Signs of spring are finally popping up around our yard. I am so happy to see any of the bulbs bloom. About three years ago we bulldozed our yard and built a fence and a big deck. The dirt was shoved all around and my flower bulbs with it. The flowers show up all over the yard now. Every spring it is a surprise to see where my flowers grow. These daffodils popped up near the driveway. I have about three nice sized clumps of daffodils. We had one little crocus show up in the middle of the driveway. Hubby and I were really careful not to run it over, but one of the workmen next door (the house that burned down) drove over my poor crocus.
Crazy puppy dogs wondering what I am doing on the wrong side of the gate.
Here is our outside kitty. We think it's a girl, she adopted us about five years ago. She started hanging around the back door and was eating our other kitty's food. When we built the deck she moved to the front of the house and that is where she stays. When she first started hanging around, Hubby said I couldn't give her a name because we couldn't have anymore cats. We already had four ;o). We would always talk about "the other kitty", meaning the one outside. Well over the years, that has become her name...we call Other Kitty and she comes running. We still have one of our original four, but she hangs out in the laundry room or outside.
I was watching TV last week and I saw an ad for Giant Tree Tomatoes. I love home grown tomatoes. They are so much better than the grocery store ones. We have been talking about a small vegetable garden this year and the thought of Giant Tree Tomatoes...well, I couldn't resist! I mean the tomatoes in the ad were absolutely huge! Giant! As big as a man's hand...too big to fit on screen!
I was hooked. I had to have them. So I went online and ordered my very own Giant Tree Tomatoes.
Well imagine my amazement when they arrived yesterday and I saw the huge package waiting for me! I was so excited to see my new plants! Here they are...
Not exactly giants yet. I am actually kind of glad they are just seeds. I can start them in the house and move them outside when the weather finally warms up. We usually have to wait until May to plant tomatoes. I will also be growing some zucchini and patty pan squash when the weather gets warm. Oh, those are five inch scissors, I used them to show you how small the tomato containers were.
What do you have planned for your garden? Do you grows veggies? Do you grow flowers?
We are almost at midweek. Can you see that weekend out there??
