Garden Update 5/29/2015

This year, my goal is to harvest about 150 pounds of fruits and vegetables from my small backyard. I’m going to spend a lot more time outdoors, tending to my garden. I have also started to volunteer at a community garden, and so far, I’m loving it. And who knows, maybe once I’m finish with my horticulture degree. I might open an urban farm or maybe a nursery here in the Omaha/Council Bluff area. Until then, I will be working hard.

Here’s an update of my garden.  🙂

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 :))

  1. Your garden is getting big Cecilia 🙂 And I can’t believe your squash is already flowering. The plant is so small. Great work! I know you could do it. Work Hard=You will get rewarded in life 🙂 Opening an urban farm is a great idea, especially neighborhood that are mostly low-income. This will help prevent a lot of issues like, gangs, violence, crime reduction, and many more. 🙂 Once again I wish you the best 🙂
