The previous owners of the house my husband and I just bought came with a great garden space set up. The hardest part will be to keep evertyhing alive over the hot summer coming up—we’ll have plenty of garden projects to customize everything just the way we want.

We may be moving into a larger space with a pre-existing garden. As such, I’m reading a book on horticulture to start learning about how to build and care for a garden landscape. Exciting! If I can only keep my balcony garden alive for the move…
This weekend I swept the area clean of dead leaves and threw away all the dead plants that didn’t make it through the winter months. Next weekend our plan is to re-pot an overgrown tomato plant, and to start a new tomato plant. A visit to the nursery will be in order—will look for some new plants to replace the ones we lost.
The small patio garden my husband and I created has been neglected the past couple of months through the winter—it has been too easy to forget watering the plants when the mild winter weather doesn’t dry them out so quickly as in the hot summer months. The intermittent rain, too, has kept most of the plants hanging on. This morning I watered the plants (the first time in at least a week) and noticed how unkempt everything has gotten. I’ve resolved to do some tending of the plants and general area this weekend.
