April Garden Update

The garden is in full swing this month!  We are enjoying daily fresh radishes, lettuce & carrots!  We have green tomatoes on our plants, something that is somewhat of an accomplishment because I have horrible luck with growing tomatoes.

Early sunflowers & marigolds are blooming for our pollinators & we have been starting new seeds almost every chance we get.  Leeks are just sprouting & we are waiting on more basil, sunflowers & onions to sprout.

I walked to a local farmers market last week & came home with more than just fresh collard greens.  These herbs (basil & Vicky’s plant) followed me home as well. 🙂 We replanted them in these homemade chalkboard pots. The little gardeners loved helping me mark them. 🙂

Eggplant & green pepper plants are getting big in the garden & we look forward to their first blooms! Something has been munching on them a little but this is something that comes with sustainable gardening & I think they will be just fine.

Earlier this month we read a great post by The Gardening Mom on our Facebook feed about making a home for the frogs & toads in the garden!  We gave it a try last weekend & are still hoping for a new residence to move in! 🙂

Happy Gardening!!!

    1. No claim to the chalkboard idea. 😉 Lowe’s featured it in their magazine a few years ago. You can get chalkboard spray paint or regular chalkboard paint for the pots. The kids love to write on them & I like to use them for herbs.
