Still Chilly

Good Morning everyone,

I thought I would just take a couple of quick photos of the north side garden.  It is not pretty, as you can see.  I do not have a huge space to work with, and at the present, my tomatoes are covered, but the snow fence sure makes a good support for them and the cucumbers.  I have to share space with the vehicles as you have to keep things close here or everything will grow legs and walk off.

Where I have my walking onions in the container, I will place my cucumbers, and they can travel and meander along the fence up by the carport shed.  The sun is great along the fence line, and the rest of the garden, I will place in containers around where I have sun.  I have containers ready for summer lettuces and greens also, I just have to wait til it dries out and I can move them into the garden enclosure.  My tomatoes seems to get through the cold.  I have lost about 4 plants, but I will replace them.  They either got water logged, or chilled, and I lost one to the wind whipping and breaking the top off, but I think that they did well.  I placed milk jugs with water in them and that really helped.  I guess what ever I can do.
I am very ashamed of my garden this year.  And it doesn't help when it is very dreary like the photos show.  Today it is very chilly and gloomy.  If we get sun, it will be better, but not like last year's photos I had up of the house.

Well, I just thought I would chime in this morning.  I have a ton of house work to do, laundry, and bathroom duties, so I had better bug out for now and I will try to post later in the week.

Please have a great week.



  1. Glad to read a post from you today. It looks like you've got quite a bit growing there in spite of cold weather and other hassles. Glad to see you still doing your thing.

    My gardens leave a LOT to be desired. I crop pictures so that no one sees what I see. :-)

    Have a great week Vicki ~ FlowerLady

  2. I think your garden will look good when we get some sunshine and things can really grow; I can just imagine that snow fencing with cucumbers climbing over and the green tomatoes leaning up next to it.

    I should be doing something productive but I am in a letdown mode after our trip.

  3. Arrrgh--to the weather!
    After heat and humidity we are now in cold and rainy--again! Most of the early garden is in, a lot of it is up--now we need sunshine before it all turns yellow and keels over!
    Having to deal with weather is humbling--nothing we can do to fix it.
    We had a fire in teh fireplace most of yesterday adn i baked which made the house more cheerful.
    I'm glad to be here in KY after the cold years in WY!
