More blooms on this hot, hot day
Tuesday, 06 Jul 10 Sunny 32°C / 90°F
We are reaching into the 40’s with the humidex here in Sarnia – and for us – that’s HOT…but the tomatoes are loving it! I haven’t grown tomatoes before – other than the odd cherry variety – and I’m starting to worry. Some plants have one or two decent sized fruit on them, while others haven’t even started blooming yet. All are under the same conditions….I wonder what the difference is? Guess I will just keep documenting it – and hopefully learn from my mistakes for next year.
In the lily garden – I’m being rewarded with beautiful blooms – most of which I haven’t seen before. Sad part is – our dog used to run through the gardens all the time and the plant markers have almost all been moved, lost or are so faded you can’t read them. I have these blooms that I can’t name – which is a little disappointing – but they are gorgeous anyway.
I had an order that I had placed with Spring Garden late winter – and most of it didn’t arrive until last week. Along with the VERY late shipment came an apology letter and a certificate for free shipping for our next order. The hubby was super pleased because at this point – we thought it wasn’t coming at all. In the order arrived his precious persian palm elephant ear tubers. The first leaf has emerged today and is a nice addition to his collection.
