Our First Garden

Garden | Part 1

June 4, 2014 0 Comments
This is our first attempt at growing our own garden.
We are pretty excited about the entire process
and we’ve been working hard at building the boxes, preparing the soil,
creating tomato cages, and putting up our trellis.
Our peas, basil, zucchini, yellow squash, watermelons, and gourds are doing excellent!
We also have a herb garden we are starting from seed.

The tomatoes we bought from a heirloom garden store back in April.
They’ve been doing okay, but we’ve hoping that with some good fertilizer
applied this weekend will perk them up.
Despite their slow start, they do have some tomatoes starting to grow.





I'm Rose. Nice to meet you! :) I'm a Southern transplant from the Northeast. I have two fur baby pups, Pippa and Watson, and the best partner a girl could ever ask for, Paul. I'm a believer of making the most of every moment. As much as I might try to slow down, busy seems to me my word. I'm a busy person, with a busy mind, and a ever growing list of things to do, places to go, books to read, recipes to make, and things to learn! I started this blog in the winter of 2013 as a way to allow family and friends {800+ miles away} to be a part of our lives. It's also served as a creative outlet for me to share projects, photos, travel, passions, thoughts, and a couple recipes. Being a first time home owner, we've been on a quest to transform our cookie cutter house into a home. ❤ I hope you enjoy this creative space.
