Learning the Art of Gardening

Waiting to plant!

Waiting to plant!

Our little sun room is bursting with life! We have tomatoes, sage, peppers, mints, bee balm, trees of all kinds, some lily bulbs and a couple of hanging baskets with pansies and petunias. Now I’m experimenting with rooting hormone and a soil-less medium so I can learn to root cuttings from just about anything. So much to do!

20160417_180635At the moment we are working on hardening off everything so we can put them in the garden. So far we have cabbage and a few peas in there. I planted a few sage plants but I think I did it too early. I read some conflicting information on when I can plant sage, one read before last frost and another said after last frost. I had two flats, I planted the small one and the other night it got down to 40°. Let’s just say that some of my sage don’t look very happy, really glad I didn’t plant them all. Jimmy made his raised tiered bed for strawberries and planted those last night, can’t wait to see them spread out!
Once we get everything in the garden I can concentrate more on my cuttings and start some fall plants. We are working on making the greenhouse functional, we bought a misting system and are working on it. That’s a discussion for another day.
Thanks for reading!

Hi! I'm Julie and I live in Harford County Maryland. I am currently a computer technician but I have a passion for photography and things that grow. One day I hope to have a small thriving plant nursery, where I can grow many things and take as many pictures of them as many ways as I like. They say if you do something you love you'll never work a day in your life, that's my goal.
