I'm Back!

Didja miss me? Didja even notice I was gone? No, I didn't go anywhere. I just really haven't had that much to blog about these last few days.

I don't really have that much to blog about today, either, but you get to suffer through a boring post anyway.

I came home today and realized I'd forgotten to get Jesse a new bag of dog food, so off to town I go. While I was there, I decided to go ahead and get a couple more pots and separate the remaining petunias that I had still in one pot.


They each have their own pots now.  Honestly, this is my first foray into petunias, and I had no idea how big they'd get. This one was in the flower bed, but I put it back into a pot.  Something is eating my flowers up, and I thought picking it up a little bit would discourage whatever it is.


I'd bought some insecticide/fungicide, but it doesn't work too well.  Every time I spray the plants, it burns my blooms.  So I started using the old trick of putting a squirt of dishwashing liquid in my watering can.  It seems to help, and is less harmful to my plants.

This one is still my favorite,


but I love the shocking pink of this one.


It's much brighter than this picture shows.

Anyway, James came out there while I was repotting the petunias, and we got my little trellis up, and I got my moonflower seeds planted.


Meanwhile, the big garden is really taking off.


Grapes are coming on.


We're going to have blueberries out the wazoo.


And it looks like we might even get some figs this year.



The bad news is, something has been getting my plums.  Once the trees were loaded with them, but today when I checked, there were only a few left.  At least we now know that they will still bear fruit. But I still have to get the rest of the poison ivy out of them. 

Anybody have a Hazmat suit I can borrow?

It is not that your life is boring, it is that you have been a busy girl. It all looks great!
