Off to your left from the arbor is some more monkey business. Six tomatoes all different in three Topsy Turvey growing slieves. The earliest is a grape tomato just now turning white.
Let's See Your ARBORS and TRELLISES! Part 2
Thats a wonderful spot.I like the slant that continues the roof line.
Very nice! Now what are you going to grow on them ?
Not sure yet. I love lab-lab (egyptian pea vine) and once saw it growing with morning glories, but trying to find hte picture. Looking at everyone else's pictures to get ideas.
Farmgirl, Your gardens are so beautiful have you done all that yourself? Love the trellises, Great placement on the fist pic. I have just gotten a Hyacinth Bean and just love the look of it. We will see how it does for use. I was wondering about The roof on that bird feeder is it a green roof, looks like it could be?
Yep - me, mysself, and I. My husband farms, so I get a little help here and there when he's available. he did make me the arbors though!! The blue bird feeder has moss rose planted on it.
I thought that roof looked green (planted). How is that working?
ge1836, that is looking very nice. Ah yes, helpful children I have 4 grown 2 girls and 2 boys. My son's are very handy and have big muscles. LOL Right now not a lot of help as they are both working big time hours but they will come when really needed. The girls do to in their ways and they are all very good and helpful to their grandparents. I have been working on a new bed. It will be a long strip that will run down the side of the veggie garden and while I was working I've been thinking about putting in a walkway. There is a wide grassy path that leads down from the front yard that runs between the veggie garden and the evergreens to the barn. We use it all the time and I was thinking once the new strip garden gets put in maybe I should think of some type of hard-scape walkway that there will be no mowing that will need to be done down their.
Hi! This is Ric. Holly can think of hardscape all she wants. For the time being I think I'll mow!!! LOL She already has 3 other "hard" jobs in the works.
Hi, Ric. It's okay. We all know that lawns are a guy thing. Women usually see them as a big waste of space that could be taken up by nice flowers instead.
I'm finding it hard to keep watered, so trying moss rose this year. I'm trying to find hte picture from the magazine where i got the instructions. They had it planted with hens and chicks and such.
Ah yes the mention of grass. If you all could get the cut set at three and a half inches or four within a year you would have better grass, less weeds, less need of water and less grass cutting because it is not racing to save itself from a golf club scalping. I had trouble with my family and help setting my mowers for a closer cut. All mowers here are now welded in place to cut four inches.
Albums is me from now on
