I love my garden

It was such a beautiful weekend! On Sunday, I picked up a 4-pack of cilantro at the farmer's market. For some reason, I can never get my cilantro seeds to grow. I wanted to re-pot them into separate containers, and ended potting almost all of my garden! We're moving to the new house in 2 weeks, and there's no way I'm leaving my plants here!

The rose bush was definitely the most ornery about moving from the ground to a pot. My arms look like I got in a fight with an angry cat! I tried to take a picture of my scratches, but I failed.

I was sitting out on the front porch enjoying the weather, and I saw this on the ground. It took me a minute to figure out what it was.

Silly birdies. They really have trouble figuring out where to put their nest every spring. Last spring, they tried the bush to the side of our house. They survived long enough to hatch their eggs, but the momma died shortly thereafter (not sure if it was the neighbor's cat or our resident foxes) and the babies had no chance. Looks like we won't even have babies this time :-(

Here are my soon-to-be-yummy radishes. They're not yet big enough to pull.

Eric picked up some new seeds for me to plant when we get into our new place. We'll have lots of delicious, homemade salads this summer!


  1. good luck with the move. I wish i had a green thumb..

  2. aack moving. best wishes with that. we too have salad growing in our window boxes and as we "thin" we feed them to my daughters lizards. good for you for digging up and potting so you could move your garden. that was work!!!

  3. Love the garden, Michelle:) Take care! Lance

  4. Such a beautiful garden, you do a wonderful job. Wish you could help me here!!!

    So sad about the birds. I know it is natures way, but it still makes my heart sad.

    Hope all goes well with the move! You must be so excited.
