The earlier tulips have already started to drop their petals, but the French Blend Rose tulips I planted last fall are just now at their best! I love the colors, and am considering planting only apricots and pastel pink tulips for next year.
Here is the support I built for the pumpkins. I have a feeling they will outgrow it before long! As you can see, I'm running behind and part of the garden hasn't been worked yet. The nights are still rather chilly, so I've been afraid to plant corn and beans yet. If the cold persists much longer I'll just have to plant and hope for the best, though. Our season is too short on both ends to allow for much delay.
The Fall bulb catalogs have started arrivng in the mail. I enjoy looking through them, but it's a little depressing to be planning for Fall planting right now! Lately, I've been daydreaming about starting an indoor window garden to get me through next winter. Maybe I'll share some of those ideas in my next post!
