Today Is Earth Day - So We Expanded Our Back Patio Garden

Earth Day 2015!

Will you do something nice for the earth today?

This mommy was very excited to score a great deal on some new "veggie baby plants" for our back patio area yesterday.  So after the kids were dropped off at school this morning, and before I head to work, I got to spend a few moments in my back patio retreat (a little bit of heaven on earth for me...where I find some earthly peace).  It was nice, just me, these beautiful new plants that are joining our back patio family, and some cool morning air.  
What a delight!
So now we have expanded our assortment of GREEN in the back...
Strawberries
Mint
Blackberries
Raspberries
Tangerines
Lemons
Dill
Bell Pepper
Hot Peppers
Cucumber
Summer Squash
Spinach
Lettuce
Califlower
and (2) types of Tomatoes

YUMMY!

Not only is this a great way for the kids and I to watch something grow, produce fruit and then continue to survive...even in the hot, dry So. Cal summer (don't worry, I'll be conserving my sink water to water them daily)...but we get to enjoy fresh grown, non-chemically touched fruit and veggies they we helped grow.  
Plus, with two hummingbird feeders out there, we get daily visitors in our back patio retreat to enjoy as well! 

So what can you do today...to give a little bit back to our PLANET today?  
Plant a tree?  
Pick up some trash around your work or home?  
I'd love to hear how you're planning to celebrate Earth Day today!

I was not paid to feature this post! I was not compensated in any way by posting about plants I purchased on my own accord, or the celebration of Earth Day 2015.
