We are super excited to have a 10'x20' garden plot in one of the Highlands Ranch community gardens this year!!! Eek!!! There is just something so magical about watching tiny, little seeds grow into big plants that provide us food! We have been carefully nurturing our seedlings for a couple weeks now, and our homes are starting to look a little like green houses as our seedlings take over tables, counters, and window sills. Ha!
As part of this new gardening adventure, we attended the community garden event at Wilmore Nursery Garden Center last week! We learned soooooo much about how to prepare our soil, what seeds to plant when, how to properly water our garden throughout the season, and so much more...including that gardeners are a super fun group of people and that we do not know what we are doing yet, but we are eager to learn as we go! Do you garden?! What are your best Colorado gardening tips?!
Here is a before photo of where our garden plot is! We are excited to see how this view changes as our plants grow!!!
