Hobby – Plants & Gardens

I sowed more seeds over the last few weeks, spurred on by the idea of blogging about gardening this year. I used dirt from our two front barrels (peat, black earth), but I’m wondering if what’s coming up is weed instead of plant.

Most of what I sowed were flowers. Some Hollyhocks, coneflowers, ornamental grass, and some spearmint. I LOVE spearmint tea, and it’s good for the digestive system. I planted the spearmint in a pot as it’s a very invasive plant.

Husband cleaned out the garden and put some compost in and mixed that up. It still needs to be tilled, to mix the ash in. He wants to do a garden again, and so do I, but we’re going to be smart about it this time, especially as we know what plants do what. 


This is the only place I could put my seeds. As long as they stay wet, they should be fine.
