Late Bloomers

I know we’re a bit behind the curve, but Jesse and I really wanted to plant a garden this year. It’s too late in the season for most planting and to be 100% honest, I really don’t think we’ll have time this year. But that doesn’t mean I can’t have a few fresh herbs and some flowers right? We bought the seeds a few weeks ago and I finally got around to planting them this week! We used these cool little planters that are decomposable to make things easier for transplanting when the plants get big. For now I only planted two herbs and one type of flower, but maybe I’ll do some more later on. Parsley and basil are supposed to be two herbs that you can really tell the difference between fresh and dried, so those are the two we picked to plant. Echinacea, or coneflower, is Jesse’s favorite type of flower. It’ll be nice for him to finally have a plant that he can smile at as it blooms like I do with the hydrangeas and day lillies 🙂 I didn’t make any fancy little labels for my planters yet, but I plan on doing something creative when they get larger and I transplant them. For now I went super creative and did this. Aren’t you overwhelmed by how amazingly creative that label is?! 😉 It gets more ghetto creative! I placed my planters in various kitchen containers, so that I could water them from below like my friend Kristen at Popcorn on the StoveAll of my plants and flowers always get placed in the big bay window in our dining room when I get them and they always thrive, so I figured that would be the best place for my little seedlings for now. We shall see how they do! I’ll keep you guys informed on whetheror not I get any sprouts! I really can’t wait to use some fresh herbs in my cooking! 🙂

Have you done any planting this year? Do you have a garden or potted plants?

  1. I hope they sprout soon so you can get to cooking! We have done our fair share of landscaping around the house, but we haven’t really planted any flowers in the beds. I always thought we’d get around to it, but not yet! With my luck, we’ll probably get there by the time mums are in season. 🙂

  2. Good luck with all those plants! I love those fiber planters. When I did our latest replant, I was able to kinda tear and fold down the sides so we could have an even layer of soil on top.

    PS – Thanks for the shout out 🙂

  3. I have not done any planting at all. Last year we at least grew hebs and tomatoes, but this year we were kind of lazy! I hope you have lots of sprouts soon!

  4. Oh man, so did we! We even tilled up a plot of ground, but then everything fell apart and all I grew in my garden was grass. 🙁

  5. DONT FORGET THE MINT PLANT FOR HOMEMADE ICED TEA :} !
    THIS YEAR IM ONLY DOING MINT,BASIL AND LITTLE JACK PUMPKINS :] !
    GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BOUNTY!

  6. Good luck with your herbs!! Love those labels hehe 😉 Just teasing, I wouldn’t make fancy labels either if I knew I was going to transplant them!

  7. Our landscaping is seriously lacking at our house. We’re lucky we even get the grass cut at this point! The wedding has taken over. Weeds have taken over and I have planters of dirt sitting on my porch…. classy! lol. Next year they’ll be beautiful though and I’ll finally get that vegetable garden… right? lol.

    Good luck with your little plants! Hope they grow for you!

  8. Oh, best of luck. I failed miserably at those seedlings – I even sprouted the seeds in wet paper towel but sadly they didn’t survive the transplant to soil 🙁 I hope yours go much better than mine!
