Gardening: Front yard

I cleaned out my refrigerator today, I used all my old fruits and veggies for composting. I used avocados, blueberries, bell peppers, cucumber, salad, bananas, and corn.  I planted many seeds using my chaos gardening technique. The seeds I planted are : corn, sunflowers, kale, eggplant, carrot, aloe vera, sweet basil, and bird seed mix.

Our spice & herbal garden.

Chia. Mustard. Cilantro. Caraway. Dill.

We enjoyed a carefree Monday by planting flowers.

Vinca’s, Pansies, and Snap Dragon’s now litter our yard.

We had fun making a Home depot run.

J picked out Yellow Pear Tomato plant , pansies and petunias.

            

I admired the grapefruit mint , which smells exquisite.

I am planning on putting these plants with unsowed seed.

Our garden will have exotic and beautiful colors : yellow, pink, magenta, and violet.

On Tuesday, I was at the grocery store strolling the spice aisle .

I decided I would sow the spice seeds poppy and fennel.

I have a empty spot that I will sow the poppy seeds.

Fennel seeds will help J when he has a upper respiratory infection.

  

           

Rogue Gardening!

Yesterday, I impulsively planted some basil, cilantro, and black eyed peas.

I created a pattern of cilantro, black eyed peas, and basil.

Next, I want to plant colorful flowers in front of them.

Hopefully, the flowers will attract butterflies & hummingbirds.

 

 

While, gardening I saw a manic hummingbird fluttering frantically on my newly blooming tree.

They were put in a somewhat shady spot, under my massive palm tree.
