Last time, I mentioned that my seedlings tend to die. I went to WalMart, got a $10 Grow light, and jury-rigged a set up for my babies.
This being my wedding anniversary, I told my husband I wanted to get garden stuff for my present. I got a dwarf banana tree, a red navel orange, a satsuma tree (for my husband), a mulberry bush, a citronelle plant with a pot so we can take it wherever we are sitting, a treatment for the stinking ants that are eating my okra, a snake plant to clean the air in our bedroom, baby onion plants, and five bags of manure. Yes, I bought bags of poop for my anniversary! No, that is not a commentary on my marriage.
The manure will be spread on the garden next week and tilled in for the broccoli, cabbage, and beets. As you can see from the first picture, I have a lot of work ahead of me.
