    #growyourown #cooking I grew some carrots, broccoli, and onions. Surprisingly they took very little work. After they were grown I made them into stir fry with chicken soy sauce and celery.

    i have been growing an avocado plant and it is awesome watching it grow day to day. the only thing i do not like about these plants is they take about 7 to 10 years to sprout its first avocado #growyourown.

    I had a bean seed but then we had to go somewhere and we didn’t water them. So the stalk was brown when we came back so that was a total fail at trying to grow something.

    Today I planted an apple seed (indoors). Not sure if it will grow, but if it does I will post a picture of it again next year, to show how it looks! Here is how it looks now:

  • #growyourown I started my own mix of a flower garden yesterday. It has poppy seeds in it and a little of this and a little of that for flowers. the poppy seeds are from my cousins’ grandparents house in OR, we had so mush harvesting them! Thanks for reading! QueenBee

    • One of my favorite gardens growing up was my mom’s flower bed next to our sunny deck, which featured tons of poppies– red, lavender, and white. Hers always grew as tall as the neighbor’s hollyhocks and were fun to collect seeds from for planting the following year. Your flower garden will surely be beautiful.

    This year for my family’s vegetable garden I’m not helping as much as in previous years, but I help with putting on soaker hoses to water the garden, and also pull weeds sometimes. Below are some pics:

    me and my mom planted carrots beans lettuce broccoli radishes pumpkins cucumbers and zucchini

  • #growyourown
    So this year we planted carrots, peas, cucumbers, blueberries, tomatoes, zucchini, squash, lettuce, green onion, and radishes. We have a really big garden bed that was full of thistles, grass and other weeds that had gotten really big, so I cleaned it out by myself. It was really fun for some reason. Usually I hate weeding. lol

    • Well, everything except for the carrots, zucchini, (maybe some lettuce) and radishes died. Our family has had more of a ”black thumb”…. haha The zucchini are doing really well, though.

      • I’m sorry to hear that you lost some of your plants. Sounds like you still have quite a bountiful garden despite that!

  • #growyourown
    I got this beaten up potato (i cannot remember where) but i cut out the bad parts and planted the bad slices. But i think it died :p (it looks like it did but im not sure)

  • #growyourown
    I’m not one to grow plants, they always die. Last school year in my biology class we had to grow fuscia trees. In the greenhouse. Ya I gave mine a little Snapple (myfl favorite beverage) thinking it would enjoy the sweet strawberry kiwiness. It didn’t, the next day it was dead. :/ see I’m not a. Natural gardener

    • I’m sorry about your fuschia plant. I hope this experience doesn’t discourage you from trying your hand at gardening again. It’s pretty exciting to see something you’ve planted grow and flourish. Thanks for sharing.

  • #growyourown During the spring my dad planted some zucchini and a ton of tomato plants. Even though I did not do much in the way of planting, I do a lot of watering. It is so exciting to see the plants grow!

    • Your enthusiasm for your dad’s garden makes me smile, and it’s great that you help with the watering, which is a huge task. Thanks for sharing.

    I planted apple seeds. Plus some cherry seed from my cherry tree. I watered them and gave them sun outside but it never grew. then i figured out I forgot to look up when to plant cherries or apples. It was a bummer.

    I planted raspberry plants and they are really tiny still, so I think the berries will be ready in a year or two. #growyourown

    • Wow, you’re quite a serious gardener– and a very good one, judging from the pictures. Would you mind sharing a few of the things you’re growing? It looks like you’re growing, for instance, tomatoes in one of your raised beds.

    I’ve never had much of a green thumb, so I was surprised to keep my first houseplant alive for even a few days! My family doesn’t have any yard at all, so I grow it inside. Sometimes I forget to water it, but usually it looks happy and healthy.

    #growyourown My little four year old sister is very passionate in her love for flowers. So we started a little flower garden in our backyard. There’s all kinds of flowers we picked up from a roadside nursery, mostly of pansies, large daisies, and some pink flowers. :) We spend a few hours planting and watering ’em.
