May 22, 2015 Garden Update

“A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.”

Here’s an update of my vegetable garden. I took  the pictures on May 19, 2015. Since the last couple of daysI’ve been adding more raise beds/containers/towers to add my other vegetables in. My Pototoes and Strawberries are enjoying the towers that I made for them. And In a couple of more weeks, my strawberries will be ready to eat 🙂 Yummy!!!
 I’m already planning for next year garden season. Haha! My plan is to buy strawberry crowns from an online store.  And for only $36.00, you get 100 strawberries crowns. Such a great deal. 🙂
So far, I have Tomatillos, Tomatoes- Juliet and Big Boy, Cabbages, Onion, garlic, cucumbers, 6 different varieties of squash, watermelon, peppers, grapes, peaches,  corn, nectarine and a couple of different herbs.  .
Its going to be a long fun season for me 🙂 
In the last couple months, I have been busy attending horticulture classes. I made the Dean’s List 😀 and I have a feeling that I’m going to make it again. *Finger Cross* I learned a lot of plant information. A lot of things made more sense when the professor explanied a lot of the stuff.
I’m going to take two classes this Summer- A perennial and site system class. 🙂 I only got 2 weeks of break. So I’m going take advantage of my free time 😀

Hi everyone name is Cecilia and, I'm 25 years old. I'm passionate about plants and gardening. At the age of 16, I was bitten by the gardening bugs, thanks to my grandma and my sweet, lovable mama. I plan to share my hopes, dreams, fears, and daily happenings in my life. When the days are beautiful. I enjoy going on road trips and especially go on hikes. I'm just recently graduate from college, and I was able to get my degree in Horticulture- Small Market Farming. Now I'm working on getting my IT innovation Degree at UNOmaha. My dream is to one day possess my own land out in the country, but near the city. Where I can be surrounded by peace and filled with inspiration with a little mix of technology. If you have any questions, feel free to email me :))
