My flower bed has sprung some sprouts! I put a variety of annuals in this bed and they seem to be doing well.  Today I put some fertilizer and mulch down. just to have some cut flowers around.  It faces the dining room windows.  Hopefully, I will be able to look out on nice bunches of flowers sometime this summer.

Here are my beds.  There are three now; I added an extra one a few weeks ago because I realized I had run out of room for my tomatoes and hot peppers and pole beans.   So, one more bed!  But I did not use compost in this one and you can really tell the difference.  The soil does not drain as well and these veggies are growing much slower.  Also, I made a blunder when planting my peppers next to my tomatoes which are next to my beans.  The tomatoes are shading the beans 🙁  Also, the tomatoes need lots of water, but the hot peppers do not.  Since the water does not drain well, it is rotting my hot peppers!
