2013 Lawn & Garden photo's

Here yu go guys, I'll try to update at least two or three times over the corse of the summer into fall with as close to identical pictures taken at same angle as possible for comparison.

Lawn


Dogwoods in center are gone and if you notice the fence stake dead center of the pic, have a Pecan tree in the back, no pollination so hoping to get one going in the front to pollinate it plus give us some afternoon shade in about ohhh 20 years










Landscaping
Not much blooming yet due to the weather, not even my lilies have opened yet. But here's a look at the new Landscaping I did last fall, followed by some of the existing.










Like I said, nothing blooming yet but do have 6 Crape Myrtles on order for this area. I'm a bit tired of the Marigolds every year and besides, they take water everyday.


Roses should be blooming soon.


Anyone ready to go fishin' that dogwood tree just screams bass are on the bed


Last years Crape Myrtles we started, hoping for some shade on that brick this summer.


New to the landscaping this spring, extended the brick on out and 3 more crape Myrtles for shade.




Walkway through garden


Garden & Orchard
Not much garden yet and what gardening I do have we'll, the dam beans look terrible and might need to start over and replant when we get a steady heat in the forecast.

Fruit tree's however, AWESOME!!! That is when I can keep from breaking them off at the top of the ground. I've done had to replace a apple tree due to the tractor catching the sheet it was covered with for frost. Like I said, been a cold spring.




Peaches on the left, Cherry on the right and behind the garage 2 small apples.




The first one you see is the replacement apple. Next small guy is a plum I just got.


Another shot of the peaches.


Like I said, there is no garden yet.






Tomato cages just raring and waiting


More to come next month or two.

Garden is in guys
Got the main section in last Wednesday.

Got it all done ahead of the rain that was coming in.

Had to take the fencing down, re till the first couple rows on the left and replant the beans I sowed early April, that was a mistake and I should never had started that early.



50 Tomato plants
4 Bell peppers and onions


5 rows of Okra on the right side


I love the month of May
When I post the June 9 pics a month from now your going to Say holy siht what fertilizer did I use
And by July, you won't see the gas tank from this angle


More to come from the other side when I get that done but its just a small spot for squash & zucchini and cucumbers uffing

I'm beat and I look like a red beat and feel like I've been rolled up hard and put up wet

Oh and I lost 10 Lbs
I'm now 170 Lbs. which is 10 Lbs below my goal weight.

Update!!
We have beans up and Okra also popping up thanks to the 85 degree temps the last week :thumbup

Got the rest of the garden planted yesterday.
Cucumbers against the garage, Squash and zucchini (we love zucchini bread and zucchini & tomato's)
Some more hot peppers, green peppers, a hot pepper I'm trying for the first time from seed.





I grow my own beans I suggest you rabbits do the same. I don't go in no one else's pantry and help myself.


Dead rabbit gets put beside garden as a warning to those who attempt trespassing.

Sorry I didn't get these up sooner, took exactly 1 month from the last set of garden pics and the growth just amazes me.

No photoshop needed, yes these are one month apart :lol













I'll get some lawn and landscape pics up the end of June.

No, usually give it to the neighbor but he wasn't home.

By the way

No peaches to brag on this year I'm sad to say

They got about half dollar size and started falling off for no apparent reason

4 tree's, all did the same so we will be buying peaches this year.

The contact I was using at the University of KY couldn't even explain this one.
