Garden: Phase 1

I have so many other important things I want to blog about, but I can't help but be super excited about my first (seemingly) successful foray into growing things!

I'm moving at the end of the month to a house where I'll start a vegetable and fruit garden, and even though my apartment porch doesn't get more than 5 hours of sun a day, I just couldn't wait any longer. Meet my new friends:

Arugula (edible flowers!)

Marigold (attracts good insects)

Heirloom Cherokee tomato

I planted them a few days ago and so far so good. The Cherokee looked very wilty right after I planted it, but then I watered it and it perked right up.

This guy is a couple of months old, and I already forgot what it is. Some awesome succulent.

I know my love for them is dangerous, since at any time they could contract a disease or pests could be the end of them. But I am so excited and love watching them not die :)


  1. I know what you mean! I love watching my plants, too. Good luck with your baby garden! Awesome photos, by the way.
