What I’m REALLY doing in the garden…last day of June
I just came in from an hour out in the garden! Yep, from 6:30am to now, I puttered in the garden doing what I call ‘watering as needed.’
Lamb’s ears are a good ‘indicator plant’ for watering and when this VERY hardy plant droops, you know it is VERY dry in that area. I have a small patch of Lamb’s ears in many places in the garden, at little cost since you just lay down the seed heads where you want more the next year.
Starring plants and flowers this month
The veg garden
In the picture above,…this is the area I’m working on at the moment, spiffing it up to make it even MORE pleasant to sit here. I rearranged the rocks to make a better semi-circle and add some succulents in three hollow logs I have collected from other places in the garden. I post ‘after’ pictures in an update!
Brachyscome is sure a survivor in the late June garden. I’m surprised at how lush it looks with so little water. Hundreds of periwinkle blue flowers on this cushiony plant!
Turns out I also weeded a bit this day, and clipped down a few plants that have bloomed out, all the time vowing, AGAIN, to come out and thoroughly ‘go over’ one small area each day to REALLY get the garden looking pretty as possible. Do you do that? I’ll let you know if I ever succeed, but until then….
So,…what will be your next thing to do in the garden? What are you really doing? ~~ Sue
