Gifts from the Garden
Yesterday was clean up the veggie garden day. Once the distracting weeds were out of the way, I discovered two more melons and tiny cukes starting. four Heritage peppers, and cabbage were added. Hope it's not too late. The spinach never got very big, but enough for a salad of baby leaves, yum.
My good husband put up a trellis over my back door and I've planted Carolina Jessamine next to it. It has a fabulous scent when in bloom. Can't wait. The Will Goodwin Clematis is climing up a trellis in a container on my front porch. Will it bloom this summer ? It's a new plant.
Gardens are popping up all over in our neighborhood. Where there were plain lots are now Petunia beds, stone walks and porch containers, even another small veggie plot. Charlie says "we've started a craze here" and I so hope so. Our yards look so much happier.
We're getting new neighbors. Wish us another gardener.

I can feel the perspiration too! I was out in mine weeding Mon. & Tue. It's a good feeling when it's done. Pat yourself on the back GG. Of course, you'll be out there again shortly, but it'll be good for a little while.
I'm glad you found new plants growing under all the old.It will great having wonderful plants all around your neighborhood.
I'm so pleased for you. The veggie patch sounds like it's doing well, and congratulations on your trellis. I do hope that you've managed to infect the neighbours with the gardening bug. Up here most properties have some shrubs, lilacs and a few perennials in a small border somewhere, and lots and lots of lawn. I wish for a garden craze to hit the neighbourhood.
