    As a avid gardener Spring is here and Plants are budding and blooming.. Here are some pic's I took yesterday... Let's see whats growing or going to be planted, Plans, tips... Etc for your Garden/ yard... BTW the Lawn was done from scratch with seeds... I hand picked 3 different Tall fescues and also made my own top soil from horse manure( 40 tons for the whole front and back yard) due to my soil is 80% sand and needed a lot of organic material for anything to have a chance... The rose's were all bought 1 foot high..... I started everything from scratch 3 years ago
    Hardiness zone 7a

    Grass is cut @ 3.5 - 4 inches and cut at 1 inch for winter for a few reasons.. 1. It's a Tall fescue:rolleye:
    2. You don't have to water it as much ( Deep root system and being so tall it helps keeps the moisture in the soil)
    3. Helps to keep weeds out ( I don't have a weed problem and don't have to use any herbicides )
    4 Only use slow release corn gluten Meal fertilizer and not the fast release petroleum base fertilizers that most big stores sell
    5. Cut short in the fall so grass keeps long roots and doesn't get frost/ freeze damage

    I have a small vegetable plot and a few outdoor containers. This week a neighbor gave me a tomato plant(I'm guessing its a standard one), I also planted 3 heirlooms tomato plants (a multi-colored one, a yellow one, and a purple one). I put out a basil bush I've been working on indoors for about a month now (my huge indoor basil plant died last year :( ). Today I also planted 4 cherry pimento pepper plants and 3 habenero plants. Pico De Gallo will be had. :cheer:
