GARDEN/HOME

Marigolds.

We planted an entire bed of marigolds as an organic pest control method, and I’ve got to say, it’s one of my favorite parts of the garden right now. We grew them from seed and these marigolds are stout.

Not like the six packs bought at the garden center. They are taller, more vibrant and a bit out of control. I love the variety of colors these heirloom seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company offers.

I’ve been cutting them for in the house, and transplanting them here and there for color. Greyson has been plucking them and filling up dump trucks, and making this every day.

This little yellow bowl of dirt sits here day after day and gets fresh marigolds pushed into it, which of course are all shriveled by the next day….but all the more reason to re-seed and start again.

. Happy summer garden days.
