spring veggie planting + a new member of the family!

My friend sent me a message the second day of February saying, “Happy Candlelight Day and Happy Start of the Spring Planting Season!” Quite honestly I was like, “Oh really? That’s today?!” – me being oblivious of time and all. Throughout the day I couldn’t wait to get home and plant. But, I didn’t cuz of school. However, a week ago I finally did! I planted onions, cilantro, tomatoes, chiles, melon, and a beet.

Today, I woke up and saw this:

I was worried they wouldn’t grow, but ah, I’m so happy they did! I used to keep them inside, but since the afternoons have gotten warmer, they are now outdoors. I think they enjoy it.

Beauties!

Back in November/December I had planted two bell pepper plants, a tomato, an onion, cilantro, and even tulips! This is how they look today:

Two tulips!

My cilantro looks a little bit like a hot mess in the previous photo, but in person it is so beautiful and smells delicious! My guinea pigs LOVE it!

Speaking of guinea pigs.. meet the newest member of our family:

Isn’t he an adorable guinea pig?! He’s very active and loves attention. I can’t wait to make memories with him and his sister, Linda, for the years to come. I’m sure Napoleón, my first guinea pig who left my side this past October, would have liked his company as well.

One last thing before I go: did you notice my recycled water bottle pots? If you liked them and want to make some for yourself, here is my tutorial on how to do them!

Thanks for stopping by friends!

Happy Saturday!!

I go to my window and what do I see? These babies growing taller and taller and their babies blooming from the soil! Ah, you don’t know how happy this makes me! I have always wanted to plant veggies.

In the first pot we have snap peas, and in the rest cilantro. I’m gonna have to transplant all of the cilantro soon.

When spring comes, I’ll be sure to start a garden outdoors. :) Just wanted to do a quick update from my last post, where Napo and I went outside to admire their growth.

Have a very nice Friday!
