I hope here is a picture of our first zucchini this year. It tasted so good. Grilled with some meat.

We were so excited yesterday to get our first zucchini. It is a zucchini squash and about 10 inches long. biggest we have had.
I just hope we get lots more. We have already cooked it on the grill with bell peppers, onions, and steaks. good!

Heat and tomatoes
Category: garden | Posted: Sun Jun 10, 2012 7:38 pm
The heat and lack of rain is now doing a number on my tomato plants. One is looking really healthy, the other has some dead leaves at the bottom. We have a soaker hose in the garden and put it on every night.
Any suggestions on a different solution?

Almost finished- storm a'coming
Category: garden | Posted: Mon Apr 30, 2012 2:32 am
I have worked all day yesterday and today, putting out my flowers. I cut back on the veg garden from last year, as we are under water restrictions here.
You can hand water or soaker hose, which we have in the veg garden. I have put out snapdragons, superbells, salvia, dianthus, daisies, and a few others I don't remember the names.
And mother nature has just released a very good rain, but the golf ball sized hail is coming and we have a tornado just south of town. More storms coming. We'll see what the morning leaves us.

Spring color, finally
Category: garden | Posted: Sun Apr 22, 2012 8:53 pm
Finally, I have been able to plant some spring flowers in my pots. So far, saliva, sol begonias, impatiens, geramiums, zinnias, ganzias, and more to come. I have been getting rid of old, faded or cracked pots in favor of new pots I found on sale.
I have put out my tomatoes, peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, rosemary. My husband put a sealant on our wood fence today, but I'm tired of the boring fence. Need a way to spruce it up.

We got most of our work done today. I got the bed amended, planted the tomatoes. Husband put up the iron trellis, and it all looked great. Then about 9p.m., it hailed. Marble size hail about 10-15 min. Plants look okay, thought about throwing my body over them, but just a thought. This is living in West Texas/south plains.

Getting Spring work started
Category: garden | Posted: Sat Apr 14, 2012 5:00 pm
Today, I'm probably going to be too tired to do all I want and need to do. We have more beautiful days during the week, but have to be at work of course. Weekends usually only have one good day, if that.
Today's plan: till the raised veg garden, put in manure, compost, cotton burrs, and admended soil and put up the wrought iron grill work for sides around tomato plants. (last part is for my husband to do).
then put out the tomato plants. Next clean off potting bench area and put out some flower pots. We have large yard and have several different areas to sit and enjoy the outside. I try to make each area a little different but blend with the other areas.
Once I figure out how to upload photos, I'll share.
I'm luck to have a husband who enjoys the outside also.
