Watch it grow

My passion for gardening came from my father and my papaw. It was always something that not only brought us together, but it seemed to stop time from passing.

I would venture to say that the simplicity of plants and gardening is what draws people to it. Unlike other hobbies, gardening does not require much thought. It’s slow-paced, simple, and therapeutic.

My Husband and I bought our home in February of 2014. We’ve had a garden each year we have lived here, but this year our vision has finally came through in the space.

As most of you know, we have a four-year-old son, Lucas. We try to do our best with keeping Lucas interested and engaged in nature, which is not always easy in our technologically, fast paced world. Gnomes help with that.

Each one of our garden beds is the home of a Gnome.

‘Horrible mom moment’ – I don’t remember what Lucas named this guy, but he is the keeper of garden bed no. 1

This year bed no. 1 contains yellow and white onions, radishes, and romaine lettuce.

This year bed no. 2 contains cabbage, brussel sprouts, and broccoli.

Personally, this past week has been quite overwhelming for me. A lot of things in my life have changed, good and bad, and our garden has really been a place of solitude for me.

There’s a peace in weeding between plants and watering in the late afternoon. It’s something that the three of us enjoy doing together, which is what makes it the most special.

I plan to keep you guys updated as we make changes to our garden and as our plants continue to thrive. I also plan to enter some vegetables in the Hartford Fair this year, and I will keep you up to date with that adventure as well.

Thank you guys for the support of my blog. I am so thankful that God has motived me to create this space where I can be myself. It’s such a release for me and at times like right now, I can truly see how much it helps me.
