my life in lists // what will my garden grow?

Another inspiration from 30 Days of Lists…but I made my own list that wasn’t in their categories…I’m such a rebel.

Let’s see if I can successfully grow potatoes and artichokes this year. It will be my first time.

What’s in your garden?

      Yay, thanks Kristy! I sure will link up the cards if I can make them happen. I think there’s supposed to be a rainy day here on Thursday so it would be a perfect time for a fun inside project.

      Glad you like my lists, I am trying to do a bunch at once, then post one each week. I have some fun ones coming up and some I already posted. Check ’em out!

      Thanks for coming over… =) See ya soon!

    hello, I’m loving your garden. I can’t believe you have time for a garden on top of all your wonderful crafty projects. My husband actually does our garden. He loves his garden as much as I do my scrapping. We plant potatoes, strawberries, peppers, the best corn on the cob ( our neighbors all wait for ours to come in) tomatoes, onions ( the best in the neighborhood), watermelon, cucumber and this year for something new for me and my healthy eating squash and zuccini. So I will send good wishes your way for a good crop in your garden and you can send some my way for ours to do good also. i love your doodled page of your garden, my husband does that too. He gets so excited, stands there now looking at where it’s going to go and imagines it. His dream is to retire asap and work on gardening all day everyday. Thanks for visiting my blog, so nice to get comments from you. Have a good day.

      Hi there, thanks for stopping by. They did great! Nothing more than a few bowlfulls the first season but they were sweet. I lost a few plants that winter but the remaining ones flourished again. Lost a few more the next winter again and will replant them all thi spring. They are an easy and inexpensive solution!

    Just found your blog through an old friend who pinned your strawberry cinder block wall on Pinterest. Wondering how your potatoes grew? I’m gonna try them this year. You asked what’s in our garden: corn, celery, sunflowers, broccoli, green beans, cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, yellow squash, zucchini, tomatoes, basil, cilantro, radishes, lettuce, onions, garlic, spearmint, blueberries, raspberries, and grapes. TWENTY-FIVE strawberry plants and a beautiful dahlia died at the hands of the evil ground squirrels who live here. (…but I have plans for those pesky critters now) Our mini-orchard is producing peaches, plums, apricots, apples, cherries, and olives. And since I can’t stand to let anything go to waste I had to plant all the old seed packets I found when we moved…so we are anticipating cosmos, shasta daisies, black eyed susans, bachelor buttons, zinnias, and asters. Lavender, roses, geraniums, primrose, calla lilies, and lilacs round out this year’s additions to the full landscape in our HUGE back yard. It was waist high with weeds when we moved in last August. It took us four months just to take back the dirt. Thank God we have a growing season of 295 days here so we can still enjoy the fruits of our labors!

      Try a yellow strawberry. Don’t know the name of the plant but one of my fellow Master Gardeners in Southern California swears by this berry because, she says, pests aren’t attracted to their color.

    Hi,
    Love your plan too…we just moved and have a blank slate for our garden this year. I just subscribed and am looking forward to all of your ideas…(crafting too!)
    Thanks,
    Lori

      Hi Lori, thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment! So glad you like it here, and I do hope you stay inspired. Congrats on your new home and have fun in the garden! What a treat to have a blank slate.

      hey andrea, cool name! πŸ˜‰
      my area is small, only about 6 ft wide by 3 feet deep at the largest part of the curve. needless to say i didn’t get all of those veggies into my garden that year, would have been a great harvest!
      thank so much for stopping by to leave a comment!

    May I use a picture you have on Pinterest of a garden set in concrete blocks for Women, Infants and Children display? It would be for 2 months in Adams and Juneau Counties Wisconsin.
