This morning after I did a little gardening in my back yard I played a little with my succulents. I have found some cute litle containers for them at yard sales, rummage sales and at the flea market ...I got this one on Sunday...and planted it with a few babies...
This yellow one is just like the brown one...more babies in this one. They both have small holes at the bottom so I put a small piece of screen in there...I only paid $3 for the two of them...so that's a good thing...they are small and cute!
Here's the little measuring cup I showed you before...I was tempted to just use it as a measuring cup, but it was so dirty when I bought it and the stains wouldn't come out from the inside...so here it is as a succulent pot! I fit 3 little babies in there!
Here's some of my containers all made...I need some little things to put in the pots and find homes for them too...but they are happy here right now.
I also planted some more babies in my cups the kids got for Don's party in March. I had to transplant the violas in the yard...they dried out too quickly in these little cups...but I think the succulents will be quite happy!
Here's a close up of how they look right now...soon they will fill in and look really great!
The eggplants are flowering...soon we will have yummy eggplant...one of my favorites!!
And we have tomatoes...we've had them for quite a while...Don likes to pull them before they are completely ripe and we put them here until they ripen...They tend to crack for some reason if we keep them on the vine until they are completely ripened...I have no idea why...I garden by the seat of my pants...I see what works here and what doesn't...I have no clue what I am doing sometimes...just what works in my yard!
A little gnome guards the radish pot...I thought I'd try them in a pot to see how they do...I have some salad mixes in other containers too...this way I can control the shade and sun they get...we'll see how this works out...and the bugs don't get in the pots either...I have them on the back porch and we turn them everyday too...I thinned the radishes out...I hope they grow OK in the pot...have you ever grown them in a pot?
It's warming up around these parts...when I came in to eat lunch ...it was 90...a little warm for this time of year...but this has been a weird winter and spring weather wise...It's supposed to cool down a bit by Friday...I sure hope so!
I'm ready to get back to my sewing machine...until next time....have a great day!!!
