garden progress

Our garden is finally getting to the fun part! Every day we spot a few more blooms and vegetables growing.






So far we've been enjoying the lettuce and bean crops. Up next are the green peppers and zucchini.





And the front garden is starting to fill in. I'm still in search of the perfect red shade/sun plant. Last year the celosia died out from too much sun and this year the impatiens could hardly be called thriving. Do you have any suggestions for me? If worse comes to worse, I will have to go with begonias (don't ask me why, but I've just never really liked these flowers. Although they do look nice in a thick, colorful border).





I can't believe it but I'm just one presentation and three weeks away from ending my first class! The craft projects are piling up around here, so dontcallmebecky should be resuming its craft/quilt blog soon. I'm dying to get my hands on some of these new sublime stitching patterns!

  6. I love garden time! Since I no longer have my own little garden, I like to check out the flower garden at a local park down the street. Everyday something different shows up.
    Still can't get over what a cute house you have!
    My projects have been backing up too with school lately. Congrats you are heading towards the end of the semester. I still have another5 weeks left. So I am about mid way.

  10. I love the picture of your house. It looks just like the street where I grew up in Upstate NY. Sniff. I miss green grass yards.

  11. Congratulations on a successful semester! I always enjoy seeing pictures of your beautiful gardens and your house. Just some plants that came to mind: bee balm, red zinnias, snapdragons, verbena, salvia, and new guinea impatiens. I've given myself a year off of gardening so I will have to enjoy yours. :~)
