Thursday in the Garden

Our pineapple sage, it is doing extremely well and the butterflies and hummingbirds love it.



Foxglove, they are beginning to die back, they don't seem to care for the heat.

Our sole surviving cilantro. We hopes it will reseed itself and there will be more next year.

That tall stuff behind it is orgeano and the plant beside it we thinks is bee balm. We are not sure and it has never bloomed for us.

Our Marigolds, these are very good Marigolds they came back all by themselves from last year.

These Watermelon came back from last year too. They are doing pawsome and have gotten a lot bigger since Mommy took this picture.

Daddy is doing an experiment to see which does best upside down tomatoes or tomatoes in 5 gallon buckets.

Strawberries, they are yummy to our tummy.

We showed you orange clover awhile back, this is yellow clover that also grows wild in our yard.


Stokes Aster.



The Charybdis Bed

The Whiskers Bed

Lantana

We are in a server drought here. It has not rained at all since early April. And we didn't get rain but once in April and it wasn't very much. Please purr that we gets a good rain soon. We needs it very much for the plants. Our pond is way down.



Now that we can FINALLY get into our account. We wanted to remind you about the Society of Feline Gardeners meeting today @ Jonesie's. You'll see lots of fabulous gardeners there. We will have to visit later as all our visiting time was taken up with finding out how to sign in.

We also wants to tell you to go by Tank's blog to see how to help the animals that were victims of the tornado in Joplin, Missouri.

  2. We would gladly give you some of the rain we have had. At least today is supposed to be a very nice day here.

    Our human sister is trying to grow strawberry plants in one of those upside down planters. She took it down the other night because of all the wind we were supposed to have and some furry, probably a rabbit, came by and ate all the almost ripened berries:(

    We hope all your tomatoes do well, nothing quite like a fresh grown tomato.

  4. There are always so many wonderful plants to see in your gardens! We wish we could send you some of our rain, because we've had almost nothing BUT rain all May, with more on the way today and for the next few days. We're so soggy, it's crazy.

    BTW, we didn't know you could grow tomatoes upside down until the mom saw it on someone's blog last year--can't remember if it was a cat blog or a non-cat blog! You'll definitely have to let us know which tomatoes do better!

  9. Your garden looks so beautiful! Do you ever have trouble with animals or insect bothering your vegetables?We hope that you get rain soon. We are very far down in rain too, but we are fearful because we suspect once hurricane season starts we will be deluged.

  10. Yes, we has problems with insects eating our veggies. And the leaves on some of our pretty flowering plants.

    We has a bad problem with our tomatoes. Mommy got all excited cause she saw a red one and she picked it and the bottom is all brown and hard. we do not know what caused this or how to fix it. But there wasn't any tomato that was fit to eat, and Mommy looked and there are several more that are like this.

  12. The foxglove looks very pretty. We have never grown that. We think the tall plant is Bee Balm. Ours flowers a lot though. The asters look very nice, too. We are waiting for ours to bloom.

  13. Oh, we just saw yer comment about the tomato. It is probly "blossom end rot". It is a common problem when the plants are young and struggling to pull up nutrients. The cause is lack of calcium. Sometimes there is enough in the soil, but the young roots cant get at enough of it. We put crushed eggshells in the planting holes. Some people pinch off the first few blossoms to delay fruiting.
