Hey y'all! My husband and I moved into our first home a couple months ago. We live in Texas. There were already two pre-landscaped areas on the property so I decided to try my hand at gardening. My mother always had flowers, saplings, and shrubs when I was growing up, but I never saw myself gardening. Little did I know how inspired I'd get just seeing that the areas were already made for me. Lol I've got some portulacas/moss roses and another flower (I can't remember the name of) in the ground already, as well as a few succulents. I also bought seeds for two types of watermelons (crimson sweet and bush sweet baby), turnips, bachelor's buttons, hollyhock, aubrieta, and bluebonnets. Of course, there are also gnomes standing watch throughout. Both watermelons are doing well, the turnips are thriving, and the bachelor's buttons and hollyhock have wonderful sprouts! The aubrieta seeds haven't begun to sprout yet, and they've been planted for just under two weeks now in a starter pot. I'm wondering if they're just slow to sprout or if I've done something wrong? Anyway, I'm excited to share this journey with people and get some advice along the way!
