Red plastic

I couldn't resist spending a few extra dollars at Gardener's supply co. on some red plastic to go under the tomato plants. It is supposed to increase tomato production. Mark thinks it must be a scam. we'll see...

Water Garden

The water garden is up and running finally. I decided this year I was going to go to Webb's in Fallston to get some advice since I haven't been successful in the past few years. I got a great water lilly, dwarf horsetail rush and a purple flowering plant that I can't remember the name of. She suggested that I move the garden into some afternoon shade. Hopefully that will work. I forgot to swipe some floating plants from mom and dad's garden so I will have to go buy some. Emma can't wait to buy some fish for the pond. Hopefully this year they will last more than a week!


There are a few plants that I have that grow well in Arizona and Connecticut despite the difference in climate. This Primrose is one of them. When I bought it I thought it couldn't possibly be the same one I had in AZ but is looks and acts exactly the same. It spreads rapidly but is easy to pull up if it gets out of control. Here is is in AZ:

Rose Bugs

The leaves on the rose bushes are being eaten again this year. I'm going to spray them with insecticidal soap and see what happens


The Iris that mom gave me are blooming this year. Mine are not. I found out that this is a division from one that I bought mom at the Tucson Botanical Gardens plant sale several years ago.

Plant Markers

I love the Dollar bins at Target. I recently found these plant markers. I think the Herbs are going to have to move to pots this year. I need more room for vegetables.
