Welcome.

I'm Hannah: mother, wife, photographer, writer, artist, wellness enthusiast and lover of the simple and beautiful. I live in South Florida with my husband Manny, our three children (Seth, Isaac, and Eaden), and our golden doodle Lily.
This is my journal of motherhood, homeschooling, health, and living with grace & intention

garden progress

Summer has been pretty good to my plants. It's been a challenge to keep Seth from trying to pull things up, or throw dirt- he's just at that age right now- so I don't get out there as often as I'd like. I did away with the cantaloupe plant entirely- It was taking over, wrapping itself around the other plants, and not looking extremely healthy anyway. Lesson learned- I think I'll reserve the growing of melons for when I have a field of some sort behind my house, rather than a 3x5 foot raised bed... and I will research a plant for buying it on a whim from now on, hehe!

{almost} sunflowers The sunflower seeds I started are doing well- It looks like I may see some flowers soon. (I hope!)

malabar spinach malabar spinach above two: malabar spinach.

red rubin basil Red rubin basil. Started from seed. It's doing okay, but is getting eaten a bit by something.

basil I started this from seed, and it is definitely my most successful gardening venture yet. This plant is huge- over two feet tall {probably should have pruned more in the beginning- I'm learning :)} It flowers like this all the time lately but I trim them off since I quite obviously have enough for now.

potted basil {Potted basil} This is the product of my first attempt to root something in water. They're doing really well!

frangipani {plumeria} I bought this clipping at an art festival last year, and it finally sprouted leaves! I cant wait for the flowers.

It has been so very hot and humid, and there were things I didn't plant in the spring because I read that they grow better in the fall in Florida- like tomatoes, lettuce and kale. I'm looking forward to starting those later this year!

Have I mentioned...

stop.
