The garden looks a little crazy right now.
New to gardening,
we may not have planned it as well as we thought.
The potatoes have taken over.
Perhaps we planted too many.
Perhaps we have not a clue what we are doing.
We're hoping to see them flower and fall over soon
which will tell us that they are ready to harvest.
The lettuce is looking lovely though
and looks like it may bolt soon
so I picked some for a salad tonight.
They are soaking right now in my kitchen sink
in a bath of vinegar and cold water.
I'm not really fooled into thinking
that this will take care of every single tiny bug.
We will probably have a couple of bugs mixed in
with our croutons.
You're not coming for dinner?
I'm having issues with our strawberry plants.
I don't think I provided enough drainage
and I should have mixed a little sand in with the soil.
See that strawberry?
That's what we are getting out of these.
I've planted some sweet potato vines in
a wine barrel in the yard.
Hopefully, we will have a nice trailing vine
I thought for the longest time that
this thing was a weed
but stopped myself from pulling it out several times.
the beautiful Gerbera Daisies opened up.
So glad I didn't pull it out.
We bought three gardenia bushes
and planted them under the kitchen window
where they get plenty of shade.
Hard to come by here in Arizona.
Such pretty fragrant blooms!
We're looking at a high of 84 degrees today.
Low 90's for the weekend.
Can't wait to use this
for the first time!
Have a Happy Tuesday!!
