07.june.2008 :: saturday :: the heat is on!
It is mega hot outside today. close to 100 degrees out. probably too hot to be planting stuff, but i can't resist it. i had a dozen or more tomato plants left over after planting them over memorial day weekend. i couldn't bring myself to just toss the extras, so i put five in the butterfly&bee garden this morning with a healthy dose of cow manure compost. it'll be an interesting experiment to see how they do compared to the ones i'm growing in buckets on the back deck. speaking of the butterfly&bee garden, it's really coming into its own these days. the cornflower really came in nicely. it ended up getting hickacked--under its own weight or by the stray dog that's taken up residence next door, i don't know--but seems just as happy all toppled over. and the bee balm is starting to flower and already doing its job attracting bees. the lavender is filling in nicely, too. here's a couple photos taken just this afternoon!
