Very nice! Great use of space and they’ll make the wall look lovely!
These are “Lilac” Bell Peppers. I planted them on a whim, and I have no idea how they’ll taste. I don’t care either, because they’re so pretty!
My butterfly and hummingbird garden might just be the project I’ve ever completed. I love sitting on the patio and watching them flutter all around.
Bee on my coriander this evening.
Strawberries are spreading and attempting to invade carrot territory. Sunflowers and zucchini growing together, and beets growing under another sunflower. The garden is in a direct sun area, but here in Texas, the sun can be harsh in the heat of the summer. I thought I’d try some tall sunflowers strewn throughout the beds to provide a little shade and here and there. I figured if they block the sun too much, I’ll cut them back or down.
A collection of flowers to attract and nurture bees in your garden.
Need more bees? Check out this seed collection! They also have one for attracting beneficial insects to your garden. I love the packaging of these seeds; if you open the envelope up entirely, there’s a wealth of information on the inside of the packets.
Doug Bartlett, a veteran teacher with an upstanding record of 17 years, has filed a lawsuit against the school district of Chicago for suspending him without pay after giving a lesson on gardening tools to his second grade students.
I start a great deal of seeds that require warm/cold cycles to break down germination inhibiters.
I usually keep them in baggies with moist vermiculite (in a pinch perlite will work too). I tape the seed pack on the outside of the bag as a label and then write down what date it needs to be moved in and out of the refrigerator.
Sometimes a few seeds won’t wait and will germinate straight away. You can make out a root and a pale green stem in the bottom picture near the two brown seeds.
They’ll carefully be placed in moist potting mix and the remaining seed will undergo proper treatment.
I bought some Lovage seeds a few weeks back. They require a frost in order to germinate. I knew a cold snap was coming, so I hustled to sow them before it hit. We didn’t quite get a frost, but it was close. I’ve been watching patienIy to see if anything happens. So far, I’ve got a whole lotta nothin’. I might be able to use this idea to get them going!
