#OurProject52 – 10/52 Green

How fitting a prompt for this week as Atlanta saw the longest stretch of Spring that we’ve seen in nearly a year. Although rainy, the clouds couldn’t put a damper on warmer temperatures that have really set off my gardening “green” thumb.

I set off to Home Depot a few days ago to pick up dirt and compost for my garden containers. Needless to say the flower set off my sinuses and I ended up in the bed at 6p with the worst sinus headache ever. I digress


A Sneak Peek of Spring

Yesterday the weather was glorious. The temperature maxed out at 79 degrees and nothing cheered my heart so than to spend an afternoon outside. I love the outdoors, a trait that I must’ve been born with because I have vivid memories of begging to get in a last double dutch jump before the street lights came on.

Some wouldn’t turn because they were afraid to let the lights come on before they got home. Not me. I remember hearing her yelling my name to come in so that I could be ushered directly to the bathtub without any chances of passing go because I’d been out all day.


Container Gardening Tips

I know you read the title and thought it is nearly freezing outside why would anyone be thinking about gardening but I’m here to tell you I am starting to plan out my garden for this year. Last year was my first year and I had a great yield. I poorly documented it as life got in the way but we saw tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, strawberries, scallions, green beans, and a baby watermelon amongst a few spices  grow right on our deck.
