My First Watermelon

I have been having so much fun this year growing vegetables that I have never grown before. We usually have tomatoes and this year they did so well. But this year I decided to plant some watermelon.

Gardening can be a Mystery

I love to garden, but sometimes I don't think my garden loves me back! Do you ever feel that way? You try and try to get your plants to do well and they just don't want to cooperate. 

I talk to them, I baby them and still no luck. They are OK, but not doing fabulous. Do your plants do this to you? 

I like to think I have a green thumb, but sometimes I think it is only half green!

My Little Herb Garden

As the weather warms up, many of us are thinking about planting flowers or vegetables. Are you planting?  I don't plant many vegetables except for tomatoes, but I do like my herbs.

Do you like fresh herbs? I love being able to go outside and get fresh herbs to cook with.

Garden by the Barn

I have been trying to get my gardens ready for summer. I always seem to be adding mulch when the weather is hot. We are unseasonably warm here today - 95. Quite hot for April. I got the mulch in a few weeks ago, before I got sick and I didn't get to finished decorating. So today, while my husband is in Italy, I decided to finish them.

Plumeria Blooms

When you are under the weather, there is nothing like some sunshine to cheer you up. I have been fighting this bronchitis for over a week and frankly I am tired of feeling bad and coughing. The coughing is the worst part. Yuck!

Although the sun has been shining, it is these lovely plumeria blooms that are brightening up my day. I grew this plant from a cutting and now it is blooming. I am so excited.

Saving those bulbs!

I was at Joann fabrics yesterday and just had to stop in at one of my favorite stores - Home Goods. Of course I didn't need anything, but thought I would just look at what was on Clearance. There they were, on the bottom shelf. Bulbs sprouting out of their boxes.
