beginning to flower. This is the first time I’ve ever seen basil flowers, they smell amazing. Tiny jalapeno sprouts have popped up, which is surprising because I thought they… Read More The Gardening Chronicles – May 1st 2020
Our garden is flourishing! I was worried about the aloe because it started turning brown after a few days at home but the base is green now, yay!

He has a beautiful garden in his back yard and has started giving me tips to help my little garden thrive. I’m pretty sure he is a wizard because his green onions are as wide… Read More The Gardening Chronicles – April 21st 2020
My little babies are growing. I am so proud of myself for successfully tending to a garden (so far). I added a few cinder blocks to the edge of the garden to enclose the little patch of aloe that I planted. The mini white roses and marigolds give some color to the aloe bed. I… Read More The Gardening Chronicles – April 11th, 2020
We have plants y’all! Quick updates – The spinach, tomatoes, and baby tomatoes are sprouting. I am worried that the spinach seeds may be planted too close together, so we’ll see how they grow. The potatoes have erupted like crazy! I’ve added more compost and soil to their mounds. Once our homemade compost is ready… Read More The Gardening Chronicles – April 4th 2020, we have plants y’all!
Two weeks have passed since we planted our garden. Spring break is over but we are now in quarantine, which means we have a lot of extra time on our hands. So, I decided to expand our garden to four more pallets… the more the merrier right? It started with potatoes. Our neighbor had half… Read More The Gardening Chronicles – March 27th 2020
It’s spring break and the project the girls chose was to start a garden. A fucking garden. I do not have a green thumb. I never have. The only plant I’ve been able to keep alive for a while is a pothos and even that ended up dying after about a year or two. And… Read More The Gardening Chronicles – The Beginning, March 14th 2020
