This week we decided to add some color to the garden and front porch with some pots.
|Our little corner garden in the backyard|
|Aren’t these gorgeous? The picture doesn’t do them justice!
They are also Calibrachoa (a member of the Nightshade family)
like the ones below and will attract butterflies to our front porch!
|Multi-colored Calibrachoa to attract butterflies and
bumblebees to help with pollination in the garden.
|I love these striped Petunias!|
|We still only have the one Beefsteak tomato, but there is a second teeny, weeny baby coming in.
Right now it’s the size of a pencil eraser.
We pruned the Beefsteak plant and staked it up so hopefully it will start fruiting more.
|Still haven’t had more girl cucumber flowers,
but the one I manually pollinated on Monday is growing our first cucumber!
|The cucumbers have taken well to my nylon trellis concept.
Hopefully my experiment will work as we visioned when it’s time to harvest.
|Our Big Boys do have some Early Blight, so we had to get some fungicide.|
