So, my favorite thing I planted this weekend were the sweet potato slips I've been growing in the kitchen window for about a month and a half. Here is what the original sweet potato with slips all over looks like-

This weekend I also planted yellow, green, and red bell pepper seedings. The bell pepper seeds I planted never came up. I also planted a mint seedling. The mint seeds I planted also never came up. FYI, Home Depot is having half off their Bonnie Herbs and Veggies this week in honor of Earth Day! (That's where I got my seedlings).
We also mowed, I weeded the veggie garden, planted two rose bushes and some flower seeds. Gardening in my own yard is so fun! There is always something I can do to make it better like weeding, watering, fertilizing, but the amazing thing to me is, things actually grow without a lot of help from me. The seeds or plants get put in the dirt and they just know what to do. Crazy how nature works!
Happy Monday, hop over to our Airstream blog later if you get the chance!
