Is there an album for garden pics? I have pictures of my container garden on my "new" decks along the side of my RV

I used to have a handle on life, but it fell off.

My whole body aches, even my hair.  Spent most of yesterday in the yard.  I dug up the irises that need to be moved and replanted those.  Planted 2 forsythia plants (can't call them bushes since they are basically just sticks right now).  Mulched that area - this is a new garden.  We decided to make one straight line for the garden beds and this was a new area that needed to be transformed.  That part is now finished.  We also laid 6 pieces of sod to straighten out that line.  I still have to transplant some strawberry plants, but that will have to wait until the strawberries are finished.  Need to go out today to pick more.

I plan to sew today to give my body a break.  Plus, we have a new puppy - a 3 month old Pug named Mr. Pugsley.  He is a handful...

The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing.

Yes FD.  Row 3, page of of albums.

Tess,  LOL  I feel ya!  our bodies just resist all that bending and lifting. 

Today we finished stacking the firewood from the pecan tree.   We figure about 8 pallets.. There are still some logs that need to be cut but I hope that's next month.   LOL   We had a VOLE run out from under one of the logs...  It is in now VOLE heaven..  Hubby quickly dropped a large log on him.   

I planted some beautiful yellow day lilies 4 years ago when we moved here in a concrete planter so the voles couldn't get to them..  they were root bound.     I split them up and put them in several places.. some protected from the voles.. some NOT.. hoping they don't like this kind.    I have a large clump of them ready for mom too.   I wanted to link you to a picture of them but can't find 'this' kind in google images ...  Soft yellow with 3 layers of soft petals.  

We (family) hit the street for a bit this morning.. Son spread 5 bags of mulch and we think we need about 12 more.   I I raked up leaves that were smoothering grass ( 2 black bags full )   Hubby weed whacked for a long time...  It looks better but needs another session some day.

Almost time for Jace.. we are ready

Leslie, I knew you had the big pots, but I didn't know you had raised beds, too. Smart to have that wider board attached at the top. Weeding is so simple when you can sit comfortably on the side and just reach in to pluck weeds. Randy didn't provide "seats" when he made the raised beds at our current home. Had them at our our first house, and I miss them!

Enjoy that first tomato!

I am happy to report that most of my succulants are surviving being in my care :)  I do have a couple little tiny ones that didn't or aren't making it.  DH is encouraging me to get some of the larger ones- I want to but since they cost more I worry about them not making it lol.  Maybe I will go pick a few up today and get them into the ground, as its only going to be in the 80s today.

When you can't find the sunshine, be the sunsine.

What are you using to water your container gardens?  Also the planter boxes?  Do you have them on a drip system?

They all look fabulous.  I can almost smell some of the plants from here in California.

Leslie, are the fencing pieces on the ground around the squash plants intended to keep the fruit off the ground?

I finally got some Iris planted that I've had for weeks.    I also planted a peony that I picked up from the BIG LOTS this weekend..  I have cantaloupe growing and one watermelon.  :D   It looks like I'll get 2 more zucchini before the last 2 plants die from those awful vine borers.  :(      There are 2 hard hibiscus bushes I need to plant...  huge blooms but will return next year.  

I was talking to a vendor at the local farmers market and she told me that they plant squash plants 2-3 times because they just know they will be losing some of the plants...     Maybe I'll get seeds next year and plant them every 2-3 weeks so I always have some growing...

Our Garden is just going crazy.  We are getting about 10 cucumbers about twice a week now.  Next week I am going to make some pickles.  I am just about cucumbered out.  I have given them away to my SIL and Grandson but how many can they really eat.

The onions and peppers are doing wonderful.  We have already one really nice size red tomato off one plant.  Tomorrow I will dig in the middle of the cages to see if anymore are hiding.

Brenda, can you share your pickle recipe. 

I made bread and butter pickles last year's crop and the ones I made a couple of weeks ago when I tasted were not as good. DH thinks he didn't use enough salt (we had about 3 times as much cucumbers this time). They're still producing and he's talking about making more.

I understand how you feel.   With small gardens, every piece of fruit or vegatable is reason to celebrate.  

Congrats!!
