It's a'Sproutin'

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!
This picture was taken around 6/7pm and there is still some light on the garden.
So far I have planted sweet mint, basil, parsley, cilantro, a jalapeno pepper plant and 4 bulbs of garlic.

Jalapeno
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...


Much love.
