|Both of the trees were cropped when they were transplanted into larger pots.|
The lemon tree has grown a number of new leaves that
are growing outward. All of the mature Myer lemons trees I've seen are more
bush like than tree like.
|I know this looks messy, but I can't wash it down just yet.|
The soil already has enough water in it.
This morning was a lazy time as I went across the street at a WAWA to grab a breakfast sandwich. They're 2/3.00 and made from good ingredients. All real food. They own their own dairy farm and use the products from there in their stores. I ate one and will save the other for another meal. (OK, the pup and I ate one!)
The gas is always the lowest price in the area, as well. In case you want to know, never grab gas when the truck is there filling the tanks. The action of filling the tanks raises up any debris at the bottom of the tanks and can goo up your gas tank.
I pulled weeds this morning after inspecting the veggies. The parsley is going strong as is the garlic. Things like this make for a nice beginning to the day. I put down landscape cloth behind the blackberry bush to discourage weeds and kill off the ones that are there now. I can reach the other garden on a daily basis to weed it out, but this side goes back too far.
|The blackberry bush has produced an off spring.|
The big pot I want to grow tomatoes in is now in the front yard filled with soil, peralite, egg shells. and compost. I can see now why compost has been referred to as black gold. I'm amazed at how the food and leaves I put in the bin last year has morphed into black soil. Simply amazing!
|The egg shells and compost waiting to meet the soil. I've done everything |
I can to provide a healthy environment for the heirloom tomatoes this year.
I'm hoping for a successful season.
|I bought this pot when I moved in three years ago. It was a good investment|
because it has stood the test of time.
The Red, White, and Blue now proudly waves at the front of my home. I have to say these past few years have been rough on our country, but the people I know have persevered and have come out strong. Of course, the ones I know can be just as stubborn as I am. Everyone has a good attitude and a strong belief system in place which gives them the fortitude to move forward determined not to fail. Most everyone has adapted a simple life style embracing the free things in life rather than accumulating material 'stuff'. I'm proud of our success, but in the secret chambers of my heart I wish more people would see what's truly important. All in good time.
|The greenery is coming to life just in time to welcome summer.|
|Isn't she a beauty?|
