Green Thumb

Thought I would finally share some photos of the things I planted for our little patio garden a few weeks ago! African Daisies, Strawberries, Sweet Peas and various other flowers. I especially can not wait till the summer when I can pick some of the fresh strawberries....yummy!

We hope to slowly add some more plants and patio items, so it doesn't look so bare and looks a bit more colorful, but this is a good start, that definitely makes me happy!

Someday my dream is to have a house (totally am not meant to be a lifetime apartment dweller) with a big back yard where I can have a huge garden that a large portion of our fruits and veggies will come from. Also, to have a little chicken coop for yummy eggs and a pygmy goat for fresh milk....ohhh and because they are so darn cute and wonderful pets :)

Hope everyones week is off to a good start!


  1. Looks like you've got a great start! I would absolutely love to have a garden, but unfortunately, I have a bit of a black thumb :( Can't wait to see your beautiful strawberries :)

  3. I love all the plants! And yummm fresh strawberries, I tried to grow them in my backyard but the squirrels ate them before I can :/ oh yay I love houses with big backyard that has a lot plants, it would be so pretty :)

  4. Your patio looks adorable! And we share the same dreams :)

  5. I love fresh strawberries! I have wanted to plant some veggies on our patio, but I am horrible at keeping plants alive :D

  8. These are beautiful! I don't know how I manage, but I grow mold... on my flowers.

  9. Yay! I can't wait until flower season here (June), although I'm not much of a green job, I do enjoy them so.

    Great job on making the most of your cute patio!
