Last year I didn't plant any vegetables or fruits because I was 7, 8, and 9 months pregnant and I really couldn't bend down at all! This year, I still don't have a garden simply because of time and Seth being away so much, but I decided to do container gardening. At the end of May, (that's when our growing season starts here in Ontario) I gathered some pots, dirt and seeds and got to work.
I planted beans, zucchini, peppers, strawberries, and some herbs. It's been an adventure trying to figure out what grows best in containers and what I should just give up on. But so far, so good:
|My beans that I grew from seed. They germinated in record time!|
|Lots and lots of peppermint. Great for drying and using in teas later on.|
|Snapdragons are Seth's favourite flower. I think it has to do with the "dragon" part|
|Nasturtiums are the easiest flowers to grow from seed!|
That's what I've been up to for the last little while. I've decided that container gardening has to be the easiest ever. All you have to do is remember to water once a day. You don't even have to pull weeds!
