How does your garden grow?

It's that time of year again. Garden time! I love my garden. By March, when the daffodils bloom, I'm aching to play in the dirt. I want leaves on the trees and the grass to be green. Thankfully, the time has finally come when I can get in the dirt and have some fun.

Looky at my square foot gardens. They are the new additions to my veggie garden. I
LOVE them. If you have not tried this, you have to. The planting went so much faster, and my broccoli actually looks marvelous this year. Plus, it's So much easier to water and work with. This one has peas, spinach, carrots, onions, broccoli, beets, chives, oregano, and nasturtiums. I have another one like this one except with kale and no onions. Then I have some more for tomatoes/squash and one for corn/beans.


My flower garden is going more cottage style this year. Hopefully, it will look slightly more structured and less of a mess. Here's some of my flower babies that have been holding me over until the garden bursts into full bloom.

Gazania



Centaurea



Iris



Rose



I'm hoping to get some pics today of my Russian Sage, Honeysuckles, and Scabiosa that are in bloom now.

So, how does your garden grow and what are you planting?
