Garden 2012: Update 3

5.30.2012

My garden has grown since last time I mentioned it!

I've added some pretty pansies in all of their purple velvety goodness. A can is a great planter in a pinch, of course. They'd been out of water for almost a week and I didn't have time to thrift a planter, so I dug around in my recycling, drilled a hole in the bottom and there you have it!

Muah!


I have a different variety in my planter basket. So pretty, but fading away. I think the direct sun is too much.


Adding some green to the other side of the "yard" with some hosta. The sorry looking ones on the left should look a bit better in the next few years. (I hope!) And, did you know that if slugs start eating your hosta, you can just "plant" a pie plate of beer next to them and they'll drown in it?! Awesome. Now I just need to find me some beer. And some slugs.


Sweet corn!


My beans are so big already - June hasn't even started!


My first pea blossom.


And finally a tomato turning red!


And, of course, I can't forget my sweet garden helper. She "waters" the garden with me and falls on the fence smashing my beans, but hey, I don't mind. I love help. Especially hers.


Our very own sweet pea.



Having any luck in your gardens? Flowers? Herbs? Tell me about it! I'd love to hear.

  1. my herb garden is doing pretty well. All except the lavender-- which went crazy when I first put it in then just as suddenly dried up and died last week, but everything else is thriving. :)
