We have had a lot of rain lately. I think we got rain for like a a week and a half straight. So annoying. I love rain but I hate downpours. We needed the sun to shine. I had to move my containers in the greenhouse so stuff wouldn't flood.
I packed everything in there because I didn't want to lose my plants.
Today, I decided to bring everything out and check all the plants to make sure they were good from the rain. I added some more dirt to some of the pots that had some excess water. I also cleaned out my greenhouse. I had some trash in there I needed to get out and I swept and wiped down my shelf.
My succulents are doing well. I still need to pot 3 and re-pot another. I picked up some more ceramic pots this past week at the dollar tree. All they had were orange so I picked up the last 4 they had. I need to get some more small river rocks tho. Might be making a dollar tree trip this week.
I also got some mushrooms from the dollar tree. There's a cute fairy garden section. They were sold out of everything but they had some more items restocked when I was in there. I had to get the shrooms. haha
From all the rain.....you can see some of the flooded mess.
I did use up all my dollar tree river rocks and put them in the gnome garden. All I need now is a fence. I also need to repaint some of these guys to make them like new again.
We had a visitor this past week. When I was filling up my water jug I saw a baby bunny. I had Nate come outside and he came over and picked up the little guy. He wasn't scared of us at all.
I had a ladybug visit as well last weekend when the sun was briefly out.
I forgot to mention last weekend I planted some cucumbers inside.
I also planted some potatoes last weekend.
I have several small sprouts. YAY!!!
I have some iris in my front flower bed. One fell over and uprooted from a fast storm that passed through. I planted it in front of the greenhouse but then decided to put it in a pot this afternoon.
It might be moved again before it gets it's final place. haha
I went to lowes this past week. I picked up a cherry tomato plant and 2 peppers plants. I got some fresh dirt too. :)
My sunflowers in the ground are taking off. I took down the netting system I rigged up and have now placed a bunch of forks around the sunflowers to keep predators out.
I planted the sunflowers I had in the greenhouse. I figured they needed to be with the other sunflowers.
I planted my lonely green bean in the ground. I also have a trellis ready for when it gets bigger. If you look close enough you will see some sprouts from the mixed flowers I planted in ground.
Inside my house at the window my plants are doing so great. They loved that the sun was finally shining today.
I had to tape the peas to the window like I did in the past. They needed something to help them stay up.
And here they are today. So big. I'm gonna have to re-pot these soon.
My chives. I love these and I have no idea why I never kept these before. I love going over and snipping some and sprinkling them in dinner.
That's my update for now. I hope the sun stays around for a while so my plant babies can get real big.
