The header theme this week by myself and is ""How Does Your Garden Grow". I chose this in honor of Lanny joining the group. She is always working in the dirt with neat garden beds. She may find this week there are some other gardeners around. Mac, Darla, Gail's Man, Lanny and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. Gail's Man is off acting tonight, so he is not posting this week.
Martha and Tom are on a break. Come back as soon as you are able my friends.
So, how does my garden grow? The veggie garden is a jungle, the tomatoes are at 7 feet high and just starting to produce cherry tomatoes. They are well over the cages and the fence. The zucchini are giving me enough to feed the extended family and the green and yellow peppers are going crazy. The peppers are hidden in the middle behind the zucchini which are behind the spreading tomatoes. The white onions in front are almost ready. I can't keep ahead of the weeds with all this fishing.
Fishing is a tough job but someone has to do it. I was the only fisherman on the lake today. This is another place I harvest which is Lake Hodgson. I do this by taking the Black Crappie out of the lake. I caught 23 today with the biggest being 12". They didn't all fit on the cooler. They were all powerful fish.
My header is this little garden area is really neat. I'm sure Darla can help me with the little white with a red center flower which came back from last year. There are hot peppers behind the flowers and in front of a first year red rose. I like to keep the hot peppers separate because of cross pollination with the sweet peppers. I also have a couple pink Gerber Daisy and some Calla Lilies near the house. The Black Squirrel, bunny, frog and the Raccoon guard the area. Can you see them all?
See the other neat post above.
