At this time of year I start to think about flowers and gardens and life returning to the trees and hills. Last year gardening season was kind of a bust for me. It was a transitioning time in life. We were moving and my son and I were travelling to Australia. I planted a few pots at our new apartments but it was nearly July bye the time we had settled and I got around to it so only flowers made an appearance.
This year I want to do more on our sunny little patio. I am not used to Denver planting guides so I have a bit of research to do as to when is the best time to plant and uncover my iris bulbs I have had hiding away for the winter.
This year I would like to grow my own herbs, I think this is all I can expect in the small space I have. One day I will have space again to get back into vegetables but for now I will enjoy smaller plants and frequenting the local farmers market :)
I would love to give cilantro, mint, rosemary and thyme a space in my 2013 garden. These are herbs we use regularly. I don't have much room but I have seen some cute ideas out there.
Things like this
I love this shoe hanger idea, I could put this over our storage room door
I also think something like this could work well in the little corner we have free out there
I love growing my own plants and i love getting my son involved.
What plants will you be growing this year and do you have any ideas for small gardens you can share?
