The front walk has such a nice display of flowers that I just had to share. Not only does this greet our guests; but we enter the house at the front door too because while we have an attached garage, there is not a door inside that leads to the house. The garage was added to the house at some point. I love walking through the flowers.
I let a lot of plants self seed. Mostly I get flowers, but in the wild area where I let things compost, vegetables can appear too.
This yellow squash plant is already producing food!
The raised vegetable beds are quite full. We are starting to get peas. Add them to the strawberries, lettuce, radishes and onions we've been enjoying.
The water jugs are lined up so I can use the water in them to fill the aqua cones. I don't need the jugs to protect seedlings any more this season. The aqua cones are the round brown things you see. They are inverted two liter bottles with the bottoms cut off and the necks stuck into spikes that direct the water to the plants roots. They are brown because I cover each one with a knee high stocking to act as a filter keeping out leaves and bugs.
Hoping for good harvests!
