Happy Memorial Day
Good morning:) I’m sitting here at work eating my choco-peanutty oats and drinking iced coffee.
(Old fashioned oats, 1 tsp DARK cocoa powder, 1 tsp peanut flour, chia seeds, cinnamon, coconut flakes, blueberries, and a big glob of peanut butter!! YUM!!)
For my entire life my mom has grown a large vegetable garden in our backyard.
So of course since i won’t be home this summer, i had to grow my own! I started all my plants out as little seedlings.
Once they got big enough i dug up a patch for a garden. Seriously tough work since the ground was baked solid! After soaking it with the hose i was able to dig up the grass and loosen the soil. Since the ground is super sandy (the Intercoastal is at the end of my block…) i added plenty of organic topsoil. I also have a compost pile that i totally plan on bringing with me when i move;) I planted and organized everything and the next morning when i went out to look at my garden it had been dug up!! Dirt and little plants were everywhere:(:(:(:( My roommates dog had been attracted by the nice cool dirt and jumped in! So after quiet a few tears, my boyfriend bought me new plants and they were put in. Well, since seeds got scattered all over the place, I have had to do quite a bit of transplanting when green bean plants were sprouting next to the tomatoes and zuccini was coming up in between the peppers!! But its all good now, aside from having to do a little bit of weeding when i get home:)
And here is the picture i am most excited for:
I HAVE TOMATOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!! I love tomatoes and i am so so so so so so excited:) I bought four plants, one died, then i planted a rotten tomato and a plant came up. And then i was admiring my neighbors garden and he gave me 3 heirloom tomato plants!!!! He doesn’t know what kind or color they are but i really don’t care as long as they are tomatoes:):)
Well thats my garden! Do you have one? What fruit/veggie are you most excited for this summer?
Oh and happy memorial day!! Dont forget to thank a vet! My whole family has a huge bbq every memorial day and this is only the second time I’ve missed it:(:( So after thanking a vet, go hug your family!
