My New Adventure

My New Adventure 

Last year I tossed around getting a plot at our Church Community Garden. I already have a back yard garden. But I am never able to fit all I want to plant in my back yard. And I wanted to plant potatoes. So guess what my new adventure is?

 If you guessed, another garden, you are right on!
 My new adventure is another garden.
My blessing is, I will be receiving garden lessons from my dear friend Marv. If you have not read my posts about Marv, please check out the following.

 My helpers.

 Nothing like a little bit of goofing off!

 We are garden D-3 and D-4.
Yes, I went over board and got two plots.
D-3 is planted in flowers. I have always wanted to have a full garden of Sunflowers, Asters, Cosmos, Zinnias, Marigolds, Gladiolas....

Marv, my 86 year old teacher.
When I shared with him that I took on two plots, he laughed and asked "Are you asking for punishment?"

 And my new adventure begins.
I am excited to show you photos as plants start to grow. 
And I hope to dazzle you with my flower garden.



  1. I hope you aren't asking for punishment :). May your 2 plots yield lots of yummy fresh veggies. At least you have Marv :)

  2. How neat! My grandfather use to grow gladiolas and chrysanthemums; it sounds like you have a good mentor. It is so hot here that my garden is about harvested and somethings are not going to make it this year, but I can start again in September.

  3. How exciting!! You're going to be blooming all over!

  4. Good for you! Can't wait to see more.

  5. Wonderful, Carla! Can't wait to see your great choice of flowers in bloom!

  6. Carla, you are going to be a very busy lady this summer! I hope your gardens grow well. I just love how Marv is your mentor and I love how God places people in our lives to bless us!

  7. I am prepared to be dazzled with your flowers and veggies. Fun to have 2 large sunny garden plots and an older mentor.

  8. It looks like you have a wonderful and experienced teacher with Marv. Good for you taking on this new adventure.

  9. I am so excited for you!! Looking forward to your updates!

  10. I have a friend with a mini farm, and her kids grow cut flowers and sell them in cute tin cans at a local farmer's market. They make a lot of good pocket money!

  11. A garden space and a wise teacher, what a blessing!

  12. Good on you - gardening is good for the soul. Looking forward to seeing all those beautiful flowers, and very envious of all the bouquets you will be able to pick and have in your house. I will have to make a small picking garden somewhere in my garden beds this summer.

  13. I promise you, I will be dazzled.
