What I've got growing


Here are some pictures of things going on in my yard.

Morning Glory's



Broom Corn: Must be 12 feet high


Canna from seed blooming this year??? Wonder why?


Hollyhock from winter sown jugs. Also blooming first year???


Amaranth of some type






The Bird Watchers: If you look closely, you can see they have an extra toe. Looks like they are wearing mittens.



Thanks for looking!!!

Thank you peanut, I did not know that. Gotta go check the others!!
Those are my barn cats. Although all I've seen them catch so far is poor mama Robins.

Thanks too, Sherie and Cfiegel. I try, but with the clay soil and the hillsides, I have days when I just wanna give up. This was the easy section and I dread the steeper parts. I swear someday to eliminate all the weed eating on the steep parts!!

Thanks Vette and Tom. Wish I could find a way to eliminate groundhogs, they've wiped out the beans and carrots.

Thanks Swamplady,
I'm finally getting a start anyway. I find my creativity is much larger than my wallet! I found a big pile of rocks way out in the woods the other day, and my mind just keeps going back to them and how to get them out of there. I already have beds built with them in my mind. Found one the other day that looks like a leg and foot. lol

Talking about cat, I've just adopted a cat, 6y+ about a month ago. I just wondering why she does not eat much, does not like snack, and does not like stay outdoor.

Meli, when they are that old, maybe they are more set in their ways according to how they were previously treated. I have a dog that doesn't know how to play with toys. He'd never had them as he was growing up.
