Garden Fever!

I have the worst case of ‘garden fever’ this spring!  I didn’t have a garden last year because we had just moved to a new city and my backyard was small.  Plus, learning about gardening in the Mojave desert is a little bit of a learning curve after living in the Mid-Atlantic.

My backyard is still the same postage stamp it was last year, but I have decided to grow a few things in containers, at the very least.

I just planted three types of tomatoes – roma, cherry, and beefsteak – as well as red bell peppers, cilantro, and sweet basil.

 

I am contemplating planting some sugar snap peas in hanging pots.  Something like this, but maybe compantion planted with sweet peas.  Wouldn’t that be lovely?

In any case, I am excited to see my little seeds sprout and turn into thriving plants.  I am anxious for a taste of my first tomato of the season.

Do you have plans for a garden this year?  Big or small?  Are you a gardening newbie, or a veteran?
