Just a little update today. I planted some beans last week as of today, all of them have sprouted! I need to set up some kind of trellis for them, but it's getting about time to rip up the peas, so I may see if I can reuse their trellis... I don't know what to put in the whiskey barrel once it's empty though. Maybe I'll just go crazy and plant twice as many beans!
I also have a miniature rose blooming that I bought for a couple bucks at the grocery store this last winter. All of the buds fell off as soon as I transplanted it so I hoped it would re-bloom for me.... and it's just one bloom, but it makes me so happy to see!
Lastly, I also got engaged! Be prepared for some wedding planning related posts in the coming year!
