I come from gardener genes…until this year I thought they skipped over me. Well we are having a harvest of tomatoes, all kinds of peppers and eggplants. I’m not sure what to do with all of it. If anyone knows any good eggplant recipes pass them along. I’m seeing some homeade salsa in my future….
When we were engaged our pastor recommended we be married for a year, then grow a plant for a year, then get a dog for a year…then consider kids. We did it all backwards. Our yard was a clean slate as far as landscaping goes, so last year I TOILED to start a flower garden in the front.
Here is was in September 08:
And now July 2009…I can’t believe how much it has grown!
I have to post these flowers because Chris refers to them as my ‘weeds’. They just turned yellow.
For the past months they have been about 6 feet tall and just green…they did look like huge weeds until now.
Just to be honest…these are the flower pots as you walk into the house. This is what all my flowers have looked like in years past. Evidently I can’t keep potted plants alive, so I will stick to the planted in the ground kind. Sad.
