What's sproutin' you ask? My garden! It's not even close to finished, but what has been planted is flourishing, even my garlic! Each year I try to plant something that I didn't the year prior and this year, the winner was garlic. I literally placed a garlic bulb an inch under the soil, watered it in the evening ever other day and two weeks later I have 4-6" shoots! Yeehaw! I love watching my garden grow!
This year I decided to invest in a raised garden bed and luckily Home Depot was having a sale and I had a $5 off coupon! Thank heavens for good deals. The kit was meant for a 4 foot by 4 foot square, but my yard doesn't allow for that very well considering I need an area with full sun. So, thinking outside the box, I made a rectangle using the wooden from from the raised garden bed, my fence and rocks!

So far I have planted sweet mint, basil, parsley, cilantro, a jalapeno pepper plant and 4 bulbs of garlic.
I don't have pictures of the garlic, but follow me on instagram @xsarexbearx and you'll be seeing them soon! I also just planted the basil this afternoon because my lovely best friend/neighbor/babysitter gave me a sweet basil plant over the weekend! Sweetness! I need to get some tomato plants this weekend and I'll probably grab a few more herbs and possibly another jalapeno pepper plant because we make a lot of salsa.
Opening day was the other weekend and I am kinda diggin this picture I took while I was there...
