In My Garden

{In my garden is a weekly theme in which I share with you the progress of my vegetable garden. If you would like to join in please feel to share a link to your post or Flickr or Instagram images. Let’s inspire each other! }


DSC03813DSC03812The baby stage of gardening can be so hard to endure sometimes: you put the seeds into the earth, water and wait. Everyday you wake up eager to see what little seed has made its magnificent and magical transformation into a plant. So this week my garden looks a whole lot like it did last week, with the exception of radishes! Oh yes and we will have peas! Can you see the little tiny bits of green in the middle picture? 

Over the weekend I seeded basil, thyme, oregano, Chimayo chiles, tomatillos, butternut squash, zucchini and cucumbers. The tomato seedlings are doing well. I thinned them as well. I feel like thinning seedlings is one of the hardest parts about gardening, at least when you are young gardener. You can’t let them all grow or they won’t grow up strong. But how to choose which seedling gets to stay when they all look so strong?!

For those of your dear friends who are buried under snow and dreaming of summer just know once June and July come I will have a very hard time growing anything as it will be so darn hot!

Oh, and if you haven’t had the chance to enter the giveaway Meryl is holding on her blog there is still time. You could win one of my lovely pot holders!

  1. I find thinning so hard too KC and I have been at it a long time :) I love seeing all the little sprouts.

    Soon! I try to wait until the start of February to even begin thinking about a garden, but looks like that’s only a few days away already!

      Gardening here in the desert has a such a different time schedule from everywhere else. If I waited until February to start seeds I’d be too late for planting outdoors when the seedlings are ready!

  3. I needed these shoots of green this afternoon. Thank you for sharing them with us!

      You are so welcome! I figured with all the lovely snow pictures I’ve seen around the country why not share a bit of spring in the winter!
