First, let's look at the front yard's progress.
This lily is another story. My sweet husband bought them from a child at church who was trying to raise money for something last fall. Well, I wasn't expecting them, and I let them sit around too long waiting to figure out what to do with them. So, I decided to toss them into a pot out front over the winter and if they lived, they lived. I guess they lived! I am going to move them to a proper spot this fall. I promise.
Now, onto the garden patch...
The tomatoes are thriving. I know they take some time to mature, but I think, at this rate, we will see cherry tomatoes in late August or September. Can you see the compost pile, there in the back. I tossed some old potatoes in the corner of it and am waiting to see if they sprout. It's all an experiment, you know.
Now for a look at the whole area. There are some dandelions to weed, but otherwise it is looking good.
I still have a big empty pot that I'd love to fill. It seems one year it sat empty because I did not have any dirt. This year I have dirt, but no money for more plants! And I'd also love to have a hanging pot by the mailbox, but that is a low priority matter, too.
