Garden Challenge #2

Has it really been a month since the first Garden Challenge post?  Really, this gardening thing is not going at all as planned.  Yet again, I’m surrounded by the smell of lilacs right now, so perhaps things are exactly as they should be.

As for biggest gardening challenge this year, that would have to be lack of time.  And I don’t see it changing anytime soon. 

Let’s start with the easy stuff.  We’ve been enjoying other people’s gardens…

And we’ve had lots of stuff sprouting in our lawn still.

These little things never fail to delight, and we’ve got an abundant crop in our “meadow.”

We finally transplanted our 2nd generation beans (grown from beans we sprouted and grew indoors this winter)…

And the real pumpkin seed that Esmé’s teacher helped her grow indoors…

And the tree we brought home from Earth Day…

As for our planned projects?  We DID complete a few of them.

The Hill of Calvary’s tomb is now empty, and the outside lawn is about to get a transplant.

And Esmé picked out her very own flowers to put in the hanging planters by the front door.

That’s two checked off!  Nothing to eat or write home about just yet, but we’ll get there one of these years…

How is your garden doing?
