not so gray gardens

hello friends! lately with this warm and lovely weather finally in bloom, i just want to be outside. it makes me happy. whether it's 92 and pure sun like yesterday, or 75 and breezy like today. it is so lovely for the soul after a long winter.

so, of course with all this outdoorness i've been planting stuff! in the ground i planted buttercrunch lettuce, arugula, a lot of kale (two kinds), and tomatoes. this is my first year for ground tomatoes, i made them a new home. so far, so good.

in pots i have basil, oregano, cilantro, another tiny tomato plant i adopted, and some annuals and perennials. i'm looking forward to watching everything grow, and i especially look forward to eating some goodies!

i am terribly grateful that i have a backyard that is pretty much mine. it's a nice little sanctuary to drink my morning coffee and watch the squirrels chase each other.

what about you? is anything fun sprouting around your yard or balcony?
