My Garden…

The temperatures are beginning to rise here in the Valley of the Sun and I have been busy the last few days cleaning up our little garden area. A few of our plants have started to show signs of stress, which meant it was time to evaluate what I would try to keep and what I knew would need to go.

I spent the majority of this morning rearranging things and I repotted a couple of plants too. I also cut the last of my Italian Oregano, which is currently in my dehydrator drying, and removed the plant so I can empty out the container. The mint was repotted into larger containers and I’m so glad I did this because all three of them were so root bound. They now look much happier.


I no longer have hanging buckets, everything has either been repotted or removed. I also repotted our Thyme, which likes its spot much better too. Now I’m thinking of summer plants I can pot that will withstand the heat and the intense sun.

I know many of you are just now getting your gardens going and I’m a but envious, but know I will be back into full swing of gardening this fall. Meantime I will enjoy seeing all our peppers grow – jalapeños , bell pepper, poblano, candy cane and mad hatter – and enjoy picking our cherry tomatoes.

  1. Everything looks lovely and green. If you have extra of your chocolate mint to dry, I would happily purchase some from you (or trade for fiber or something). Weirdly, I have a hard time growing mint here. I’m not sure why since it’s hard to even cut back anywhere else.

    1. I would be happy to share chocolate mint with you Anne and do not need anything in return. Mint can be fussy but I found that it works great with a nice mulchy soil and even watering, like every other day.

  2. Your container garden seems so much more manageable than one in the ground, but I suppose that’s by design. I still have to get my seedlings started; I’ve been worried about when to start them because the weather has been so unpredictable. But now that I think the snow is finally behind us, I can do it.

    1. It’s very manageable for us, and I really like it but I do miss having an actual garden in the ground. Hopefully I can have one in the future. I can’t wait to see what you plant in yours 😊

  3. I love your garden! It looks so cozy. Our ground is just starting to thaw so still the very beginning of spring here with a few bulbs out and the grass starting to grow.
