Last weekend, after I worked (remote), I came home and did some gardening. It was so hot out. So, I did some and then took a break.
Nate and I decided to have lunch at Outback. We had a $50 gift card so win, win. Afterwards, we picked up a few groceries at the store and came home.
When we got back, I decided to do some more gardening. I had some dead plants I'd already cleared but needed to put in a trash bag and then of course wash the pots. I needed to pot some plants as well and just sweep the deck.
Here's my poor little aloe plant. Putting it outside was a bad idea. Ever since I repotted the guy, it just wasn't happy. I don't know if it wanted better dirt, more water or more sun. Or maybe it had too much? I'm not sure. I do know next time I go to IKEA, I will pick up a newbie. :)
Here's all the dead plants. Some are dollar flowers I got from lowes. They held on a long time for only being one dollar.
I bought some petunia's and peppermint plants last time I was in lowes. I needed to pot them so I did that after I cleaned up the dead plants and did a little rearranging in the container garden.
Here's a very happy peppermint plant.
I have a scallop zucchini. I love these. It's a blend of scallop squash I grew from seeds. :)
My broccoli is turning kinda yellow. :( I was so happy it was growing too. Maybe it was only gonna be a tiny guy and needed to be harvested already?
I harvested some cherry toms and a green bean.
Squash and tomato
I have lots of bell peppers growing.
More cherry toms
And finally here's the garden after the clean up. WHEW
