Remember back in March when Thomas decided he wanted to be an urban farmer?
Well, his work has paid off. We had the greenest lawn in the whole neighborhood.
|I decided to plant some Fuchsia from little starts. And my goal is to winter them. We will see if they come back next year!|
|This is the evidence that Thomas is outside working.|
|We started our garden from seed and at least half of it is growing!|
|Strawberries in the hanging baskets.|
|My very own kiwi vine!|
|And that my friends is a kiwi!|
|These buddies came back from last Easter.|
|And this is our apple tree.|
|You have to have words of encouragement right?|
|Rhubarb, that I think I have now killed. I need to figure out something better for this stuff. I LOVE rhubarb!|
|My 1 asparagus fern in all my herbs.|
|The sunflower just didn't quite want to give up his seed.|
|Need a little help here. Grow budies! Grow!|
|My oregano has survived for 2 years now! And this poinsettia is left over from Christmas! What!?!?!|
|I only have 3 aloe plants now, but they are going strong!|
And this is what it looks like 2 months later in July.
|Green onions, spinach, carrots, lettuce, parsley, and way at the end, brussel sprouts.|
|Sunflowers, green beans, sweet peas, radishes, onions, turnips, and our little bit of color, marigolds.|
|Cucumbers, squash, tomatoes, rosemary, cilantro, and a whole barrel full of herbs with an asparagus fern.|
|I just love these bulbs! I only had them on half of the bricks last year, so I added them in the spring. And they attract bees for the veggies!|
|My favorite little hiding place in my backyard. And yes, we inherited a palm tree.|
It is a good thing Thomas is around, because let me tell you how often I remember to water. This garden would not survive with out that man and his green thumb.
And by the way, can someone please get it in my head that I need to thin out my garden? I have a really hard time with that concept. I seriously need it hammered in my head.
