In Honor of Earth Day

  • by

Hope everyone is doing something for Mother Earth today – even if it is something simple like picking up a few pieces of trash… or if it is something like recycling a few plastic bottles… maybe planting a tree.  Nothing is too small – so do your part if you can.

Shala snapped some pics  yesterday to show off our garden and to show that we are doing our part for Mother Earth.  In other words… happy Earth Day – ENJOY!

Pictures of Spartium Junceum (Spanish Broom in bloom)

Our Spartium Junceum (Spanish Broom) has just started to bloom… this was an addition last year that has really taken off and smells FANTASTIC.  Which is awesome, since it is at the end of our raised beds and we get to smell it while we toil in the soil.

Pictures of Cuphea hyssopifolia (Mexican Heather)

We just stuck some Cuphea hyssopifolia (Mexican Heather/False Heather) in a few gaps along our fence this past month.  They are barely getting started… and are taking a beating by the BIG WHITE DOG (Izzy).  Still hanging in there and blooming too.

Pictures of Passiflora Caerulea (Passion Vine)

This Passiflora Caerulea (Passion Vine) was added last year as a $0.99 plug – and is now crawling down our fence and check the awesome alien-like blooms!  They are so epic.

And it is just starting… look at all the blooms just building up.  This thing is about to explode.  We haven’t seen any Gulf Fritillary Butterflies just yet – but won’t be long.

Tomatoes Planted In Texas - When To Plant Tomatoes In Texas

Lastly – we stuck some tomatoes in the ground last night!  4 different kinds – just 4 plants at the moment.  Better Boy, Rutgers, Large Red Cherry & Beef Steak – we are ahead of the game!  All grown from seed of course… be jealous… be very jealous.

Do something for the Earth today… it is Earth Day for heaven’s sake – we will spend some times planing after work.  Maybe drink a few beers… kick back and relax in the garden.
