Cherry tomatoes are still green, but there. Lots more lettuce up. Peppers are healthy, goji plant is healthy (thanks Queenie). New hops are coming up. Snap peas are half eaten and will likely be taken out next week.

Even my peach tree is coming around despite the nasty peach curl earlier this year. Phew!

for the seemingly fussy plants we've got flowers on our wisteria vines!!!

Funny thing is, I've got friends in the southern US that consider it almost a weed cause it grows so prolifically

in some regions down there...they think I'm a little bat poop crazy for wanting it here...lol.

Now that it's established it is kinda scary how fast it grows. Lol


After ten years + of frustration, pampering and fussing...our first fledgling blooms...

I am at a loss of what to do with my ever present too blasted many Tay Berry canes and Bosen Berry Canes.

It's always a struggle, Slootman, if you get a large area prepared in your "back forty" you're more than welcome to them.
If Slootman doesn't want them, it's open territory for someone who does.

I'd happily pay for some canes of both berries Madame Queen!!

Keep me posted...

I always give them away. :D

I'll see what Sloot has to say, and the way they are this year, there might be some for two people. I think Sloot and I talked about more canes though.

I'm not sure, I have a mystery plant in my front yard that I thought was one thing but might be Monkshood. I'll google it.

What I have is not Monk's Hood.

But I do have a mystery plant that looks like a cantaloupe gone "gangster."
It has cantaloupe looking leaves, yellow flowers that turn into prickly little spheres.
I can't decide if I want it just as a conversation piece or if I should kill it with fire.

I also have a dilemma of certain areas of my front garden being disasterous bare spots. Like as if what I really need to do is get in there with a shovel, remove it ALL and restart.

Thank you anyway. I found Foxglove seeds and Lupine. I will bee searching local as it is always best to be seasoned.

I'd be up for a seed exchange or plant exchange... if anyone else is???? I'm starting with a new plot so all I have is some ground cover and irisis. I am thinking of trying a larger fairy garden so thustly I'm searching for certain plants.

Come over and see how Sapiglossis would work out for a Fairy Garden. PM me if you're up to meeting a castanetter in the evening either Wed/Thurs/Friday after 6 pm. I've got seeds galore, plants galore that will need divided. Esp. xeriscape plants.

And Barney, Sloot and I agreed you're next in line for berry canes. Sent the PM, k?

Heads UP!

The garden center at Independent at Capri Mall is now in the process of closing out. I got some sweet new to me plants and am even giving Fox Glove one more try.

They've got LOTS of tomato plants, bulbs, strawberry plants and for some reason tonnes of purple petunias.
