Speaking of a garden, I had my backyard cleared up just this morning and I am excited at the prospect at starting my very own vegetable garden. But, I'm also a bit nervous and unsure because I have never been the one with the green thumb. Plants seem to die around me. I'm aiming to research as much as I can about it. I don't know much about gardening. (obviously) But, I'm still pretty much hyped about it.

Oh? yes you can search for help on why some people have no green thumb as what they call it. But I think, if you just take care good care of your plants, they will grow healthy and productive.

Yeah. I guess it's just because I didn't have much time to take care of my plants before. But now that I'm staying home a lot, I should have more than enough time to.

Lucky you. It is not the time yet here, it is still rather cold and the ground is still cold, not for the garden season yet, even the night is still too cold to start indoor. Hopefully, when the the temperature increases soon, I can do that, right now, I just don't have any motivation for it.

Well, same here. the outside is still very cold and am wishing this will be over in a week so that I can start to plant in my seed beds ready for my garden.

Its getting to be that time of the year again. It is a very great feeling to be able to plant your garden, is it not? Especially when the plants start to grow into the later spring and the early summer months. It is a bit of a hobby to keep me sane and also it did help me through college a bit by selling home grown tomatoes which is a rather popular seller. Still it is a great feeling to see your plants grow and then turn into a harvest. It also saves money on purchasing the actual items that are grown right at the grocery store. Something that I am sure that many really could go for in this world. It might be a bit time consuming and some people don't have the gift, but that's just the way life goes. Still its getting close to that time and it just seems like yesterday the garden was cleared off. Time goes by fast.

yes, I agree with that. I love to see the products of my garden and it could help us save from buying vegetables in the market.

Hi, Oh..I believe you have such a nice garden. I love to see a nice and beautiful garden ,but I myself is not good in gardening and gardening is not my hobby. When I visit someone 's house which has a beautiful garden, i love to walk around and enjoy those beautiful flowers and plants. But asking me to plant some flowers, I may not be able to do it. My in-laws plant some vegetables at our backyards and it really save money to buy some vegetables and they are even fresh vegetables.

I agree with that, having our own garden can help us save for the rest of the spring and summer days. If you know how to canned vegetables, it will help you save up to the winter.

Hello there! I also love to see greens, I love nature really. And its my ultimate dream to have my own garden. Now, I don't have any space to plant all my favorite trees and flowering plants so im looking forward to save and save so I could be able to buy a small piece of land where I could have my own dream garden. Congrats to you for having some vegetables planted in your very own garden, I also love to have them in the future. Have a nice day ahead!

Oh!! you can still plant in a potted thing. Use pots if you don't have an area to plant. You can still grow vegetables in the pot. Tomatoes, peppers, onions,etc. It is exciting to have our own products.

I am so excited to get started on this soon as well. Me and my mom were talking about a week ago about starting the garden and clearing out the rocks in the back yard to put some planters down to plant some seeds and start the summer garden again. I will probably do it this weekend if i have some time.

I haven't started yet, but there's some vegetables growing already on their own! I want to start soon so I can organize and plant others since we got additional space this year.

There is nothing more satisfying than seeing your finished days work in the garden but I just find it such hard work especially keepng the lawn cut, I think that is mans work, I have let my garden grow out of control and an just starting to try and get it back to some order.

I love to see my vegetables bearing fruits. Yes it is satisfying to see the fruits of you labor. I just hate to see the animals ruining my products in the garden. That is another problem to solve.

You must be from a place that has winter season and now that winter is almost over you can now plant in your garden again. Here in the Philippines we don't have winter so planting is 365 days a year. But when it's too hot or too cold it's also not easy to grow anything. But, having a garden is very relaxing. It has that therapeutic effect on people. Plus the smell of the plants and flowers are so good for our health. The sight of the butterflies visiting your garden is also nice. Well, I'm only imagining those things because I don't have a garden to plant anything on. I only have a few pots in front of my house.
