Quick update: everything is still alive! (remember, with me you just never know....)
The one thing I like abt these updates is it helps me to see how much my plants have grown. Seeing them every day, day after day, makes it seem as if they aren't doing much at all. However I was organizing my pictures this AM and I could see how much they've all grown!! Makes me so happy.
And apparently all I needed to do was some trash talk to get my tomatoes to move along. Tomato plant #1 is coming along quite nicely.
There are still two tomatoes on the bush
with friends expecting to arrive shortly.
Tomato plant #2 has filled in
and I see the beginnings of blossoms starting to form.
Tomato plants #3 and #4 have just shown me up!!
#3 has really taken off! And while #4 is still lagging behind, there's all kinds of new grown on it!!
We had some good soaking rain during the week and I think the nutrients in the rain made the difference. City water just isn't the same.
My white petunias are flourishing
while the pink ones are continuing to struggle.
They must be different kinds of petunias because even the extras I planted out front show the same growth.
I didn't even know I planted white ones in this batch until they bloomed!!
The geraniums are continuing to grow
and the chives have shot up!!!
The bougainvillea is doing really well
I don't even water it anymore. It's doing great on it's own, another reason I love it so!
As usual I have my helpers.
Princess was a no show, I think she was napping in Baby Girl's room and didn't realize we were outside playing.
Another supervisor showed up and was curious as to my progress.
I think as long as I keep the yard full of his favorite bugs, he'll be thrilled.
While there are parts of my yard I don't like, I'm really thrilled with how my plants are doing. Thanks for stopping by and getting your gardening fix.
