Yes, Dave sold the Expedition last night and combining the two sales, made a 110% profit. What a guy.
I, on the other hand, am a do do. I didn't carefully read the seed packet of these Blue Lake green beans and planted POLE beans! I have no way of making them climb poles at this stage of their growth, and I don't have poles either, so I bit the bullet and pulled the mess out. I still have a huge patch of bush beans, so no worry.
My veggie garden looks pitiful but there are fruits coming along anyway, unless you count the peppers which are struggling again this year. Why do I keep trying? There just isn't enough sun or heat or something to make peppers do well in my raised beds.
Back to Things that are GONE.
My Julia Child rose bush which I transplanted in early May has leaned over and looks horrible.
I waited til most of the blooming was over, and then got out my shears and chopped off the leaning section.
And now the new shape, and all the branches in the burn pile. yay!
What is gone from this picture is all the blooming purple larkspur which looked so good until it got over four feet tall and fell down when it rained, and stayed down. What a mess. It had to go.
The recently purchased sale hosta and heuchera along with some transplants from Dave's Memorial Swamp got planted in its place. There is still more empty space in that bed...Hello Wal-Mart.
I am so relieved that the mess I made last year in Dave's Memorial
