Dollar Store Garden - Day 49 (Bean Stalk and garden update too!)

Bachelor's Buttons are thriving in their new home:

The castor bean plant has not budged but is healthy:
 We are thinking lots of stuff is going on underground.

And now for a general garden update.

Three little troll friends to welcome you.
They only speak, see and listen to good stuff...
...such as...what's going on in the garden?
Herbs:
Roma tomato:
Peppers:
Squash:
Tomatoes:
Grapes:
Herbs, lettuce, cukes:
Herbs, eggplant, beans:

Rosemary:
Squash and beans:
Zucchini:
 Mysterious seed bomb:
Pansies and geraniums:
Honeysuckle:

The front planter:

Lucille from this post still alive and well.
She must be the worlds largest and oldest geranium:
This post was more or less to journal the garden progress,
it helps me know what to expect next year.
I obviously do like to share with you though and
 I do so love to see your gardens, as well.
I heart the flower garden!
Yours and mine. :-)

  1. What a beautiful garden Astri! You must be proud of all your pots :) You inspire me to do something with my leftover pots! I'm thinking herbs...
    Have a great day!

    1. Thanks Kris. You like the pillows? - I will send them to you. I have an addiction to pillows and that would help me thin some out. :-)

    1. It's always work isn't it? Just like housework...more fun to crochet a garden, but unfortunately not edible. ;-)

  9. Oh là, je n'aime pas jardiner, mon mari n'aime pas jardiner, ce sont les taupes qui jardinent à notre place dans la pelouse :( J'aime les fleurs, j'adore les légumes, mais je n'ai pas le feeling avec la terre !! Moralité, je ne présenterai pas mon magnifique jardin sur mon blog !
    Le tien est fort beau, fort coloré, tout comme j'aime ;-)
    Très bel été !!!!!!!!!!

    1. Thank you Domi - it is a lot of work and then we get gophers and snails, so it can be discouraging. Luckily the NVO takes care of most of it - I am only responsible for the flowers. It is so nice though to make a meal from the garden, or at least compliment it with some herbs - that's my favorite part!
