Garden Delights

 I just love this time of year when the garden is young and weedless. Next week may be a different story. The many plants I've bought at various places  are now in the ground. 

 I bought way too many plants though. I'd get some at Lowe's then Southern States when I'd get feed and see some heritage tomato plants at the Sheep and Wool Fest that looked awesome. The problem was that I was too busy to plant them right away so when I finally tallied up my flats, I had 16 tomato plants and over 20 pepper plants. We do like our peppers, especially the Thai hot peppers but I was a bit out of control this year. We even had to till another row to be able plant all the extras I got.

 Somewhere I read about vertical planting of potatoes. I happened to have these wire cages that I filled with sheep poo and old hay. Raising sheep has its rewards, in the form of worm enriched black soil that was once poo. I just take my huge garden cart out there and shovel up huge quantities of the rich stuff and move it to the bins. I stuffed the side with old hay from last year and put an 'eye' of the potato in each square. I was hopeful that they peek through eventually but doubtful too. 

But to my surprise, the little eyes sprouted and are trailing down the tower. Yeah!

My greens are taking off finally. I eat at least one salad a day, so to go out and pick the arugula and lettuce is a dream.

I have many little gardens around but I discovered that most of them have purple flowers in them. I'm not sure if it's the time of year or if I just pick purple producing flowers.

But you can't go wrong with purple and green!
