Flower Bed Garden Springing Up

I wanted to plant a big garden this past spring. To many things got in the way of that happening. One being time. Second being physically able.

I envisioned a huge garden plowed after buying a garden tiller. Oh the tiller was used but not on a current garden. It was used to plant a few bushes to use as privacy. To block a nosey neighbor.

Plus to till up the small garden area that is straight under a tree. It gets no sunlight whatsoever. I was not going to try a vegetable garden. I knew it would not grow it time.

I live in NW Ohio which only gets few good months of crop growing. Here you plant in the spring when it is cool. The crops grow in the heat of summer, which consists if you’re lucky three months. before the weather starts cooling off and the snow starts coming.

I was lucky enough to add a couple small pallets to my big front garden bed. I can’t remember what I all planted. Between the lack of rain and critters in my yard. I am lucky to get anything to grow.

However, the Lazy Susans, Marigolds and Tomatoes sprung up strong. The tomatoes has flower blossoms. In no time my boyfriend will be able to enjoy fresh tomatoes from the garden. As we gaze upon the flowers growing.

Did you plant a garden this year?

    I am now living at a condo complex, and I am limited to what I can do on the property, yet I am responsible to pay tax for it. So I planted a few flower plants and some herbs in containers on my deck.

    I understand about the lack of rain and critters 🙂

      You can still grow a lot on your deck depending on how you set it up. I wish you luck in what you do.

    I love fresh tomatoes! We live in the south and I don’t have much luck growing them, they critters get them before I do. I do like my squash, peppers and eggplants though.

      Oh that sucks! Sounds like you need a plant guard or cage of some sort to protect your tomatoes. If I don’t use one my tomatoes disappear to the squrriels. They ate my strawberries last year to. I think I got three.

    I live in a farm in Nepal. I have a small flower garden and a large vegetable patch garden. I also farm rice and corn.

    I have marigolds that are doing well… as is my hibiscus. But all of my other plants are suffering from neglect and my un-green thumb.

      I wasn’t able to plant much. So, I have been able to keep up with what I have.
      I am sorry to hear about your other plants.

      Wow, I am surprised. Ohio is known for swampland in certain areas to be able to grow great. Only issue we run in to is all the clay in the ground. Nothing grows in that. In order to do so we must truck in topsoil or river bottom dirt to grow a garden.

    Nothing like having fresh produce from one’s garden and feeding to a loved one tells another story. I have a huge garden which has all what I dreamed of. My fruits give me joy more than anything else in there. I shall post something about it in my articles.

      I would love to learn about your garden. One day I will have a bigger garden. I am trying to get my sons or boyfriend to take apart some pallets. So, I can make raised flower or garden beds.
