My morning glorys and moonflowers are gracefully adorning my porch and I've finally got the first bloom of my sunflowers.
At this time of year it's obscenely hot and we've been dealing with drought conditions.
Hot? Florida? you must be kidding?
What's unusual is to be under water restrictions. I dunno about Florida, but Mom said vegetables are exempt in Georgia. So mine get drenched every other day.
So far I've got zucchini, bell peppers, serrano peppers, cucumbers, eggplant, scallions, beets, carrots and tomatoes.
I've extended my tomato bed to give them more room the past couple of days (talk about back breaking work)
but I waited until last night to move them. That way they could adjust when it's cooler rather than the parching 90 plus degree temps we've been having lately.
I'm pretty happy with how the eggplant, zucchini and tomatoes are doing. The others....well it's my first time trying them so I'll have to practice to make perfect.
All in all it gives me a lot of satisfaction to grow things from seed and see them do well.
I recently had a chick nickname me "mother earth goddess" because she says I'm "nurturing and wise"
