Grow Things! [one]

Hello! I have decided to document my adventures in gardening. Since Matthew and I bought our home last October, we acquired a nice garden spot that was screaming for us to start using this year. So a couple weeks ago I started growing some plants indoors. I will try my best to take weekly pictures.

First, we decided what we wanted to grow. Here's our list: onions, kale, tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, potatoes, corn, carrots, green beans, watermelons, cucumbers, blackberries and blueberries.

So far I've planted onions, kale, tomatoes, peppers and strawberries inside. We visited a local store to purchase planting pots and soil that can be put directly into the ground when the time is right. I used just a muffin dish to hold them in. We have a great spot upstairs that is well lit for them to grow. I've also put a used water bottle by them to squirt them daily since they don't require too much water and it saves my preggo self some steps!

Here's week one:

Along with planting these inside, my husband borrowed a rototiller from his brother to till the garden outside. I snapped a few pics of him "working the land". LOL

Week two:


Week three:
The only plant that hasn't sprouted anything so far are the strawberries :(
I'm patiently waiting...

Thanks for reading!


  1. That's awesome! Matt hated working in the garden growing up, but then I did too. Just like the plants we grow and mature.

    1. So far he hasn't complained but it's only the beginning - haha! I am really hopeful we successfully grow at least one veggie and fruit! More sprouts came up since last week which is really exciting!

  2. I want to come to your house and eat fresh fruit & veggies now :) YUM! Look at you!
