|The aloe is spread out for the first time, with some space between plants!|
Alas, Cathy had other things that were always more important to do, and her bed just sat there full of weeds. My offer was to trade some clay which I'd purchased in exchange for her bed, which she'd rented from the Rec department. She was agreeable, so last Sat. I pulled all the weeds from it.
She has plenty of clay at this time, but I gladly traded the one bag that I probably wouldn't use for this patch of dirt.
|My first plot, with beans, sunflowers, basil, tomatoes, marigolds and coleus!|
|The Kalanchoe is blooming, and will probably become twice this size with room for growth. I've had this plant for over 30 years, in various growths off the original.|
|Maybe these giant sunflowers will produce blooms someday soon! I planted some which are deep red, and am looking forward to them.|
|These are the second crop of sunflowers in a second bed|
|Two bean plants have begun to produce some little green beans|
And I also purchased two sweet potato slips which are hardening up in soil in a window at home. I've already transplanted a half dozen basil plants also. I'm afraid my new plot will not be able to contain them all. So it's going to be first come first planted.
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
