Lately, I have been teetering on going beyond Vegtables in the Garden. I have been reading another blog that belongs to a friend on Twitter! Her blog is here on Blogger called Cheesehead Gardening! She is a huge Hosta Geek! Hostas are her passion. She knows tons of great things about Hostas. Every time I read a new post, I got excitied and wanted to grow them. Jen (@hostageek on twitter) asked me one day if I wanted a Hosta that she had. I said, YES!!! After waiting with great anticipation. They arrived to my house in California all the way from Wisconsin! Exciting isnt it! Even more exciting there were 3 differnt types of Hostas! More then I had expected! I unpacked those babies and put them in some water. At the begining of the week I started to make an area to grow them in my backyard.
Getting the dirt ready and all that fun stuff. Today was the big day! I planted my Hostas with the help of my little one Kyla. She is 6 and loves to garden with me. She decorated our Hosta bed with rocks and ceramic frogs and snails. It looks so cute and has brightened up that empty garden bed. Thanks again Jen, for bringing Hostas into my life!
My very first Hostas!
