Garden Report: Warm and Wet around here, perfect for seeds!

The weather around here has been amazing for germination.

Planted the Carrots and Onions in frame 2 on May 3rd

We have had lovely sunny days mixed with several days and nights of rain.

Not so go for the arthritis but great for the garden. The tomatoes and the pepper are

beginning to flower.  They needed staking earlier in the week, but are still a little short to have a full

cage around them. Have to go out and buy some.  

Frame 1 Tomatoes and peppers and sage

As mentioned in my previous post, I planted beans in frame 3 on the 21st of June.

Everything was fine till I was researching the varieties that I planted. French dwarf dual, can be used as string or 

fresh beanlets, Yum. However did you know that Butterbeans are just lima beans in disguise, Yuck! Glad I only planted 4 seeds. Anyone want

Those seeds on the left with the glasses and false nose are Lima beans!

some Lima beans free…

As far as weeds and flowers, the weeds are just popping up all over the garden. We have instituted morning weed

patrol. If it looks like a weed pull it!

Flowers are coming along beautifully. Years ago, my mother gave me some Sundrops from her garden. I have transplanted patches of them


from two different gardens, they are indestructible will grow just about anywhere and

rival daisy’s for cheerfulness.
