I promised pictures of my gardening efforts, so here you go.
Two weeks ago my garden looked like this:
And then last week it looked like this:
And yesterday I took these pictures:
The initial transplantation was a bit traumatic for the pepper and tomato plants, but now they are looking much healthier. And the beans are coming up! My other gardening areas that are against the house are not getting as much sun and are much slower in sprouting, or at least I hope that is the case. I did notice a radish seedling poking through, but so far no squash or lettuce or chard. They will probably all appear while I am gone and hopefully Bill will be faithful in watering them!
My flowers are doing well also. I posted pictures of my snapdragons last week. I also have daisies along the back wall of the property
Do you like the pot? It is a wastebasket that I bought for 99 cents at the thrift store!
And petunias on the patio
And geraniums on the patio
The geranium pot was slightly more than 99 cents!
Along the back wall is also a window box of bright yellow marigolds (large blossoms) and another window box of mixed cut flower seeds, which are beginning to poke up out of the dirt.
I have plans to grow an herb garden with some mints for tea and smoothies, but have put off obtaining any supplies until after I am back from my trip to Alabama. May is going to be family visiting time! I only wish Bill was able to go, but hopefully he’ll be able to make the next trip.
