Pictures of plants, as one does. If the formatting is wonky, I don't even care and Blogger is terrible.
In the kitchen windowsill, I have an aloe vera plant named My Days of Not Taking You Seriously Are Certainly Coming to a Middle. I dunno, these things just happen. Anyway, it's very handy when one burns oneself cooking dinner and also provides the important service of obscuring the lovely view of the trash cans.
On the front porch we have Pepper Potts, so called because she is a peppermint plant and lives in a pot, because I have been suitably warned about invasive species.
Also on the front porch, purple tulips. These were my late grandma's favorite flower.
Right now they look like this, which is less impressive. When I get a moment I want to rip out the evergreen shrub and hostas (I don't LIKE evergreen shrubs and hostas, okay?) and put the tulip bulbs in there along with a bunch of other flowers.
In the side yard we have my little square foot garden box. I think this diagram is mostly accurate except that I got nervous and planted like twice as much of everything as I was supposed to. Everything but the tomatoes has been planted at this point; those are going in as soon as I get the seedlings from a friend's 7-year-old who's running a nursery business this summer.
Sugar snap peas. They are having a hard time with the heat lately, but fortunately Cat loves dragging her tiny Paw Patrol watering can over and dousing them thoroughly.
I think these are parsley but they are still teeny-tiny like that so who even knows?
These are a small cucumber that says "pickling hybrid" on the seed packet so by gum I am going to pickle them. In mason jars, no less.
I call this Teeny Weeny Zucchini, because it is. One hopes it will get MUCH larger considering it has an entire quarter of the garden box as its allotment. Also I want to seduce my neighbors into being my friends by giving them zucchinis.
Wait, or is it zucchinis that make people hate you? Social skills are hard.
I think, based on placement, that these little guys are basil. I'm kind of just leaving in all the random sprouts until they have 2-3 sets of leaves and I can actually tell if they're herbs or weeds.
And here's a random picture of some wild violets just because.
