Let me give you a tour....
Here is our tomato box. We actually planted them about 2 weeks ago during a break in the rain. I read online that to keep weeds down put down wet newspaper. We went one step farther and added some extra dirt just to keep the newspaper from flying away. I haven't seen any weeds here and it's been raining every day since we put these babies in. Maybe now that the sun is out they will start to take off. We also have 2 grape plants that reside in here as well.
First....let me just say I like to think I have a green thumb. However basil and I do not get along. We never have. The one pictured above on the left is trying to humor me... I think. We have my indoor oregano and basil. There are 2 pots in the kitchen window. The oregano LOVES it here.
My outdoor oregano with a Gerbera Daisy. I love having homedried oregano on hand. Just in case you were wondering. And I like the fresh smell.
Our pretty flowers inviting you to our house - which may or may not be clean depending on if people are actually doing their chores on any given day. So...come and be surprised! I know I will be! lol
Our garden plot. The white stuff all around is slug bait. I was all done and looking at what I did and I started laughing. Remember watching The Spiderwick Chronicles and the white stuff they had all the way around the house to keep the goblins out? This reminded me of that. Except we are keeping the slug goblins out of the garden and keeping the worms in.
Just another view. Russell was my knight in shining armor helping me till one more time and planting seeds and driving stakes into the ground.
We are hoping to have a nice harvest of the following....
jack-o-laterns for carving
strawberries on the deck
grapes- won't be ready this year
I will be putting in pole peas on the deck. Need more soil first.
