Container Garden Beginnings

20120521-110606.jpg

Eva and I have a container garden! We have tomatoes, peppers, basil, zucchini and mint in the works and some cilantro, spinach, and marigolds just seeded.

This new obsession was a Mother’s Day gift from a wonderful friend. I check the plants every morning. Eva talks to her marigold seedling. I love breathing in the gentle scent of mint on our deck with my morning coffee in hand. It might be my new form of religion.

Anyone surprised I’m taking up gardening? I don’t like getting dirty. I wear dresses and heels nearly every day of the week. But a bag of potting soil and a couple of seed packets really get me excited apparently.

Let’s call it another manifestation of embracing motherhood and the changes it has wrought in me. These plants are an investment of time. I have to remember to take care of them! Let’s hope we can last the next 30-50 days until harvest. I can’t wait to see Eva’s excitement over out first tomato fruit or a batch of homemade basil pesto. Seriously, that is going to be a thrilling mommy moment.

A new adventure has begun!
