My garden has usually been flowers. I haven't decided I don't like flowers anymore, but I'm trying to branch out into fruit that is on my low-carb diet. I planted six brown sticks that claimed to be blackberries. All six have leafed out and are apparently blackberries:) The t-post next to it is ambitious-looking, but the blackberries will need to be staked and wire will need to run from one t-post to another. Also visible is a garlic plant. I planted about half a pound. I've never planted garlic before and I don't know if we can eat that many. Larry claims not to like it and wanted me not to eat it. I told him it is health, on my diet, and I actually like it so he'd better eat some, too.
I am painting the blue tires now. I painted some yesterday and hopefully I will paint the rest of them today and tomorrow.
The strawberries I planted in the tops of the tires are already putting on blooms.
I'm weeding a little each day, too. My hybrid tea roses look full and healthy. The weeds in the flower bed look like a lot of trouble to weed, but the mulch helps keep them easy to pull out. We've had so much rain lately that I haven't been able to do much at a time because I've also been working on the tires.
Weeds, roses, stepping stones, drip irrigation
This is a patch that I've weeded. The little things in the area will grow and look better, but right now I'm satisfied with how they look with no weeds.
