Hello my friends, welcome to my garden. Not one picture from the luncheon turned out but I am still calling guests. These are some pictures of my garden. Doug put my earth boxes up on blocks so I can plant, weed, water and pick all from a wheelchair or walker. My fairy sits between Doug's trucks. You see tomatoes and peppers in these.
These lilies came from Chicago with us last year. That is bee balm to the right and 'love lies bleeding' in the black planters.
The peppers are looking pretty sad but are already putting out fruit.
More Peppers. (Yum Pepper Jelly)
I did the back beds in Dragon Wing Begonia, they are supposed to get rather big so I planted them like 4 feet apart. I think they are pretty and different.
I love yellow squash and this is looking good.
This is the first time I have tried watermelon in a square foot garden, we'll see.
The topsy turvey tomatoes did well last year so we will see.
This is about 1/3 of my garden and will post more picutures soon. Also I have a giveaway for my 100th post coming up! Cool huh?
I hope that my computer will let me have enough speed to look at other blogs, I miss them so.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I would love it if you would join me in our journey of Starting Over. At a point when most of those our age are dreaming of retirement spots, we are beginning again. Our home has been Georgia for most of my life and all of my married life. A few years ago we took a huge step. My husband left his job and took one in IL. We had to sell most of our belongings because they just wouldn't fit in our IL home. Then the economy downturn reared it's ugly head. He lost his job, our house in Georgia had not sold so we headed back. He couldn't find a job in the states so after 18 months he took a job in Saudi Arabia. So join me in my quest to raise 2 dogs; Josh our Lab, Ning our Rescue and our 2 pot belly pigs Hamlet and YamYam. There will be stories of missing my wonderful husband, shopping to refurnish our country home, occasional poor health, decorating, gardening, recipes and whatever else happens in our lives. Join in any time, I love comments and feel free to email me anytime. So welcome friends and lets get to starting over.......
