Gardening Learning Curves and printable Summer pic

It's nightshift recovery time for me...and that also means catching up with those chores like laundry, cleaning...and I finally found time to wash my curtains today and clean the windows. It's a job I hate but the sun made all too visible what really had to be done !

The gardening is definitely a learning curve. After several days of rain my poor plants were nearly drowning , so I had to drill several holes into the pots to let the water drain off. Next pot I plant will have enough holes before I plant anything in it,lol.
My plant babies are currently loving the sunny weather and growing nicely.

It might not seem much to people who have a garden , but for someone on the 3rd floor in a block of flats this little grow bag and patio pot garden is fantastic,lol......Snowy's mini farm ;) ...making the most out of the little space I have .

Also my chilli pepper plants by the window are doing well. This is what I had after picking this morning .
Last week I transformed an old small shelf which used to be in my kitchen. After I bought a new large spice rack I first wanted to throw this away,but now I'm glad I didn't.
After painting and applying the same antiquing paints as I did previously for the other items it turned out to be the perfect shelf for my pencils ;)
And it matches the rest of my self decorated stationary storage.
Anyway, here is a little freebie. A printable "Hello Summer"  because better weather finally seems to have arrived here in UK.

I'm going to have overtime at work coming up, so I'm not sure how much time I will have to be creative , but I'll pop in and share whenever I have something new :)

Till then
Hugs Snowy

Size of the garden isn;t that important, it is about the love you put into it and it will show it's appreciation.
Yeah, snowy, it is better to plant something in pots with at least one hole in it. and then for some really dry loving plants you can always put in some grit first(after covering the hole with e.g. a piece of terracotta frrom an old pot), they will love that.
If you have any questions you can always ask, perhaps I can help you.
You chillipeppers are such fun. I have lots of tomatoe plants, but they are slow in develloping, they should start flowering by now. We'll see if they will produce any tomatoe.
Washing curtains and windows isn't my cup of tea neither but it has to be done sometimes LOL.
Have fun with your recovering time and take in loads of energy from your garden!

Your little garden looks just lovely. Kyra'a right. It's not the space you have, but the love and care that goes into what you plant. My two little tomato plants aren't very tall but they already have flowers on them. Who knows? I might get some tomatoes this year. Enjoy your time off, hugs, Edna B.
