Memorial Weekend Gardening

So I've decided to start a blog.  I guess my fb page has become a blog of sorts.  I like to cook, bake, garden, craft, and travel... among other things... and that's what I usually post about on fb.

As this weekend was memorial day, I feel it would be most appropriate to blog about something that a lot of people do over this first weekend of summer... gardening!  My little garden started about a month ago when my wonderful boyfriend started it with lots of sunflowers, sugar snap peas, green beans, and tomatoes.  I've been adding more flowers and decorating with my garden gnomes.  Here's my newest little friend that my mama sent me last week... how sweet is he?!?

This weekend, I added some cucumbers, melons, corn, carrots, and radishes.  Our little yard is covered in gravel... no grass and not much dirt for planting, so we've decided to do a container garden.  We found these big felt grow pots and they're working out great!  Since we put potting soil in there, I know everything is in quality soil with lots of nutrients.  Here's the first section of our garden, growing strong!  Check out the tipi of poles our sugar snap peas and green beans are climbing up!

And my first sunflowers started blooming too!

Here's the newest addition to the garden.  I built a trellis for the cucumbers out of a piece of white trellising that I found and two garden poles.  Cable zip ties were very handy in helping keep all our trellising together.

Hope you enjoy looking at my garden!
