My little oasis

Post  seestephrun on 8/1/2013, 6:13 pm

Here's my little garden. My relaxing oasis!

Most of these were taken in early July. Things have grown since then of course. I can't believe how big everything has gotten. Of course, I still find myself impatient at times. I'm having to be more patient with my partially shaded raised bed, but it's been a great lesson to see the difference in growing things in full sun and part shade. Isn't nature fascinating? I love my garden. Sometimes things don't go as planned and it never frustrates me. I love letting nature do its thing and learning from it. I visit my garden every single take. Whether its early in the morning after a run or in the afternoon to read. 

Here's my garden shelf:



My sitting area, which since this photo was taken now has a few new decorations and pots of flowers and herbs:



The sunny raised bed that my dad and I built is on the left and my in ground garden on the right. I sectioned off the in-ground garden in a make-shift SFG way re-using old logs. It's working quite well, better than I thought! 



A photo from this week of my yellow zucchini plant, yellow zukes are my new favourite veggie! :



A photo from a week or two ago of one of the raised beds:



This is the shaded raised bed, it was a gift from my boyfriend (isn't he awesome?). Things are growing slower here but growing nonetheless! The greenest squares were planted earliest. I had some issues with germination because of old seed packets that I sorted wrong. 



And so finally, this is how I organize my seed collection now after realizing my previous methods were not working too well Smile With accompanying seed packets in a file box.

That's a beautiful oasis. I love the seating area and I think my favorite part is the logs. I love them and all the character they add to your garden. Sounds like you had some awesome help putting together a place that you can enjoy. I agree nature is fascinating...I love to go out and walk around my garden area every day and I am in total awe of how amazing it is from the plants and the fruits they grow to all the wonderful little creatures that come along to help take care of the garden. Truly a wonderful gift. Congrats on your garden and can't wait to see update pics in the future.

Neat idea for storing seeds. Always enjoy seeing people make the most out of their space. Where did you find those little glass vials?

 I got the little glass vials from ebay!
They are 16x50mm, now I just have to find some bottles with openings a bit larger to store my bigger seeds - like cucumber, and squash.
