The past 2 days I've had cows in my garden when I woke up.
Hopefully the owners of the cows will fix this problem or I'm going to have me some beef, in trade for my garden they are trampling.
On a happier note, here is my new Solomon's Seal blooming.
Here's some pictures.
Night Blooming Cereus
My tomato trays. I've been working on slowly hardening them off.
This is going to be the year of the pepper, which is ok, because I have never been this successful with peppers before. Love grow lights!
These will be golden raspberries! That's some cumin behind it.
Love the color of this lettuce.
Why are my garlic leaves turning yellow like this?
First year Blanda Anemone.
Best looking cabbage here, it was a Bonnie plant given to us.
This was a Bonnie plant last year.
These are from Mara Des Bois seeds I started this year.
Chandler Blueberries planted Fall 2014.
Duke Bluerries planted 2013 from the Tennessee Valey Co-Op. It had Jersey with it but the Jersey died. I can't grow a Jersey Blueberry to save my life. Can't wait to taste these berries again.
This is probably a weed, but I love it.
Blossom on my graphed Fuji, Gala and Yellow Delicious tree bought from the Tennessee Valley Co-Op. I need to take some more pictures of this as it opens.
My Brassica collection is a learning experience, as is anything with gardening! This is the best looking ones we have grown yet.
The hybrid broccoli we planted did not do well at all, but the Purple Sprouting Broccoli took off like a champ! Followed up by DeCicco Broccoli. The Chef's Blend Cauliflower is doing excellent as well, but we are still very early in the season. The Fallstaff Brussels are doing marvelous too!
This is second year rhubarb from root stock. I think it likes it.
This is a Trillum 'Sweet Betsy' from Overhill Nursey, Vonore, TN. I bought this year. It's suppose to be red in the middle. hmmm.
Hopefully these are treasure boxes!
Jacobs Ladder from Overhill Gardens, Vonore, TN.
Wild Ginger from Overhill Gardens.
That's the walk thru the garden for now. Hope y'all are enjoying your beautiful April Showers!
I made my own potting mix today out of necessity. I don't have Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Mix on hand but I do have this cheap stuff.
So here's what I did.
I took my potting mix, sifted out the "chunks" then added the perlite I had on hand. The last picture is the finished product. Hopefully it is good enough that I will get results from my pepper seeds.
This is the 94X70 plot I've tilled for our new garden this year.
Here is the baby broccoli growing so fast.
Here are my dogs cuddling.
