Still dealing with the chaos of moving and remodeling, but one thing that has drastically changed and is coming along nicely is the garden. We went from a jungle of weeds over 6ft to a thriving vegetable garden. I haven’t focused on flowers that much yet , that will come next year, right now it’s more simple quick growing flowers to help keep bees in the yard while the vegetables blossom. Thankfully the hard work paid off, I went from no bees to a healthy steady buzzing environment.
It’s always a great idea to plant flowers between vegetables to help ensure pollination. Any flowers would do really, the ones I like best are poppies, cosmos, marigolds and zinnia’s. They all grow pretty fast and have many blossoms to one plant. Not only that but they won’t disrupt your other plants, easy to grow and low maintenance if any at all. They bring some color to the garden as well, but really who doesn’t like a pretty flower? So what’s stopping you?
On to the massive project of the garden.
Once I started weeding
As of yesterday . All together it’s been one month, from weeding to planting.
There is a Peach Tree at the left, it needs a lot of help, since I know nothing on fruit trees, I’m researching before messing with it. For now though I planted dill and other plants to help boost the soil around it. If anyone knows anything about Peach Trees, send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂 I’ll update after researching a bit.
A little time and dedication to any area can go from jungle weeds to a thriving garden, whether vegetables or flowers. I only added some kitchen scraps, epson salt and two bags of fertilizer to the entire garden. Through winter I’ll plant dandelions to recycle the dirt. ( Remember my huge posts on these amazing power plants? Check it out, they are helpful! ) All in all so far, this is looking like it will be one of my most successful years gardening! Check back soon to see how it’s going.
