Beans, zucchini, and flowers

Here’s the latest from the garden:

I’ve got eight bareroot roses soaking in a Rubbermaid bin in the back yard right now, waiting to be planted in the holes we dug this afternoon.

I got the eggplant in the ground and replaced a couple of tomato plants that didn’t make it for some reason.

Sunflowers are finally planted, and Ron put mulch cloth behind them so we won’t have to weed between the plants and the house.

The cardinal climber and morning glory sprouts are looking healthy; I thinned them today. My zucchini, one of the cucumber varieties, and the Trail of Tears beans have all started to come up. I haven’t checked on the watermelon seeds I planted in my hay bales behind the back fence.

Something purple and gorgeous is blooming behind the fence. I don’t know what it is, but it’s really pretty. I’ll try to get a picture and an ID on it soon.

We still have a long way to go, but the yard is slowly starting to live up to its potential.

  1. you inspired me…. I actually planted flower seeds yesterday here and there in my postage stamp of a yard. haven’t done that in many many years!!!

  2. Your yard sounds exciting. Growing things from seed is really the only way to get that really earthy, gardener experience. I try to grow all of my own fruits and vegetables. I just ordered these tomatoes and peppers.
