Little things

It’s my first year growing a garden on my own. You can call me a dork, but it’s the little things that excite me. 🙂

Little things like…
Green beans sprouting:

Zucchini sprouting:

And the first red tomato of the season:

I just created a new category “gardening” as I suspect I’ll have more to say on this topic in the future. I’m enjoying the experience so far. 🙂

  1. It is my first year gardening too. I get excited over little things too. I am only doing flowers this year, next year I am hoping to do a veggie garden. Congratulations yours looks fantastic.

  2. Ooooo, what fun! Wait until the first set of true leaves form … especially on the zucchini. Beautiful! Congrats on the sprouting of your green food thumb!!

  3. You go girrrlll! Fantastic….!!

    My hubby is into gardening BIG TIME….but this year we had to make due with container gardening….nevertheless…we have had around 20 tomatoes so far…the other critters that share our backyard with us have had their share too!

  4. This is exactly how I felt last year when I had my first container garden in my very own back yard. I planted herbs and two tomato plants. Unfortunately, the tomatoes didn’t survive the birds, but the herbs did really well and I enjoyed them most of the summer.

    Can’t wait to hear more about your gardening adventures!

  5. Its not dorky at all! I’ve been butterfly gardening for a few years now and still get all excited about it. And this year I decided to grow butternut squash and pumpkins too, so now I’m excited about that. If we had a bigger yard I don’t think I’d have any problem filling the whole thing up with a big garden!

  6. I’m so happy that your garden is working out. I can’t wait until I can start my own garden it was fun with my family as a kid.

  7. Well, if you are dorky, then I am a full-fledged Gardening Geek. I just moved into my boyfriend’s house and was blessed with a complete blank slate to go gardening wild on. He was expecting some annuals at the front of the house. What he got was almost the entire perimeter of his 1/3 acre property transformed into gardens. Mind you, the planting is fairly sparse, but that just leaves room to grow (pun intended *smile*).

    Every single night, both of us transition from work to home mode by going ‘walk about’ with a glass of wine in hand, checking out the day’s new growth.



  8. Thanks for joining the 350 Challenge, that’s our badge!

    Also…I’m planting for the first time too, my coworker constructed a small rooftop-garden at our office! We’re big proponents of local pesticide-free produce.

    I know its a little obsessive, but I make no less than 3 visits a day to my tomatoes, just to see if their stakes are still upright and if there are any new flowers…
