Jim decided to build a few more raised beds in place of the original garden. After four inches of rain last week, good choice!
We planted corn, melons, eggplant, and soon will have cucumbers and radishes.
I added the broken stepping stones to avoid getting sucked down into the mud.
More rain is expected next week. Can we have too much of a good thing?
Mostly photos for this Blog.
Decided to do more containers this year. Here are some African daisies (Osteospermum) and Easy wave petunias.
A container from Sullivan’s. For those who live around the KC Metro area, great place to shop on select Saturdays!
Supertunias silverberry. We’ll see how they do in containers.
Clematis – always a sure thing!!
One of the new ‘almost black’ sedums. I was certain it had died last fall, but here it is thriving!
Pink tulips year two. Color me happy!
Alium – also another tried and true returning plant. I always mean to buy more, then think I have too much in this garden!
Can you spot Fat Boy behind the climbing hydrangea? This is year two for the hydrangea and it’s really starting to climb. We’ll have to see whether it decides to flower…
And this is year two for strawberries. Looks like we’ll have lots. Yum!
The yard is starting to look like something! Stay tuned for more raised beds… coming soon!
