Flowers Galore

Category: Village Square | Posted: Tue May 11, 2010 7:15 pm

There's been a lot of activity since January and the garden's in for the most part. Beside planting the vegetable boxes, Many seedlings from the greenhouse have found their way to the flower garden - Zinnias, 4 varieties of Sunflowers and thanks to the local botanical sale of native NC plants, New England Aster (yes, it will grow in the south), Giant Blue Lobelia, Red Bay Tree.
The roses bloomed so joyfully this year! I've had plenty for the house and they just filled the rose bed. Charlie bought 3 trellises for my climbers next to the deck.
The veg garden was started early too and we have several Zucchini in the fridge already. The rest of the boxes hold heading lettuce, Brandywine toms and a variety new to me, Niko, a medium tomato, Brussel Sprouts, cucumbers, sweet peppers, Asparagus, Leeks, Chinese Cabbage, Boc Choy, climbing Beans, Potatoes, a Blueberry and 2 raspberry bushes. Oh, and 3 Cauliflower.
Each year it amazes me how strong and healthy the plants can grow in a storage box and be productive and tasty.

This is great news, GG. It sounds like you have a really good variety.
You know--you really ought to take a couple of pics to show. I would be interested in seeing how your set-up looks.
