Oh goodness. So much to read and catch up on. That will teach me to be away 5 days! LOL I had a lovely visit though with my brother, his wife and my nephew. My sister in law is a master gardener so I worried about her seeing my hodgepodge of plants. But she was kind and the only thing she really mentioned was that she would love to have the fruit tress that I do.
Hi back to Queenmomcat,Teka, and Twohobbies.
Thanks to all who shared the beautiful pictures! They make me smile.
WenchLor what is an African Blackberry? Love the baby geese!
Wren444 there are tons of redbuds in Oklahoma. BGut I am lucky enough to have the bluebonnets too. However the ones here pale in comparison to what we would see along the highways of Texas.
Flaviarose, I am with you on using the straw as mulch. My garden soil is pretty darned good considering I live where the red clay abounds. It sure cuts down on the weeding too. I would rather sit or harvest than weed for sure.
Mommyof2 have you tried making refrigerator pickles? I made some two years ago and used the hot peppers from my garden to spice them up.
Lucy55 I am gently envious of the tropical fruits you can grow. My mouth is watering.
Jazzy, what vibrant colors!
I got a few of the flowering plants into the ground this weekend but we had some rain (yeah!) Thursday and Friday so the veggie garden itself is still too wet to plant. I am gone several of the evenings during the week so seem to only have the weekends lately to get things done. I tire out so easily and need both those. days. The forecast is calling for more rain this weekend. I won't complain too hard because we have had a lot of drought years and I appreciate any rain we can get. It is nice to look out and still see everything green. Hubby doesn't mind the drought times so much because he doesn't have to cut the grass as often. Geesh
I am excited because my old metal shed is rusting out and I get to look for a replacement. Woohoo. I want a cute wooden building that is much larger so I don't have to stack everything in a mess. I have lots of solar lights and don't always put them all out at once. Plus my older gnomes that need repainting don't get thrown out either. One day when I can maybe retire I will repaint them and set them back outside.
The sun is gorgeous today and I wish I could be out there planting!!
