Well it's been few weeks since I planted my fruits and vegetables. So I figured it was time for an update. So far, everything is growing really well (which is surprising with my black thumb and all).
Some are having some issues, but in the next week I will be getting the organic fertilizer so hopefully this will help them along. The fertilizer I purchased through Burpee is this one: Organic food for plants
I am, however, very encouraged at this point in how things are going. I truly believe that I can do it this year. This will be the year I am successful with gardening. I have been getting a lot of information from my grandfather on this, as this is what he does for a living (well landscaping, not gardening). We are all very excited to see the outcome.
I think I will need some way to keep the critters out pretty soon (once things start to bloom). I still have to do some research on this one. I don't want to use harsh chemicals on the plants. The whole reason I planted my own was to try to get away from this. So I'm thinking maybe some no kill traps, but I will let you know on that later on.
At the moment, I am just trying to enjoy the success I am having with the garden so far. I am really finding that I enjoy learning about how to make things grow and it can be pretty relaxing too (which is a plus when one deals with anxiety). So I guess that's it for today. I look forward to letting you know how things are going.
Have a great day!
