Hey Guys,

Hope you are having a great day. Learning how to garden has been quite the experience. I have now been maintaining a little patio garden and herb garden for about 6 months. I have learned quite a bit in that short amount of time.  I feel I tried to take the easy route using seed sheets and nothing else, and I completely failed. I also took a lot of little trips out of town and even some big trips. I never quite learned how to water my plants when I am away. I also had no idea about fertilisers or soil. Now, I feel I have a pretty decent handle on growing things. I am now able to harvest things. My swiss chard that survived has now gotten to harvest, as well as my chives and cilantro!

I have a few more plants, some spinach and more garlic but they weren’t camera ready. Gardening has become my most-loved hobby. When I get home, it is the first thing I want to do. I check on my plants, do any pruning and any harvesting. I cannot wait to get more space to continue growing.
