Last month I posted about our potted garden and plants for the Spring/Summer season. Since then many of our potted plants have been flourishing and are in need of larger pots, and I need to revamp the area by our maples since a local rabbit decided to snack on my flowers (I say local, but the rabbit could be from out of town. I haven’t personally spoken to it). I took two trips, one to a local garden nursery, and the other to Lowe’s to pick up items. Here’s a little bit more about our garden this season!
So first up, here are some of our plants that needed re-potting with my materials to do so:
I am not a super experienced gardener, but the most important items that I use are gardening gloves (I have two sets in case I soak one set watering), a small trowel, a larger shovel, and small pruning shears to remove dead items, stems, etc. I also keep a bucket handy to put in loose dirt and other organic waste, and then also a garbage bag to toss trash items like plastic wrap and small disposable pots.
After a lot of moving around, here are the plants in their new homes:
The romaine lettuce:
The tomato plant:
Which already has a new little tomato growing:
And I cannot really do a post without an update on our acorn trees:
Then I moved on to our maple area where as you can see was looking rough:
It looks better already! I love being able to have this area outside that I can sit and look at the plants, and the boys and I can grow fresh vegetables and herbs throughout the year. My goal is to eventually have a raised garden bed in the backyard, but that is a goal for another year.
