Sunday Gardening

I blame it on Marvie. After feeling guilty for doing nothing outside besides some basic clean up, we did some planting today.


























My "porch boxes", some container flowers, plants, veggies and one lone parsley plant. We also put in three rhodo's on the side of the house, but the rain stopped me from taking pics. I've done the container gardening for the tomatoes every year and added bell peppers this year. We did jalapeno's before. We usually do cherry and Roma tomatoes and somehow a hybrid got into the mix this year. Next year, I hope to use some of our open acre and have a real garden, but we didn't have time to fence it in this year. We have deer walking across the property, as well as other critters who would eat the veggies-

Can you guess what the first picture is?

Seconds after I took the last picture it started pouring, but then ended about 2 minutes later. I knew we were due for some rain tonight, so I figured I better get the stuff planted now-rain will be good for it.

I also decided to try the recipe Stacy posted Friday for a burrito bake. She mentioned using tortillas in place of crescent rolls and only as I was putting it together did I realize she meant actual tortillas and not tortilla chips. Oh well, it cooking now and Elena and Mike will love it.

Crochet wise, I am to the right shoulder of the Seafoam vest, just had more to do then I had time for this weekend. I didn't even pick up the knitting needles yet, again, not enough time.

Okay you are really ahead of my on the planting thing. My brother in law is suppose to come tomorrow and till up the spot I want to plant my garden. I hope he is able to come over. Then maybe this weekend we can start planting. I hope all your plants live and you have a great garden.

Cute little garden. Is the first one corn? Let me guess, you threw out some decorative corn cobs and they actually sprouted in your yarn?

I could probably plant now with the weather we're getting, but traditionally, around here, planting is done the May long weekend. We're less likely to get killing frosts after that.

Is the first photo bamboo?

Hehehe I'll take the blame =) Everything looks great! How big are your containers for your tomato and pepper plants? I put most of mine in the ground yesterday, because I was worried they wouldn't do well in the size pots I have. Now I'll spend the rest of the summer worried the bunnies will be after them lol.

Is the first picture corn?

Okay first it was the One Skein book and I had been thinking of it last week and now you post about it. And now it's a burrito bake. Ha. :) Last weekend I did the same thing. I think it was called a Fiesta Casserole but it sounds fairly similar. Instead of using actual tortillas I accidentally bought Tostitos. It came out great regardless.
