Earlier this week, I posted about getting my garden together.
Ms. Kat, who may get her own spot in my about our family section since she's making regular blog appearances, brought over a few clippings from her yard. And when I say a few...I mean it seems like she brought over one of everything she's growing.
I don't even remember the names of half the plants she brought over.
Canna lily. Two types of mint. Tarragon. Lemon Balm. Bee Balm. Echinacea. Ginger. Yarrow. Climbing roses. Peppers....
|big lilies, yarrow...who knows what else|
|just ignore the junk|
The list goes on.
We pulled out all the boxwoods and hydrangeas on one side of the house. A friend came over and took all those plants to her house and replanted them. Talk about giving back, right? We're just moving these plants from one home to the next!
In the area now void of plants, we're doing a vegetable garden. Leelee needs to grow a garden to pass off some Young Women's requirement for church. I've got the peppers in (I think. I just planted, no idea what I actually put in the ground). I'm going to get some leafy salad greens and some tomatoes.
|peppers, I think|
I really love the idea of planting edible landscaping. Like the ginger. It's gorgeous and it's food. I'm more likely to take care of it if it's going to feed my family.
Meanwhile in the backyard, I'm trying to convince the husband to get me chickens for my birthday. And build me something like this chicken coop or maybe something more basic.
Any gardening advice for me? Can you identify anything that I've planted or that is in the big bucket of plants?
