Garden Pictures

The onions and garlic are taking off. We planted them in November and are anxious to harvest, but its not time yet.

My roses are blooming and are gorgeous. Greg bought me this bush for Mothers Day 2 years ago. James bought me one last year that is covered in buds but no blooms yet.

Maybe one day I will figure out why some lines in between my pictures are plain and some are underlined. I'm not doing anything different, maybe I have a non-conforming computer also!

One of my JoAnn's deal was the book "Square Foot Gardening" by Mel Bartholemu (spelled wrong I am sure). I had checked this book out from the library but hadn't bought my own copy yet. Mom found it for me and we got to use a 50% off coupon on it. So the final price was $10! It will be a well read, much referred to book!

  2. YOU-are-the-woman! This is truly inspiring! Question about onions: how do you know when they're ready to be picked???

  3. Katie, The books I read said they are ready to be picked when the green stalks turn brown and start to die down. Then your supposed to pick them.
