I have always dreamed of having a fresh herb bed in the yard. This is the year I’m crushing my goals, and so guess what? I’ve got one!
Thanks, Mr. Awesome!
The basil is doing exceptionally well.
Besides eating it by the handful, which is simply *delicious*, what would you do with it?
My dad gave us some Canna bulbs to plant and they’re looking good! It’s so fun to see the new growth. I love their deep color.
I only planted flowers in the flower bed. That’s genius, huh? ha! I used a super random assortment of seeds that I impulse bought at every store I could this spring, bulbs I bought years ago and forgot about, and transplanted flowers from our yard (they were taking over our raspberries).
Here is my pro tip: If it’s cheap and produces a flower, plant it.
I felt like a free-spirited barefoot hippie gardener.
The flower bed has been untouched long enough that everything is really growing and the flowers are easy to identify.
I thought I hit the jackpot on some type of flower, as it is taking over the whole bed. It turns out after posting about it on IG it’s clearly a weed. A super invasive weed that I’d go pluck right now if it wasn’t 1:00 AM! I’m so thankful to have plant people in my Instagram tribe!
Isn’t this so green, full, and healthy-looking? It’s too bad it’s a weed! Oh, and I really hope those bugs are gone by the time I go to rip these suckers out tomorrow! I am not fascinated by bugs at all.
PS. My plant-based eating and intermittent fasting habits have me down 15lbs. I know it’s only a number, but it’s so good to get my strength back post birthing babies, and dropping some poundage in the process feels good. Yes, my baby is 3. Don’t say nothin’ about it, K? 😉
I love you guys!
