Are You Planting Anything This Spring?

Some ladies like to garden with flowers.  Some grow veggie gardens.  Some grow little pots of herbs to use in their kitchens.  Are you going to plant anything this spring?  What are you planning on?  Have you started yet?  Is this your first attempt or are you an old hand at growing things?  

My hubby and I do a small box garden of peppers and tomatoes.  And if we lose any of our plants over winter to the frost, we replace our flowers/shrubs or try new items.  We lost a couple of agapantha plants this winter, so I think I'm going to replace them with Shasta daisey shrubs.

I'm not a gardener really, but this year I've planted flowers out back and I've been thinking of trying tomatoes in containers. Fresh herbs would be nice too.

 I planted seeds already!   It's really warm here--Corpus area.  I have some plants that butterflies like started in trays--they will be ready to plant in the ground soon.  I planted seeds of Johnny Jump Up flowers, Carpet of Snow and some Catnip.  They've sprouted already.  I also planted basil and rosemary seeds and they are doing well.   I had planted chives but the cat killed them when she launched herself to the kitchen window sill trying to get a bird---there's glass there you crazy cat!!!

I have a ton of other stuff to plant and things to rearrange in the yard.  It's sooooo windy here and we are in the middle of a drought so it's hard to work.  Sometimes the wind will blow me over!  I'm still finding spots around the house and smoke house that are out of the worst of the wind for my babies.  I have lavender to plant too.  I'm so late on that one.

I have been stalking the Queen palms at Sams Club. I want a new pretty pot for it. I rarely spend such large monies on my desires

 We will put in a Large veggie and herb garden. I am using heirloom seeds...corn, black beans, kidney beans, green beans, purple hull peas, crowder peas, zuchinni, yellow squash, watermelon, cantelope, four types of peppers, three types of tomatoes, mixed lettuce, and various herbs. I dont do flowers, if I am going to put the effort into it I want to eat it :).
