I did a little more in my yard this weekend besides gardening. My garden is pretty self sufficient except for watering. But, trust me that is an everyday occurrence. The Desert heat really takes it out of the garden and if I miss a day, I am not a happy camper. Or should I say a happy gardener.
Anyway, here is a photo of the century plants I put in Saturday morning. I started at 7am and by 8:30am I was done because I was quite sure I would be melting very soon. As usual, Lucie, my big red dog is inspecting my work. Also I made use of the some of the bazillion rocks in my yard.
I dug wells for my Bird of Paradise. Mainly for better watering efficiency. Still need to finish the rocking. Trust me I did not run out of rock. This was about the time I felt the melting coming on.
Here is a sunflower that looks to be blooming soon.
Finally, more than one cucumber at a time!
I have two red tomatoes now. Boy, am I on a roll.
The zucchini is taking over the snap bean fence. Naughty zucchini.
Here is my marigolds pre tarantula.
Here is my marigold post tarantula. Better hope I do not find you big hairy marigold killing spider!
Finally, I checked the progress of my carrots. Clearly, they are not ready yet. Lucie does not seem to care though. BTW, I did not give it to her because if she knows where they are, they will become her next snack or in this case a veggie delicacy meal.
