Ok we came from >>> mY gLORIFIED pOTTING sHED - pART 2
going to #3!

Here is the link back to #2

http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/965415/#new

Last I remember was I had just returned from the local garden shop and brought home some potting soil , some annuals and some tomatoes to replace those ones I had lost to damping off.

I spent part of this evening potting up things and so will have to do some photos in the morning!

Well, HAPPY MAY DAY! Todays weather...hmmm... got a little sun, but they say:

Humidity: 82%
Wind: Calm
Barometer: 29.94 in.
Dewpoint: 48F
Visibility: 10SM

Mostly cloudy. Slight chance of showers in the morning... Then a chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 60s. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation 30 percent.

Well, here is where I left off last night after potting some things up that I bought:

I got a busted basket of pank petunias at the store. It was laying on the floor all smashed and I told the clerk I would take it if the price was right for cleaning up the mess! Normally they were selling for $10, but I told the clerk, I would take it and she let me have the thing for $2 so I brought it home and re-potted it. I love trying to get the bargain buys because a lot of times there is nothing wrong with them that a little tender loving care does not help! And well, I have tons of hanging basket pots. The flowers were fine, but the pot was mashed. I scarfed them up, the price was right!

Well, I got me a pile of work to do and I am dancing with the rain again.. OY!

Hey Noah, time to get hammering.. I need a grassboat like they use in Florida in gator country to get any gardening done here. Heck I tried to mow and got the derned mower stuck in a bog!
Thank goodness for chainlink fishing line.. otherwise it would still be swimming in that hole! OOPS!

Well, heres a little pot that I added some color to the vincas with the new annuals. It will look fine in a few days when it fills itself in! I just added different colors of impatiens in that with the vincas.

Then I potted up some marigolds and a stella in this kettle...
There are two kinds of marigolds in there.

Well, I am going to have to finish up the dianthus tomorrow.

A few other things we got done today was to take some columbines out to the woods to get a colony started out there.

I took lots of photos as you can see by the bloomers above and did quite a bit of potting up and bump ups.

It was a lovely Saturday with sun and great temps!

I need to take thse blooms over to stick it in a vase and put some of my "catches for the day" on the in the May 2009. See ya'll there!

Tomorrow I am supposed to be gettign a hosta froma gal not to far where I live and will have to start on the stella clump and the sitrona clumps of dayliles that we dug earlier today.

eYAWN~~~~! GNite! someone stole our sun!

Well, Saturday I did get much done and today hardly anything ... but I did get that hosta from a lady not to far from me. The pot it came in was huge. I am going to have to think on if I will plant that monster! I am trying to think of a way to fill it with something so as where it will not be too heavy. I would like to try to plant a Giant sunflower in it. So it will need a goodly amount of potting mix, but there has got to be away to make it not so heavy when full cuz, I mean this pot is huge and also the pot has another issue in that there is a small crack in it and it is plastic.. so.. I am having a debate. to use it at all. I need to secure the crack to prevent it from going all the way. Any suggestions welcome!

I took the rest of the pictures on the dianthus varieties and other than watering today and running errands.. hmmm that was about all I got done. WIll post the flower photos here tomorrow, but check this monster pot out!

Ok, this morning its quite sunny and nice. I have been out here dividing up those daylilies I dug out a couple days ago. Got 13 new Stella de oros out of the one clump and next I am working on the Citrona.

Moved some marigolds in yellow pots to the garden bed

Cut a couple of aussie willows to start. Need a couple replacement trees.

Need to dig some margarite daisys sometime soon.

Mowed today.

Tomorrow's weather.. oh please no showers... but they say Mostly cloudy with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the mid 70s. Light and variable winds early in the morning becoming south around 10 mph in the late morning and afternoon. Hmm hope it will be more like today. Sunny, nice and mild!

They are not dry so will wait until later, hoping the rain will stay away.. .LOL.

Did one load of dirt to the garden gy the GPS.. still need a bunch of wheelbarrow fulls!

Nothing new blooming or growing in the garden that I have found so no pics today.

Still working on that Citrona clump/ Its a tough one needs to dry a little more before I can break into it. And its huge.

Well the Citrona clump gave 12 new divides. I also did another Stella and it to gave a bakers dozen.

Got Dirtygirls71's parcel mailed and have another going out tomorrow.

Checked the columbines we transplanted and they are doing fine.

Mowed the lawn to tidy it up. Still have over a third to mow that is in very long grass yet and too wet form the flooding. The gardens for the veggies are unworkable due to the excessive wet. So my potatoes are stitting in a bag growing shoots and will probably not see the garden.

I was going to wheelbarrow some ammended soil over to a garden bed I was working on, but my arms gave out so will do that tomorrow...maybe.

Least the sun was out for the greater part of the day and well,the rain gauge did say we got a half inch last night...like we needed more!

Hi blossombuddy! Isn't this rain just awful? We smushed the tiller as best we could through what's to be my new garden, and now I'm turning it up by hand gradually as we get a couple of dry days. Who needs a gym membership when she's fool' enough to try to garden in wet clay!

My bro came down to cut the saplings out of the fence, and my two-year old nephew picked up clods of soil, said ball!, and threw them around. I'm glad someone's enjoying this mess!

