Good Gardening Morning! I
It is our second garden party of the season and today I am sharing my real working
vegetable garden and a few flower beds with you all.
I spend several hours a day in my gardens, weeding, watering, trimming, fertilizing, disease control, bug control and sometimes eating some sweet peas too!
First up I wanted to share these darling bright eyed sunflowers they have grown tall and sturdy from seeds.
I decided to try a different variety this year, these sunflowers are intended to be used in
They grow about 3 feet tall and have medium size blooms.
This is my first year to grow Tomatillo Plants, I have two of them, you can see the tiny fruit forming now.
I will be making some wonderful salsa with them in just a short time.
Every garden really should have some Nasturtiums, they are edible too.
They are super easy to grow and add such vibrant color, next to them you will see some
Great for kiddos to grow too as they are so hardy and grow quickly.
In the garden now are the garden peas to the right, center row beet greens, to the left
tomato and pepper plants.
Beyond that are the pole beans, corn, watermelon, squash and lavender.
This week will be having some beet greens.
I still can’t decide if we will have them in a salad or steamed.
I scored big this last week on this Fiddle Leaf Fig.
You do know that these house plants are thee plant to have, right?
I stumbled upon mine at our local Home Depot, they had only 6 of them, so I grabbed this one as fast as I could.
Our roses are really taking off and I will tell you why I think they are.
I scatter about a half cup of Bone Meal around the plant, work it in and then water it in.
Bone Meal is a super food – a phosphate that roses really need.
We moved into our new home a week or so before Christmas, this past year.
We had these four hydrangeas put in as part of our landscape, no sooner than they went in, we got a frost that wasn’t predicted and every one of the leaves froze and fell off.
I thought for certain that these hydrangeas were a goner, but low and behold they came back to life and look at them now.
I found this little terracotta hen pot at a fantastic organic store in Mesquite Texas.
It is such a hassle to drive to this store, but it has the coolest things and also my favorite organic garden concoctions.
We have been enjoying peas and strawberries from the garden.
The pole beans are looking good and so is the corn, I suppose that is what will be up next
