Flordia Backyard Garden

Learning to garden down here in Florida has been a bit of a challenge. I have had quite a few vegetable garden fails so far and very few successes. I know nothing about growing plants down here in this climate, plus finding the time to work on needy plants is difficult lately. My husband and I are slowly replacing the difficult to keep alive plants with easier to care for plants, at least until I have more time one day. Anndddd I will eventually have some delicious vegetables again!

I love nature and looking at the beautiful plants outside. Jake loves wagon rides through the garden when its not too hot.

^Spanish moss looks cool but is super annoying and smothers trees.^

^My little gardener helper. 🙂 I love him so much!^

About two seconds after taking this picture he stuck a handful of grass in his mouth. OH BOY!

We are looking forward to a relaxing and fun Memorial weekend. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Remember to take time from your cookouts and family time to honor all those who have given their lives to protect this wonderful country.

Until next week, XOXO!
