Bummer! first you water, then you get overwatered.

I have too much shade to grow sun loving veggies. I grow a lot of flowers and in these months I get many cut flowers and have bouquets in the living room, kitchen and bathroom.

My garden suffers from shade as well, but it produced enough for us. Next year I'm going to cut back some of the shade that grows in the form of mimosa trees (they grow wild in my yard). I adore that I have tomatoes and cucumbers to eat as a salad every day for lunch. I have been living on them for weeks...which is not good because I'm supposed to eat a ton of protein and the only protein I am eating is from my shake every day.

Your house and gardens are so lush and beautiful!!! We are in such a drought in Wis. Everyone is scrambling for hay. There are warnings about hay scams on line. I am growing Chiles, tomatoes and cilantro in pots
As long as I water them they are doing great! Fun because I do a lot of Latin cooking. Our pastures are crunchy brown and hard

It is some kind of plum tree. an ornamental plum, though it does drop a few plums on the drive way from time to time. It has been sagging further and further down and forward and will have to be cut down in the future, if it doesnt' rip right out of the ground the next time we have a heavy snowfall.


Today is so cold outside that I actually put the heat on to take off the chill, just for a few minutes. it was 59 degrees out, at noon! Ridiculous!

I would post some pictures but they're not very interesting, seeing as I have big holes waiting to be filled with good earth and then with nice plants...

Shall post later if I ever manage to drag my dad to the nursery to buy the roses and lavender.

A ride a day keeps the worries away!