Looks like you're keeping yourself busy with potting. Very pretty. Hopefully, in a few months I'll have cut flowers to post in this forum. Just gotta be patient with mother nature, I guess.

Here's one of the giant alliums I planted last fall. Pretty, but they sure don't smell good. They aren't as big as I thought they'd be, but maybe they just need some time to store up energy and they'll be bigger next year? Such pretty flowers, I think.

Im taking a break today, but need to water.

We hammered fencing yesterday. I am trying now to think of how to purdy it up a bit. Im thinking lattice and daylilies on the botton to hide the rough sawn wood on the used privacy fencing.

I will have to give a friend of mine a holler for her wild days! Not that I want the orange ones, but want somethign that is gonna grow fast and finish that bed ASAP!

I got over my cold but ended up at the pain clinic for some much needed and over due therapy. I kinda crashed this week and needed a rousing round with the chiropractor. Thne the hub had an injury so we are dealing with that. Whaaat a week. SO ok, while I m sitting here straightaway from the dentist on top of that waiting for the numbness of that to were off after havign a tooth extracted..., I thought it would be nice to just sit in the office today and get my new annuals posted here that I shot earlier this week and that I am behind in posting.

SoOooo ok, here they are! The pansies, one on one!

Well, today we got tomatoes planted and I transplanted some peppers to large pots.

Moved the pepper pots over to the little veggie patch. Put tree cages on the tomatoes hoping to keep the bunnies out. I just hope they do not decide to nibble the pepper pots.

I moved a bunch of green leaved hostas to our little sitting garden and also some varigatied hostas there too.

Mounted our watergirl siloutte, took a bunch of snapdragon pots, marigiold pots, the pansys, dianthus, a few hanging baskets and the window boxes over. Mowed the area around the sitting area and arranged the furniture and pots. I also took some daylilies over. Those are going in another project nearby.

Found some volunteer cherry tomatoes growing in the little tomato plot from last year so I potted them up to hold until we have the bigger garden worked.. It has just been to wet to plant the veggie patch. Looks like I will have nearly 100 of those little cherry tomatoes. So we are thinking to get them in the big garden as soon as it is workable and donate the maters to the food pantry! Especially since we have yet to get the taters in. I doubt anymore at this late of a planting we will get any potatoes, but if perchance we can get the garden worked this week yet, there might be a slim chance and so may as well still try.

Our sunflowers look like they are startig to pop.

Guess I will have to try to take more pics of what we did today.

Well, yesterday we dug margarites, shasta daisy, an iris and some mums. All had to be moved.

Today I am hoping to move a couple daylilys, put the tarp on the hoophouse and cut some hay.

Looks like we have a small repreive from any rain... but that is totally debatable with the way we have been getting pop ups.

Plus getting such a late start this afternoon...

Looks like a chance of rain, but I am going to water anyway. If it rains it will be later this afternnon and everything in containers are dry already

The sunflowers I potted are growing pretty good as are the ones in the big plot.

Still need to dig the siberian iris, a couple citrina daylilys, the honeysuckle vine and a few snowbal bush starters.

Did not get the melons in yet. Need to till the garden once more and then get them in.

I seeded some cleomes.

Potted a couple more peppers. Now those are done.

Need to rearrange our sitting area. We brought the wooden box over and I dont like where it is so have to move the potted hostas and marigolds then redo the plan. ANd fix the box...it got a little mangled in the move.

Have to bring some dirt over to the new daylily bed too before I can plant that. The lattice offer got taken so I am still looking for lattice there. Owell, can always install that later.

Picked some asperagus and took a hike over to the iris bed.. the purples are in full glory as are someof the yellows. They are doing great this year except for all the graass in the beds.

Struck a couple cuttings this morning too.. a few coleus, the blue hydrangea and some begonias. I am out of potting soil.

Cherry tomatoes on the left.. the new cuttingson the right. Those tomatoes are growing fast!

Well, we got the flower box fixed and the sitting area rearranged again.

Yesterday we did get the potatoes in and I guess it was the day before we did get the watermelons, cantalope and squash in.

Still have to plant the cherry tomatoes to the garden, but they are not ready to go out yet.

I am so far behind on getting my traders caught up and need to update in my lists and so I hope that no body is thinking that I abandoned them if I had not gotten to their trades yet. Between the weather and the injuries and trips to the clinic.. it has been really frustrating. I am just running so late.

Well, I best get going.

Well yesterday I moved the four oclocks out of the GPS. Put them in that huge pot with some marigold seed and some dusty millers.

Looks like rain again today.

Showers and a chance of thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 70s. Southeast winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation 80 percent...

Well the other day I got another flat of petunias so I worked them up this morning along with straightening the GPS. Sheesh what a mess.

Had to bring in potting soil, move stuff around and then did some transplants..put the gomphrena and some petunias in three large pots and took them to our sitting area, Made hanging baskets of the rest of the petunia flat.

Got the place ready for odd jobs and doing catchup work.

Well. we got 2.5 inches of rain.

Its a new month so I guess I will start part 4 of the GPS. Will post a new thread link today.

Here is another snap dragon. It is white, but seems to have a pinkish cast to it.

I need to finish logging my May 2009 blooms and work on the trade list so I wil be very busy again today.
