Share my world: Garden Spring 2018

2018 was my second year gardening. A look at my Spring 2017 garden is here. This post is a chronological look at my garden from January to June 2018. In addition to the great food I planted in my vegetable garden I also planted a wildflower garden and started composting this year.

January 2018

I wanted to plant some herbs in the garden. You will see later, that this type of sage has beautiful blue/ purple flowers.

February 2018

Bok Choy
One of my favorites! I let some of it flower and go to seed. I sent seeds to @scottshots in Tahoe. Steem friends connecting in real life!

My cute neighbor wanted to see my garden and he got a yummy treat to eat too.

This is the view I have from my kitchen window. I love looking out while preparing food and doing the dishes and watching my garden grow.

March 2018

The wildflowers started blooming!

and I started composting

which required a lot of studying!

April 2018

The wildflowers continued to grow and made it a delight to be in my garden. It was often surprised by the beautiful flowers that would come up.

Lettuce, bok choy, and carrots

Gorgeous Sage


A beautiful mixture of flowers and food.


The heat is intense by June so the flowers are dying and the watermelon is the only thing left growing.

All photos were taken with my smartphone. It is so great to have such unique, beautiful subjects right in my own yard.
