I bought a few new plants yesterday (only 2 pots actually, but each one held three plants)! One was sunflowers, and the other... apricot colored zinnias! Each pot was 3dollars, so I paid 1 dollar for each plant...a lot of joy for only 6 bucks! Yeah!
I went out to take pics, but got carried away and had to show my tomatoes, and other things too! They are so beautiful to my eye, and palate....
MR STRIPEY TOMATO...he is about 5 ft. tall and has 24 tomatoes all over him!
I have three plants of this BEEFSTEAK tomato, and I have 18 so far on all three (they are younger than Mr. Stripey!
Here is one of my Ichiban eggplants. Those are watermarks...believe me, my vegetables are 100% organically grown!!! I should have polished this guy before taking the pic!!! :)
Kale in front, eggplants behind.
Kale and zinnia:
Aren't these huge Dusty Millers just so pretty, tucked in with the tomatoes????
I love this tire...so full of color! I have a new appreciation for begonias!!! (Front left)
The blue salvia are gorgeous! My Mom bought one of these yesterday, because she admired mine so much! I keep them going year round, even though they are considered annuals!
HERE ARE TWO OF THE NEW SUNFLOWERS, and bunny likes to lay in them! So does Baby cat!
I have discovered a new love! Have you ever tasted Kohlrabi? Well, I am just tasting them for the first time. I planted 8 in my Moms garden, and she brought 4 to me, when she harvested the other day. I am not overly fond of the round Kohlrabi inself...BUT, on top of the thing, grow stems and leaves (dark green leaves, which are edible). They have the MOST exquisite taste! I like them better than ANY OTHER green! You guys really have to give them a try, if you haven't already! I steam them in a skillet with a little water and some olive oil, and once the water is gone, sizzle them in the oil with seasoning, and you will not be disappointed! I lay the whole leaf and stem in there. I made some scrambled egg with kohlrabi leaves and cheese on toast for breakfast this morning! It was delicious!!! Here is a pic.
Hope you all have a wonderful upcoming week!
