Happy Saturday garden lovers!
Are you enjoying your weekend?
This morning I walked for MS and then enjoyed a relaxing, delicious lunch with friends... salad with juicy tomatoes, honey-dipped baked sweet potato fries, homemade agave-sweetened lemonade, and fresh basil pesto! The afternoon was spent weeding and taking care of the garden. ♥
What's blooming? Snapdragons and strawberries!
Last year's strawberry pot is taking off! I followed the advice of "The Girl's Guide to Growing Your Own: How to Grow Fruit and Vegetables Without Getting Your Hands Too Dirty" by fertilizing my strawberry plants with seaweed!
The author recommended a liquid seaweed feed, (what?! sounds scary...) but I decided to try kelp, from the local vitamin store in the form of capsules, which I opened and sprinkled on the strawberries! Between the 2 small plants, there are 25 strawberries!! (Last year I got maybe 7 berries total?) I will definitely be using kelp powder again this year! ♥
What's blooming in your garden? Have you ever used seaweed as fertilizer?
