I am so tickled to have figs growing here, and then I thought....will they fruit before I die? What a weird thought! But seriously. I am 66, and it dawned on me that I will not live forever, altho I do feel like I am only 17.
O well. I guess when you are a gardener, you believe in tomorrow.
The peppers have blossoms on them an the beets are almost at the thinning stage. I will add the thinned out stems to a salad.
Yesterday we bought five butterfly koi from W-Mart and here are two, swimming alongside one of our goldfish. Here's what they will grow into:
Juliet cherry tomatoes and Mortgage Lifter have fruited.
I've put some flowers in the tubs with the cantaloupe plants, to make them look more than just a bin of dirt.
Daylilies, Stella D'Oro, are blooming, and in the tub, the dahlias are huge, as well as the rutabaga. I planted Stargazer bulbs and 8 of them have shown up, some too close to the rutabaga plants, so I seeded more rutabagas and they sprouted almost overnight. The rain certainly helped.
Abundance! The basil is being overtaken, and perhaps I will move some of them to a sunnier locale. Or not. I have LOTS of basil plants and many more seedlings to find homes for.
All my rootless transplanted hosta have taken hold, even in the sun and are none the worse for wear. Sigh...so happy.
