Upcycled Planting for Earth Day!

Whaaaaat?! Two posts in one day?! Crazy talk! But I’m super pumped about these so I want to share them ASAP. Chicago does that thing there it’s freaking freezing for so much of the year that our growing season doesn’t really officially start until Mother’d Day. But Earth Day is a good day to start planning and planting heartier stuff. For me, I like to start inside and work my way out. So I ventured to my local garden center on Wednesday and picked up some succulents and herbs to grow inside.

If you have been on pintrest at all, succulents are EVERYWHERE right now. And with good reason. They’re super pretty and [relatively] low maintenance if you know what you’re doing.

Started out with a mess of stuff. Three succulents, chives, oregano, and sage. All repotted into one of those adorable containers. I didn’t get any shots of the herbs yet because I want to give them a chance to take to their new homes before I share them. So here’s a bunch of photos of the succulents instead.

This weekend we get to go start working on our vegetable plot! I can’t wait to share all the details about that. It’s going to be a ton of fun!
