Something To Cheer You Up

The high temperature here today was 88! Way too hot to be outside doing garden stuff, but better than still be buried in snow, I guess. I watered and took some pictures of blooming things, instead. I know, should’ve been working on my tomato lasagna bed, but it was just too hot…

Here are a few pics of what’s growing and blooming in my garden right now.


Yellow “Gleam” nasturtium, I think, and the variegated “Alaska” leaves next to it.


Orange Nasturtium and some Alyssum

Yesterday, I started the lasagna bed for the volunteer tomato, and made a “tomato teepee” from PVC pipe painted green. Here’s a pic of the bed and teepee:

I had no idea how to tie the poles together, but I found a handy link about lashing poles to make your own trellises and teepees. Very helpful, with good illustrations. Maybe it’ll help you, too.

And that’s all she wrote for tonight…
