It's good advice. Especially if you started with good soil and it rains every three days. But, even the best advice doesn't come with guarantees. This is the last cabbage (and Brassica in general) I will plant in the Spring. In the Spring those little white moths flit around laying eggs in tender leaves which hatch little green worms that feast feast feast on my heads.
The number of Seven Dust applications needed to keep these cabbage edible is not worth the toxicity.
Same cabbage, planted late summer/early fall will have no pest damage at all!! If you live in a climate, where there are 10 growing months in the years you have this luxury.
healthy leeks take a long time to beef up. i will harvest these for quiche and a potato leek soup this week.
peas are finally flowering
just as with people, some thrive and some seem so stunted for no particular reason. growing in the exact same soil this little tomato plant is about the height of my hand, while the others from the same seed (see in the rear of the photo) are four hands high.
Crookneck Zucchini. I think these blossoms have the prettiest color. Katy, could you make me a spring dress that flows and glows like a squash blossom?
I love these little bells. They will get big and be perfect for some gumbo, or stuffed with spicy rice.
This little pod is a baby baby tomatillo. my first try with these, I'll let you know how they turn out.
Was it the hail or is there a bug in the yard partial to the leaves of my struggling eggplant? Hmmm.
If you plant nothing else new in your yard, may I suggest this Verbena Bonariensis? It adds height and dreaminess to your garden scape.
Hollyhocks, bright and pale pink, another tall bloomer.
we love spiders
I love hydrangeas. Add lime for pink, aluminum for blue.
