It has been just a little over one month –
since we replanted the Geraniums-
that are now 4 or 5 years old !
For the first time – we have planted Potato’s !
We also have for the second year –
a flower called –
THE EVENING PRIMROSE !
What is unique about that –
is it ONLY BLOOMS AT NIGHT !
The Tower Gardens are now in production for almost 5 weeks.
We have been eating lettuce since the end of week two.
It will not be long as we have flowers for Tomato’s – Squash and Cucumbers
And Egg plant – herbs – other greens.
We have a total of 8 Potato plants –
this is the first time we have ever planted them !
We never had Green Thumbs
until we bought our first Tower Garden eight years ago !
And – really – it is so easy –
just make sure it has WATER & NUTRIENTS!
Now – I have learned – these are her babies –
she is known as the –
TOWER GARDEN QUEEN !
She has quite the following !
And – you can tell by the results –
I in turn – make sure they have WATER –
They have NUTRIENTS and the vines have a place to climb !
Our Geraniums – I pull up in the Fall –
shake the dirt off –
Stick them right side up in a five gallon pail –
and hang them from ceiling in our unheated garage !
In the Spring – we pull them out –
clean the dead leaves off –
And pot them – water them and just watch them come back.
I am in charge of the lawn outside – that is my time to just relax –
I rather like mowing – making it look nice and neat !
We had a irrigation system put in two years ago –
and finally – this year –
It has recovered and grown in nice and green !
I have a lawn service and have lime spread in the Fall.
All in all – growing vegetables – seeing the colors of our flowers –
Is a form of stress relief for me.
If you have any questions on the growing system
or bringing back the Geraniums from year to year –
Feel free to ask.
I hope you enjoyed my little blog –
