Need help with your garden plot? Check out The Art of Gardening: Building Your Soil by Susan Vinskofski
I had a broken old red and white enamel double boiler pot that was the first ever honey-infusing pot that I used for Pixie’s Pocket. I’ve been hanging on to it because I couldn’t bear to let it go. I finally decided to repurpose it as planters so that I don’t have to throw them away and can still gaze lovingly upon them! The interior pot has Garden Sage and the exterior pot has Mountain Mint planted in it, and I hope they grow strong this year.
You’ll notice in the gallery above that the kitchen garden is becoming literal in its theme. I have old forks and broken ceramics and other unusable kitchen gear being repurposed as planters or decor. It will eventually look rather like a chaotic tea party out there!
A spare cement pot that grew spurge and other weeds beautifully last year now contains a handful of Calendula seeds. Some of the cinderblocks around the greenhouse now contain potting soil and Zinnia seeds!
We have plans for a new garden bed to eventually house the tomatoes and peppers and peas, but we haven’t gotten it set nor filled yet. We are als0 a bit late to get potatoes in, but we’re going to build a few tire towers with some potato starts that we got from Sow True Seed.
On the sad side of the inventory front, I killed the Rosemary and I’m not sure if the Feverfew will bounce back. My indoor plants fared terribly – I even killed a spider plant or two…that takes seriously dedicated neglect!
In the miraculous news, I had a pot full of lilies of the valley bulbs. I ignored them last year and I thought they were dead, but they have returned in spades!
Well, there’s more projects that I need to take care of outdoors. I hope you and yours are doing well! May your gardens grow strong and happy!
