hado's folly


June, 2007

More gorgeous weather. We took a ride to a garden center that had great native plants and bought some heirloom tomato plants, some basil and cilantro. I wasn't planning to plant any food but decided to throw a few in at the last minute. Now that I had this plot that had lots of manure-y soil I should grow something there.

And I finally admitted to myself that those 3 big plants are weeds. Just took a few more pictures of them - they are so robust!

Here they are - my awesome weeds. I pulled them out after taking this picture.

My tomato, basil and cilantro plants.

A little weeding.

The lilacs are doing well - wonder how long til they have flowers.
