Things are going swimmingly here in my little corner of the world. All of the tomatoes, onions, and herbs are taking off…
Almost all the tomatoes have their true leaves now. They are even starting to smell like tomatoes!!
Today I thinned out the weakest starts to give way for the strongest. As you can see, it’s pretty obvious who’s winning the “I’m the best plant” game in this tiny peat pot.
After snipping back the little ones, I used bamboo skewers to help support the stems.
The onions might not look like much right now, but they’re doing their thing. The ones I bought last year looked about the same and grew big fat onions. I’m feeling pretty confident that they are happy.
Meanwhile, back at the garden….
Mountain Man is working hard to clean up and revive our front yard.
I couldn’t believe these primroses came back. Aren’t they annuals? Looks like somethings been munching on them to… hmmmm.
The croci popped up about a month ago and haven’t quit yet.
Remember I said I was going to cut back the rhodies?
Yeah, I did that. I know it looks awful right now but you won’t even notice once the garden is going, I promise! I was actually entertaining the idea of ripping them out, but that sounds super involved for a residence we are hoping to vacate next year.
Several perennials are beginning to stretch out their limbs. He’re my daylily.
Darned if I can remember what this one is called. Anyone?
For funsies, I planted one dahlia. When rummaging through my tubers, I came across a bag labeled IDK, lol. By the time I took them down, this one had no blooms to make it recognizable. It’s identity remains a mystery. This seemed the best choice since I can’t be heartbroken over an unknown plant if it never grows… we shall see.
To be continued.
