And now for a real post- My Garden!

Sadly I live in an apartment without sufficient light to grow much of anything so a few months ago I asked my parents if I could plant some green beans and a tomato plant in their yard. They took to the idea of a garden right away and started to make grand plans. At first I was freaking out about the garden idea escalating into this huge project for I feared it wouldn’t be ready in time to plant anything and that I wouldn’t be able to devote enough time and energy for something so big. However, in the end we were able to make 8 garden boxes, each 4 feet by 8 feet, and put up a fence in time for planting. Now I’m actually really looking forward to having so much space to grow veggies. I guess things worked out pretty well even though I was worried.

Look at the photos of my lovely garden!

It’s definitely a good amount of room for a first time gardener!

So far I’ve planted chard, lettuce, beets, broccoli, radishes and Brussels sprouts. The radishes are by far doing the best and unfortunately the broccoli is practically non-existent.

Here’s a picture of the radishes from a week or two ago.

And here’s a beet plant.

Indoors I’ve got some tomato and pepper plants started. They’ll go in the ground soon.

Stay tuned for many more updates from the garden.


  1. Haha awesome. Cute background by the way. Although it took me forever it figure out that that girl is SITTING on a mushroom! I kept wondering why her dress had feet coming out of it- hahah!

  2. Thanks. I think I can see that now, haha. Does your computer cut off part of the background? Can you see the bird on the left? For some reason it doesn't seem to be showing the entire background on some computers and I don't know why that is.

  3. Your garden is beautiful! I'm so jealous!

  4. Yea, I can see the bird on the left. But my fav part is probably the little hedgehog-- so cute!
