All of the perenials in my flower bed came back this year, which is surprising since we had a really dry winter. I spent most of my money on plants for the front porch and the patio, so I didn't add very many to the flowerbed. It was so wonderful to play in the dirt again. LOL We skipped spring and have gone into the middle of summer. Spending alot of time in the pool, sipping a cold one, and listening to celtic CD's on the boombox. Life is good.

Take care and have a good evening.

I was wondering if anyone's had any luck with container gardening vegtables. I'm gonna see if I can't throw together a pot of cucumbers and see if I can't get them to wind up a stake rather than sprawl. Is it too late to start tomatoes and cukes from seed if I do attempt it?


Only problem I would have would be the neighbor kids destroying/dumping the pots.

Sore and sunburned. Laying down newspaper and mulch to take care of the grass and weeds that envaded my flowerbed early this spring. Am really out of shape since I started working in an office.

I'm going to have to ask my landlord if planter boxes are allowed. I'd kinda doubt it, but there's no harm in asking.

The flowers in the first bed came back with a vengence this year. The lavender is most beautiful. MUST GET MORE LAVENDER!!!

I don't have a garden myself (planter boxes are not allowed in my lease), but I helped my folks with their annuals a couple of weeks ago. The impatiens, snapdragons and petunias are doing really good judging by the last time I was over there the other day.

Valpal, might I suggest you go to a local lawn and garden store and see what they recommend? I know there are some remedies to your problem. When in doubt, ask an expert.

We have some nice flower beds and shrubs here on the Henderson clan half acre. I just got out today and weeded most of the beds- mulch keeps our weeding at a minimum, still, it took me 3 hrs. to get 'em cleaned up.
I am having a terrible time this year with pony packs from the nursery. I can't get lobelia or verbania to live! Normally it's no problem- the kids have a rabbitry for 4H so there's plenty of fertilizer. I usually will use some miracle grow potting soil mixed with some composted rabbit manure dug into the ground as a flower bed for new transplants. We have adobe clay and hardpan, so wherever I decide to plant, the ground hs to be "fixed up" before putting anything in it.

My son is taking ornamental horticulture classes in college so it's nice to have someone with some schooling to answer the questions- why is this dying? What are these brown spots from? Will this take full sun?

I dug out half a bed of geraniums and put pansies in there for a good view from the kitchen window. They took off like wildfire and were doing great until the kids hung a bird feeder over them from the limb of the crepe myrtle tree. The seeds from the feeder have kinda taken over the pansie bed! I am not sure what's in the bird feed, but the pansies don't like it.

My son and I took some pics of us in our kilts doing some extreme Scottish gardening with claymors, ttarg, and basket hilt broadsword. I'll try to get them re-sized so I can upload to the forum.

Does anyone know how tall okra gets before it starts producing.
The plants are mutants, I think. Leaves the size of dinner plates
but no pods, not even a flower. Is 6 foot to tall?

Nice Place here wink.gif

This spring i've started with my own herbage garden. It was lot of fun: I had to build a lot of supporting walls and dig a hole for a small "bird bath".
Through the last days of springtime i planted all the little scions. It was very nice to see them all grow.
Now i've:
-lavender
-peppermint
-melissa
-sage
-parsley
-chive
-basil
-dill
-thyme
-rosemary
-many sunflowers and a melder tree

(Hope the names are right, because i've had to translate them.)

Sometimes the rain or some animal disturbed my work. But at all it was so good to see everything grow up, to fade and sometimes grow up again. My garden has always been changing. I look forward making my garden again.

Well, I was over at my parents' house yesterday, helping them get their garden & flowerbeds going. We planted petunias and impatiens in the flowerbeds around the trees and corn, lettuce, tomatoes and green peppers in the garden.

I did most of the backbreaking work, tilling up the soil and such. That Garden Weasel (can you say "As Seen On TV" biggrin.gif ) my dad bought last year really does the trick, although my knee was so sore last night I could barely move.

I put in radishes and onions awhile back which are doing well. Everything else will go in soon now that we are past danger of frost and snow. The growing season in Colorado is unfortunately pretty short. Except for the weeds. wink.gif

This week, my roses are starting to bloom. The back garden has about twenty and the front garden has six. The ones in front are all heirloom varieties and are ramblers...am hoping someday they will cover the ugly fence that I should replace.

I was wondering...does anyone know how to keep squirrels out of one's garden? They like to take one bite out of something, throw it on the ground and sample the next one. They wrecked havoc last year on my tomatoes and sweet corn.
