been. For one thing, I have a confession to make - I left my plants alone nearly all week. I went on a long vacation. I didn't know what the weather would be like, and I took a gamble on how to water them.
Fourth of July is right around the corner, and the plants are bursting like fireworks! I actually think I'll have the greatest number of blossoms that week, especially with the Billy Ball putting on a show.
The thyme is still producing enough leaves to feed a family, and the tomato is now the largest plant on my balcony. Looks like the watering problems of last year have been solved, and the plants are showing their happiness.
We're a few weeks into Spring, and nature doesn't show any signs of stopping. The grass is greener on the other side, on this side, really on any side that has grass.
Spring has really taken over for the balcony plants. Every plant is growing, and most have nearly doubled in fluffy foliage. I can't help but feel delighted every time I step outside.
Spring has finally sprung in the garden, and everything is getting growing. Most of the seedlings have been transplanted to their long-term homes (at least until they end up in the kitchen...). Check out the post to see how all the plants are getting along!
Spring is starting to roll into town (on the back of a sudden rainstorm). Many of the plants are ready for transplant, and some others are holding on to their winter woes. Looking forward to another week of happy plants!
The Bloodleaf (Iresine) is also known as a Chicken Gizzard, which should say a lot. It's a bright red and purple bundle of joy that loves heat and humidity. Find out how to care for one!
