The Garden

I have a container garden.  I chose containers due to the heavy rain we get during the summer 
months in the South.  Last year the rain ruined all my plants, so this year I took a different 
approach to gardening.  These are just some of the fruits, veggies and other plants that I am growing.

I love my peppers and my key limes!

The first tomato


Love it!
I can't wait to sink my teeth into this juicy plump tomato.

My little boy planted Sunflower Teddy Bear seeds this year and it's his absolute his favorite.

The lavender.  Got the seeds from my favorite place, Etsy!

What are you growing in your garden??


  1. Lovely, lovely garden you have there! If you ever do a post with gardening with your kiddos come on over and join 'kinderGARDENS'
    at my blog...we have 40 participants and at the end of summer we are having a professional judging to see who wins some great prizes for the best use of children in the garden, lol!

    BTW...your magnets rock! I'm off to see how many I can fit on my frig/white board/freezer! Kim

  2. I planted Lavender, but it never flowered :-( I love it, but it just grew about 3 inches tall and stayed green. Do you have any suggestions?

    Our other herbs did really well; sage, dill, rosemary and basil. But by far our cukes did the best. We also have carrots, broccoli and tomatoes!

  3. Hello,

    I just had to ask, how did you set up the tabs below your title? I would like to do that myself. Thanks. Love your garden too.


  4. Lavender plants tolerate many growing conditions, but thrive in warm, well drained soil. The soil should be well worked, well drained and loose enough to dig your bare hands in easily. Some sand and well rotted compost will get the plant off to a good start. A lean soil will encourage a higher concentration of oils. An alkaline and especially a chalky soil will enhance lavender's fragrance.

  5. You have got a nice garden out there. I think a connection with plants means a connection with the nature itself.

  6. I'm always so impressed by gardens, since I can't seem to grow anything myself.
