I don't know if this will work, nor really what I'm going to do with it in general, but this tall thing is the bean the girl brought home from the "master gardeners' fair." Of course, according to the boy, it must be placed in the same pot as the Lima beans he brought me for Mother's Day so as one child doesn't outdo the other. What will become of them? Who knows. They could be bosom buddies or terror roommates. What to do when they start climbing? Yea, I got nothin'. We'll see how they go.
Wolverine (the venus fly trap) seems to have found himself a few good meals. I'm rather impressed with him, myself.
At first, I was only going to do pictures of the whole yard once a month, but twice a month sounds good as well. It's grown quite a bit since the first of May. Some of the beans are already climbing over a foot. The peppers are really kind of tall and I'm worried they'll bend over since this is only May and we have a long time to go in the season. So far, no flowers or anything on the ones in the garden.Lastly, this is the moment I've been waiting for....do you see it?
The beans in hanging pots have reached the deck! They're small pots, so I'm hopeful that they won't get too rootbound and continue to grow well . In my perfect world, they'll vine around the slats of the deck. However, in my perfect world there is also always a cabana boy on call ready to provide me with that frosty beverage with a delicately placed umbrella. Wait!! I do have that. He's the man, and it's not so much a frosty beverage and umbrella so much as an iced martini and an olive. I'll take it any day. ...maybe there's hope for those beans after all.
The morning truly came early today...I had to be at the school at 4:00 AM to decorate for the senior breakfast. Hopefully tomorrow's won't be so terribly early, yet early enough to enjoy. Sweet gardening dreams.
