Stuff in my Yard :)


Hi everyone,
Heres some pictures of my yard, well, all the plants in my yard. (Theres quite a few). A lot of the plants are showing as many flowers or anything as they did a month or so ago, it seems like this year I planted a lot of spring blooming plants instead of summer ones like I did last year. O well, they still look decently nice


The front of my house (trailer)

WOW. You've got lots of colors and lots of ....everything.
Very nice.
From the pics you posted I can't tell what's your kinda-plant.
Maybe... potted plants?

I love pretty much every plant But yes, I like to keep stuff in pots or containers. It makes them easier to work with. In fact, I need a bigger pot for my peach tree soon.. I wonder what store would have bigger pots then what it is already in..

In the seedlings of stuff that I posted I planted a bunch of tomatoes, multiple types to. Anything from golden nugget, to big boy but as you can see they didn't do too good this year. The weather was really stupid so far this year, and then the pellets I sprouted them in wouldn't soak any water up and so the plants didn't do to good until I replanted them and put them outside.

So we just ended up buying four tomato plants, they look pretty bad and kind of sickly right now though as the person we bought them from didn't water them for like a week or something.

After I re-pot the tomatoes and they look better I will post pictures. Maybe they will get 5' like last year I actually got last years tomatoes taller then me and my mom and they were planted in cat litter buckets.

Your gardens and plants are awesome!

I also do quite a bit of container gardening. My David brings home these huge paint bucket size plastic containers and I use a wood burner and make bunches of large holes in the bottom. Working really well so far.

Hi everyone,
Thanks

If I didn't live in a mobile home I would have more, much more.

The only problem we have with our yard (other then the occasional weed) is how much moss is in the yard. But that isn't really a problem I guess.
