I'm really enjoying our 80 degree weather. However, by tomorrow, a cold front is moving in and there might be SNOW up at the horse ranch! YES! Brrrrr.....!!!
So, yesterday I went back to the garden center, bought 4 more snapdragons (since the hummingbirds like them), 2 verbenas, 1 mint, and 3 packages of a miniature sunflower. These only grow to be 2-3 feet tall, so I planted them next to the railroad ties raised bed, so they won't block the afternoon sun. I had 7 cabbage plants from school on Friday. Every 3rd grader got to take home a cabbage plant, and there were about 16 left, so I took 7. They are now happily planted in the raised bed, along with the mint. I figured the mint would discourage some of the cabbage moths....???
I'll go out this morning and take some more photos. I'm really enjoying my front yard garden this year. I hope the plants do well with all the El Nino storms forecast!
Here are a few photos from yesterday:
