garden
« on: May 04, 2013, 11:18:02 PM »
Well, I finally accomplished something today.  I haven't finished building the rocking chair someone wanted me to build........ ect.  BUT, I did plant a garden that is almost 600 square feet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   OH YEAH,  for once, I feel like a bad ass! 
        Leave me my moment of glory.  Don't start telling me that I have to water the garden, weed the garden, shoot the rabbits, ect.  Just let me have my moment ......  I managed to plant a big ass garden (for me, anyhow).  I hope everyone is doing well.  I thought I should share a moment of joy......   I'm not too great at doing that!
cheers,
bird.

Congrats, Bird!  That is a fairly good size personal garden.  I hope the rewards are as great for you as they are for me.

This is my early (cool weather) garden.  There is an arsenal of tools supporting my gardening effort.  I would be fun to group them all some day for a pic.........twine, fencing/staking tools, hammers, tillers, rakes, hoes, shovels, tractors, implements, etc.

I bought two plants at our local garden show! I have them in a widow box and they are growing!
Quite the accomplishment for me since I have not tried flowers yet.

I don't wana see another garden ever, I have been doing so much roto tilling lately for people its crazy.
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

I planted onions today.I'm still a tad worried about frost or I would plant everything now. Three states away it was snowing the other day. All my plants are healthy and ready to go in.

I have been waiting 4 - 5 years for this bromeliad to bloom, really had given up hope, but this spring, what do you know !

It's called Blue Tango.

Nah, instead you should be harvesting the weed seeds and selling them here.  More cash for beer ingredients and torches!  The women I've known have been excitedly growing coleus for the past 40 years.  They're just about unavoidable.
