general garden musings

Category: general garden | Posted: Wed Jul 30, 2008 11:25 pm

here are some pictures of my little bits of pots in the garden it isnt all of them but these are the ones i have so far

this is our sunflower these are great we have a number of them grown from bird seed of my moms this is the only one thats started top open out

this is the maigold anniversary gift off my mom the flowers are soon dropping because of the heat of the last few days but they have been wonderful and the bees and insects love them

these are two pots of flowers by the kitchen door on on the right with the maigold rose in and the smaller one has geranium fuscia and busy lizzies in
they wilt so fast and need plenty of water ive found

this is another pot by the wall surrounded by a potted sycamore that leaves are burnt the fuscia is in its second year and looked like a bunch of dead sticks then all of a sudden it came to life and this is the result the geranium and busy lizzies are suffocated

this is my medium to small sized tomato plant it isnt looking healthy i am going to feed her and see if she picks up the fruit are swelling now but the leaves look very unhappy
My husband has promised me for next year he will build me a raised vegetable plot along the back wall as it gets the most sun i have a very small back garden and is in need of attention i will pester him and try get this veg garden built so i can plant some lovely things for next year im thinking carrots and parsnips and lettuces and beetroot maybe radishes and leeks i am so new to all this i will have to do some searching find out what space and conditions things need id also like to grow tomatos again in pots and maybe if possible sweet peas in pots. we also plan on potatoes in sacks and if i possibly could id like blueberry bush and raspberry canes my research must begin soon

You have some really lovely flowers in your garden. I especially like your marigold rose.

I hope you get the raised bed that you want for your veggies as there is nothing better than the taste of home-grown produce.

Very pretty pots. I find if I think positive, those veggie plots materialize.
