Its been gonna storm all week, but has been missin us. Staying north, I didn't want it to be bad weather but just get some of the rain off of it. So every afternoon when I'd get home from work I get to planting. Same today, I did get a lot planted, more hollyhocks, black eye susans, Phillipine Violets, Mexican Flame vines, Spanish Flags, Morning Glory trees, Oakleaf Hydrangeas, White Obedient Plant, Morning Glory bush (questinable as to whether they make it here), Borage, some lillies I couldn't never seem to get planted also got done today. Finished up planting the last of the potatoes I've not been able to find the time to plant. I've not been that good at growing them, so I'll be interesting to see what they do being planted so late. The other afternoon when it was suppose to rain I got my Lady Banks rose and Lavaglut rose planted.
Friday I picked another bucket of strawberries, think I'll put it up as a pie filling this time. My baby chicks are doing well, out growing there large box thats for sure. Had planned to put them outside today, but DH says to wait til after next Wed., cuz its suppose to be back down in the 40's at night til Wed. I was gonna C & P the bloom list, but this site won't let me.
Well its lightening a good bit now, so its getting closer. A tornado has already been spotted in Ala north of us. trudy
I added some of the compost to the bed I was gonna plant the yellow squash in, planted all the squash which I hadn't planned on planting that many. Ole well, what I don't want I'll give away (I hope). Still have lots of other stuff to plant. I did get the "Black" tomatoe bed planted. Still have 1 full bed I can plant in, so plan to plant it full of melons. Just gonna amend the soil first, just to tired this afternoon and still had supper to cook. I make myself stop around 6 so I won't be so late getting outta the kitchen. But I got a tray of Pupura Foxglove and a Mixed of colors of Foxglove planted near the pond area. 2 Red Stem Hydrandreas planted that I rooted from a friend of mines mother plant. If I could ever figure out how to post pics I'll add some. Its suppose to storm here for the next couple of days, one reason I wanted to get as much planted as I could. trudy
