I have no blooms left except on the yellow rose bush that's confused. They don't last when they're picked, so they'll stay on the bush. Perhaps we'll have rose hips.
Teka - my seedlings now:
That a weed in the middle, I was sending a picture to my DIL to identify! I have about 7-10 cucumbers immerging, and the cherry tomato plants are huge!
Teka - yes, she said "IT's a weed! Pull it!!" LOL. There were tons of them in there
My petunias are having a late fall revival. No hard frost yet
Red oak in full color
When do you pick cucumbers?
Those look delicious! I'd pick them now if you can use them or give them to someone.
I'm going to try pickling the smaller ones
Still no frost here
It's been amazing how long the pansies have lasted but a snow storm is coming
Aren't the white ones petunias? We can buy winter pansies here. They can put up with our milder winters most years. I don't think petunias do well here. I don't see them for sale very often.
I planted multi color carrots and the greens got to be about 18 inch high. They were starting to pop out of the ground so I pulled a couple of the more colorful ones. They look deformed! What happend?
Whoops yes petunias
Those birds are really fluffed up trying to stay warm. Good shot.
Love these pics! Down to 5 degrees tonight. Wake me when it’s April and the garden season begins. :
This is our state bird, the roadrunner
I always wondered what a roadrunner really looked like - Thanks Jazzygirl
A little nuthatch hanging out.
In action road runners look just like the cartoons. I had never seen one up close.
Here's another one of a morning sun bath
Anyone know why your carrots might come out looking more like a turnip or like it grew skinny legs? The seeds I got were the multi color carrots, but they all came out looking like anything but a carrot. I had pictures, but I apparently deleted them
Might have to do with the soil. We have to dig deep and add sand to the mix to grow them here. Maybe they're hitting a piece of clay and growing around it.
Wren44 interesting. We took over the plot at the community garden, I helped the woman before me remove her plants, I added organic soil, tilled it and solarized it for the summer to kill any microbes that may eat away at roots. None of them came out "normal". Very weird, but they tasted great roasted!
We got about 4
Snow is melting
