I have a habit of talking the talk, but failing to walk the walk. I talk about many things I want to do in my life, thinking of them as more of a dream than a reality. I’ve made excuse upon excuse ranging from, “I don’t have time” to “I don’t know where to begin.” One of my goals in life, aside from owning chickens and walking on Pluto, is to have a garden. I have longed for the satisfaction of harvesting my own fruits and veggies for years, but have yet to take the plunge..until now.
I salvaged a few wooden wine boxes from TJ’s and I am planning to grow some vegetables in them. With little to no knowledge, I decided to visit a nursery for ideas and inspiration. The nursery had so many fun and exciting things. Every loop and corner had a new ocular adventure.
Food: Fruits, potatoes, onions, herbs..the food plants were the most exciting. I imagined having a backpack with soil for a portable garden/lunches on the go.
Flowers: A nursery would be incomplete without trees and flowers.
Pottery: For those that want variety, decoration, or aren’t lucky enough to have a lot of land to plant in.
Those are all great, but I’d rather have one of these.
Imagine growing a veggie in that. Broccoli, and Brussels, and kale OH MY!
Randoms: Garden trinkets, scenery, plants.
This nursery also offers free classes on certain gardening topics. I signed up for veggie gardening 101 (which I went to earlier today!)
The nursery adventure both inspired and exhausted me. I needed to refuel my tank, and then refuel my brain. Tank first: Cinnamon rolls from the market.
Brain second: An at home experiment with alien growing garlic.
Watch out Ciscoe, there’s a new green thumb in the making!
Q: Any gardening tips for a first timer!?
