Meanwhile here at home
I planted my twynings Smartie Dahlia tubers in March inside and babied them. They have blooms and are or were so strong and healthy till I decided to move the pots as it was beginning to thunder and rain and spilled over the wagon. I put them back in the pots but I have no hope really for them. Some of the tubers fell off. SO UNHAPPY ABOUT THAT.
I shall see.
I picked a few squash today. This squash picture was from a few days ago.
A few cheery flowers from the yard for the bath in the hall. Yes that is sage green tile put in when house was built in '69. It's in good shape and I like it. Had thought about changing it but I like the color.
Another bloom. This has been blooming a good while now.
My tea rose is blooming
At the garage. Probably way too many plants in here.
A mini rose I picked up from walmart after valentines day.
Cleaning up the azaleas a little. They seem to bloom better when I cut off some long limbs
I know these potatoes in pots are way too many and this is the first time I grew any in pots.
I broke off a piece of rosemary and its rooted in the planter. I think things do really well in this mushroom compost. I will always use it now.
I do like the celery flavor parsley and the tarragon I have been cutting on. The chives behind it are very good and I have cut many of those and dried.
I had to divide the chives here from the ones I have growing in a pot
This lavender I can't bring myself to disturb right now. I do need to move it again. It is now about 8 or 9 years old. It is a hardy plant. Provence it's called.
I planted this last year. It was looking like it was going to die but when the neighbor removed trees, it now is doing great, it loves the sun. I pull off the fragrant petals and wash and dry them stored in the refrigerator. When I get soft purple flowers to pull off the Lavender, I will make some jelly. I rather pull off the purple flowers instead of waiting for them to dry because they are sweet and not as strong as the seed.
My tomato in the pot along with a dill plant I put beside it. These cherry tomatoes are different colors. Orange, yellow and red.
Italian tomatoes and red pepper doing fine so far. I pulled off the lower leaves to keep the air circulating around it nicely.
I didn't have the heart to pull up this lone romaine lettuce I tied at the top to keep it together. It has been in this planter in mushroom compost and dirt for a month maybe two.
oxalis is pretty but it is a weed as far as I am concerned. It will grow any and every where.
Cleaned out the bed here and now will put some shrub and tree dirt with fertilizer and mulch around them
I will have more than this to cut off but it's a start.
Excited to see this hydrangea with a few blooms. Will see if it is going to bloom red.
Grapevine I really didn't think would grow. I originally was going to let it grow on a trellis over the gate but changed my mind. Now it's growing nicely and it's green grapes. Will move after the season I guess.
I hope he is not reading this on his lunch break and then give me a call to place potatoes in his. Hmmm.
