It's windy and raining outside this afternoon, so I thought I would update on how my garden is coming along.
|Red mini rose...this was my very first mini rose plant. I've since increased my rose garden to include 5 mini plants.|
|Early Alaska Peas|
|I have baby peas started in here.|
|Lamb's Ear and Irises.|
|I had a lot more strawberries but I gave several away. No matter, they will set runners and I'll build up my strawberries again.|
|Asparagus that I started last year.|
|Pink Lemonade blueberry bushes. I was going to separate these guys but they never went dormant this winter.|
|Red Veined Sorrel aka Bloody Dock|
|Part of my back garden.|
|In front is a pot of asters. Behind is a huge pot of Italian parsley that I will take out so I can use that pot for a tomato.|
|I had a huge limb take out my greenhouse when we lived in Woodland. I saved the shelving and decided to use it for my lettuce station. I have several varieties growing plus lamb's quarter.|
|Looking out toward the front of the fifth wheel from the porch. The glider came to us after Bob's mom passed away. We miss her dreadfully, but we think about her every time we sit on the glider and we sit out there a lot!|
|Looking toward the trailer|
|My picnic table|
|KiKi...she "helps" me in the garden a lot!|
|My other bench.|
|We went and bought starter tomato plants this morning. I also got that pretty petunia.|

This year, I got great news! The managers, here in our new park, gave the okay for us to put in a community garden! It's going to be really nice sized. I am spearheading the project. I'm really excited and have been procuring trades for usable seeds that we can plant in there. You all know me...I'll plant enough for everyone! I will keep Baked Lava updated as that project comes along. There is a person in here that has a big tractor with a tiller on it and, I believe, Saturday is when we are going to till up the spot.
I'm wanting to plant corn, beans, squash, cucumbers, pumpkins and some other things in there. All I am asking is that people leave enough produce so that we can save seeds for next year. It's a lot more cheaper to do that than to buy seeds every single year. I also spoke to the manager about using the lasagna garden method throughout the winter to keep the weeds down and, if we do that, we won't have to till again. We're also going to have a compost bin. I'm really excited about this new gardening adventure.
One thing I don't have to worry about is drunk idiots living next door to me and pillaging my produce. I heard, from a reliable source, that even before I decided to have nothing to do with those people that they were stealing from me. Nothing good ever happens to a thief. Nothing. I don't care if it's a tomato or a million bucks, karma will always bite the ass of those who live like that. They cost us several hundreds of dollars with their bullshit. I hear that they were served an eviction notice. I can't say as I'm surprised. I can't say as I care either. I actually think it's hilarious! It's nothing more than they deserve being the thieving losers that they are. Anyhow, enough of them...I wrote that because I know that their creepy daughter likes to stalk me on social media and here on Baked Lava because she has no life and those people are soooooooo worried that I might write something about them. All I can say is that they'll have to wait until the book comes out and not buy a couple of cases of beer to see if I did! As if that's possible for those guys...they live in a liquid medium. It's truly pathetic. But, it's also awesome for me because I do not have to deal with the likes of them any longer! They may have ruined one year's worth of gardening for me, but I will go on and they will, most likely, be living under a bridge!! LOL! :D
Anyhow, enough of those freaking drunk idiot losers...
