My Tiny Garden is Growing


I feel like a little kid watching my garden grow! This veggie garden is really small but I think will be really big once it matures and the veggies start to emerge. The photo on the right is from a week ago, and the one on the left is from yesterday and my how fast my pumpkins and cucumbers are growing. My granddaughter is having fun watching nature’s work too. I can’t wait to show her the cucumbers and pumpkins, tomatoes and bell peppers. Snap peas and blueberries! The herbs are not exciting but are getting bigger each day too. She won’t understand the herbs, but the others will be fun. I planted multi-color bell peppers and am hoping for an assortment of colors! AND the pumpkins seeds are both orange and white pumpkins, I can’t wait to see all the COLORS!! πŸ˜€


The snap peas are going CRAZY! Look at all that green, all from seeds! I am easily amazed if you can’t tell and right next to the snap peas on the left are my bell peppers finally showing up! I’m trying not to over water, and want to make sure I water enough. We’ve had a mild spring here in Southern Cali so I’m grateful for that this year as some years it’s just hot, hot and more hot. But these seedlings have had a great start and warmer weather is on its way!Β  πŸ˜‰


These herbs are coming along. You have to remember I live inland about 40 miles from the Pacific Ocean which is basically desert or desert like as it gets hot in the summers. I’m about an hour and a half from Palm Springs, now that’s the desert. AND it gets super hot there almost always 10 to 20 degrees hotter than my location. So growing anything here requires lots and lots of water because we just don’t get much precipitation as the weeks roll by. BUT the last month as I planted we have had a lot of cloud cover, dewy nights with lots of precipitation exceptional for this area. We call this kind of weather June gloom as it can be cloudy and overcast throughout the mornings with the fog and clouds rolling in from the coast which is usually in June, it came a month early. I’m far enough inland that it usually burns off and warms up and can get hot. But has been so nice and cool, I have been relishing the weather this last month of May. I wonder if it will be a hot June? I’m praying for a mild summer, one can wish!Β  ❀

    It is so wonderful to watch ones garden grow! I think it is as wonderful as when I was a kid helping my grandma in her garden. Or maybe more πŸ™‚ You’re facing the same problem as I do with the heat. It is worth it though πŸ™‚ Best of luck!
