how does your garden grow?

Hi all and happy Monday!  We've been busy here getting our garden planted, and were so excited to see that the semi-flooding didn't wash away our seeds we had planted at the end of May!


I know some of you may be thinking we're crazy with these small little guys, but we're seriously slow up here in Zone 3-4.  Slow like our lilacs are just blooming, and slow like my peonies have yet to open up too!

And slow like the snowpack on the mountains hasn't even melted yet.

On a side note, anyone else have little garden helpers?  Straight lines are a thing of the past for our garden this year!

Do you have a green/black thumb? {or somewhere in between?}  I love gardening stories! :)

{be sure to enter the two very awesome giveaways, too!}


  1. Good luck with your garden, I'm glad it didn't get washed away! If you want to see my garden, I post pictures of it every week.

  2. I keep forgetting how much colder it is where you live, i.e. my peonies and lilacs are long gone. You might want to try a cold frame. You can make one pretty easily, according to a friend of mine, and then you can start lettuce earlier and grow it longer. I'm trying lettuce, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and potatoes for the first time this year. Have fun with your little ones in the garden!!
