Ready, set, grow!

This weekend we worked on some of our yard. We had to make a quick trip to the store to get a few things. My awesome hubby is working hard at knocking out my very long honey do list. While he was working hard on painting some shutters (it has been almost 6 years and we haven't done it yet...) I got going on pulling a ton of weeds and prepping our planter for a garden.

I would like to interject here that I have a BLACK thumb. I kill plants. I kill them fast and hard. I am proud to say that last year we planted some perennials and this year they are still alive! I managed to kill a plant that has been deemed hardest plant to kill. Yep, I killed it.

Now that that is out of the way I have another challenge. Space. We have a REALLY little yard. A few years back my hubby built me a flower planter along the side of our garage, and this is really all I have space for planted in the ground. So, this year I will be planting a few things in some pots. I have a few seeds I will try in my planter. And, I will be attempting some of these topsy turvy things to hang from our porch.
Felknor Ventures 82506 Topsy Turvy Upside-Down Tomato PlanterI am excited to try Felknor Ventures 82506 Topsy Turvy Upside-Down Tomato Planter. I have heard from a few people these work really well. I was really excited though that they have a strawberry one! Felknor Ventures TT041112 Topsy Turvy Strawberry Planter. I'm not sure how this will go, but we can put down some strawberries. Plus, this year the kids are super excited to do a garden. We are using it for some of our science this year. I like things that we will have fresh veggies and it teaches the kids somethings. I will hopefully get some pictures up soon and keep you posted as to how it is going. Hopefully we will grow some goodies this year. :)

We just bought the tomato planter this afternoon. If it works out, we might go for the strawberry one as well.
