Gardening

For the first time I've planted my own containers. I had them all done by Mother's Day, just like my friend taught me. They are looking awesome and I'm feeling really good about successfully having tried something new. I have 15 containers in all, so the practical side of me also made an excel spreadsheet detailing all the plants I bought, what was planted in each container, where it was purchased, how big it was, how much it cost and sun and water needs. So next year won't be such a guessing game!!

WOW! They look great!!! Good job on the cataloging of info. I always intend to do that and never get around to it.

hey, you could sell your spreadsheet to idiots like me with inspirational little notes to help us.

(ohh...except that i have no money to buy it, let alone plants and planters and whatnot. thus my "could be awesome" deck is naked)

but it was a bright, happy moment to see your pictures. thanks for posting about this awesome accomplishment! ♥

You can just forward that excel sheet to me, so i don't have to do any guessing next year either. :)
