My garden grows....


Happy Friday Y'all!

I got nuthin' to blog about .

My house is a pig pen, o'Reilly barfed on the living room floor and my refrigerator is about to grow legs if i don't clean it out.
ACK!!






I DO have a miracle on my back patio !



Those of you who know me, know my mad plant killing skills.

Well...check THIS out.

Can you believe it???


Click on the pictures to see the full sized version.









Squash!Actually growing flowers and everything.











Tomatoes thriving like weeds people!

the only problem is , being as cheap as I am......I refused to pay 6 bucks each for tomato cages.

Instead ,I bought some cheap pvc pipes. (which I plan to fashion into tomato stakes. )

However , I need one of my handy dandy neighbors (of the male variety) to cut the pipes in half for me.

G5? LakeFarmer?? Anyone with a saw???


Have a great day peeps!

Luv me

A life long sight for me. I will just cry if anything happens to these plants NOW. lol

I am thoroughly impressed with your growing skills. I cannot grow anything...and I think you have said that you normally can't, either. SO, WAY TO GO!

Smocha - I will be happy to saw up the pvc pipe for you with my handy dandy saw. Just bring em over. Pvc pipe is rather slick for a tomato to climb on but maybe... Wood is better. But you can tie em to the pvc but may be too slick to support a knot. G5
