Vegetable Garden: May Garden Update

by - 6/09/2020 12:00:00 AM

I'm so proud of myself for making time to garden this year. As prior stated, I had no intentions on gardening this year pre-pandemic, don't get me wrong. I absolutely love to garden, however, it can be really time-consuming, and takes a lot of time and effort. Last year, I barely harvested anything, due to my schedule. I was just so disappointed. The year prior, was my best year yet. I mentioned last week how I received a donation of plants. Which really kicked started my garden for this year. I planted a bunch of seeds in April. However, one of my little furry friends had other plans with the seeds.

A lot of the plants I started from seeds are just now sprouting. If you guys remember, during the last couple of months. I've only gone to the store once, I missed the opportunity in April to pick up a lot of my garden supplies. I went in May and my local Bj's were out of a lot of soil. I even called other locations, it was really hit or miss. I'm thankful that I did find a bag of the potting mix during my last shopping trip though.

All of the plants that were donated to me have been potted. I also started working on regrowing scaps and seeds. I started an avocado from a seed, and I'm super excited about the journey. I'm still learning about regrowing scraps, however, I will keep you guys updated.

Also, I really have to start working on my fall harvest plans in the coming weeks.

Thanks for stopping by!

How's your week going?

  2. I hope your vegetables continue to thrive! We sprouted some tomato seeds and pepper seeds, but when we planted them, something just bit the plants in half. It is very frustrating, especially since they didn't even eat the plants.
