Does anyone else have a cookbook that looks as battered as this one?! I received it 57 years ago and I would not part with it!
Our David Austin climbing rose bush arrived and we managed to get it planted last night. I sure hope it grows well! I think the roses will be a light pink.
I love this color pink and would have preferred my climbing rose bush to be more this shade but we were lucky to get what we got!
The sweet pepper plant seems to be doing well except for a couple little spots on the leaves. I did spray it with neem.
This is the yard long bean plant that Chris Fisher gave me the seed for two or three years ago. I am so happy it is still living. It is in a 5 gallon pail and what you see around it is cardboard as I am trying to keep Coco from pulling it out and eating the leaves. I will be heartbroken if she does!!!!!!!
In this five gallon pail is a little snap pole bean plant that I just transplanted today. Again the cardboard in back of it and a couple pots of basil is in front of it to try to keep you know who from destroying it!
A Morning Glory plant growing up the obelisk Carol Lambe gave me years ago. It has a little discoloration on the leaves but the next time I use Neem I will squirt some on and see if it helps. If it continues to get the bad spots before I spray the Neem I will have to do something sooner. "Wonderful Gardener" was not too keen on keeping the Obelisk as it looks kind of bad and needs painting but I was not ready to part with it. Besides it gives the rustic look to my yard and when the Morning Glory covers it and blooms I think it will be pretty. Can't wait!
The sugar peas are bravely trying to climb my string!
We found a small water fountain and thought it fit in with our yard. I love to hear the sound of water running when out there.
What do you think? Would this pot be large enough to grow some potatoes in next year?? Well, this is it for this week! Please leave a comment and have a super-duper day!
