The kumquats are coming, the kumquats are coming! Weeeeee! And when I pick them off, they also tend to come with some of the leaves. Did you know kumquats (when producing correctly) produce year round?
I bought this Iceberg Rose breed from Whitfill and noticed in the sea of white and green, there were pink buds! It was the only one with pink and white so I grabbed it and am excited to see that it continually blooms white and pink!
I have five rose bushes/plants in my backyard. I want more, but I want ones without thorns – note to self. Cue: Every Rose has it’s thorn…
This is Spanish Lavender below.
We also have the sweet lavender elsewhere in our garden which does fantastic in the dessert and is much stronger of a scent.
Our newly planted Ash tree is growing, I need to add more fish fertilizer.
My spring/summer garden bed veggies are slowly growing, but I still insist on going to the nursery one more time this month to pick up some more starters.
My friends at Black Gold Farm sent me a bag of their organic fertilizer. Have you ever heard of the term “black gold”? I heard it from Benjamin who grew up on a farm and told me that pretty much is what farmers refer to as the best soil ever. OK, so there’s much more to it, but that sums it up. This 5 lbs bag is full of pure dried worm castings (remember that time I wanted to start a worm farm?).
Garden gloves are for wussies. Just kidding, I wear them but this time my manicure was already seeing its last days so I just decided to use my hands. It doesn’t smell either. Worms eat dirt, and they well, pretty much create/give back/poop better dirt.
Did you know a single teaspoon of it will supply all the nutrients for a plant about 6″ tall for two months?
You should know by now I don’t do much in moderation. In this case this should last more than a few months.
I hear high pitched squealing, oh it’s the neighborhood love birds.
Just a few more garden sights around here.
“Please let me run around,” begs Liberty.
OK, only because you’re a good girl.
