Bar & Grill [Public] / Re: The Garden Thread that two people wanted

I think after mulling it over, there is a reason sweet potatoes have a reputation as a Southern food.  I may try to get an organic, non sweet potato and try that. My market you had to buy a 5 lb bag but maybe Whole Foods sells them one at a time.

Edit - Morning glories are coming up by the mailbox. This is from seeds that dropped last year.  :banana:

Oh the flowers look amazing Jan. Jealous. Deadheaded most of the roses and they will bloom again, but nothing right now, save Ebb Tide and Munstead Wood.

Every time you have posted a picture of your village, the landscaping looks amazing.


Thanks. It's the keen gardener residents who look after the common garden. But we are blessed with living in a sub-tropical climate and just about everything grows in profusion. Lots of swapping of plants and rescuing from the garden refuse areas  Grin.  We are about to start another cacti/succulent garden in an area that has been neglected. Trying to plant stuff that doesn't need much attention or watering once planted. Bromeliads are a good choice and we have those in abundance, but we once planted some near the exit gate and the lady who lived next to it insisted we take them out as they encourage mosquitoes (true, as they hold water  :icon_rolleyes:).

Lily - I googled St. John's Wart and we get that here, though I've never seen it flower. Maybe I'll find a spot where I'll let it be instead of pulling it. Unfortunately I tried it once for depression and it just made me feel really weird, so I won't get any use out of it.

I tried St. John's Wart and it made me feel weird as well. Didn't help either.

Good luck. You inspired me to apply for some Kobo promotions so thanks for that.

Bought a rain gauge and mounted it on the fencing. Now await rain  Grin . But we are in mid winter and we get very little rain, so I suppose we will have to wait until summer  :icon_rolleyes:
