Show and Tell Friday (6/22/07)

Welcome to "Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!

Okay, it has been requested that I show a picture of my garden. Sorry it isn't the greatest but you can get a general over view. Due to the unusually dry weather we had the last month some things didn't do well at all. My strawberries I bought...forget it...I think I got 4 berries. When it was time for me to "replant" a few things, that is when I hurt my back and never got it done. At least my tomato plants are looking good. I hope that I get some bell peppers this year too. They have been really hard to grow the past couple of years. Anyway, here is the picture. On the left is my bed of various lettuce and my cherry tomatoes. The middle one has 2 mortgage lifter plants, bell pepper, eggplant (experimental for me...will have to wait and see how they do), and 1 spaghetti squash plant. Then my little bed off to the right are the strawberries. Now I am off to see what everyone else has! :)



*I forgot to say that Mortgage Lifter plants are a type of tomato and there are cabbages in the middle bed as well.*

What a wonderful thing to have. To have a vegetable garden is a dream of mine. I do hope your "experimentals" work:) Thanks so much for sharing and giving me and us ideas.
Blessings to you,

Ok, I have to ask, what is a mortgage lifter plant? The drought here has been awful, between the lack of rain and the squirrels my garden looks very sad.

Ladysnow,
I'm impressed with anyone that can grow anything! Why do you call the middle plants mortgage plants?

Beautiful gardens, if only I had a green thumb....I'm more like the thumb of death when it comes to plants and flowers LOL

I wondered what a mortgage lifter was, too -- same thing as a cash crop, something you raise to sell, I'm guessing? I love how you have them spaced. Very pretty plus easy to get to.

It looks simply loverly, darling! But, isn't that some cabbage in that middle bed? :-D You should be eating lots of salads. Don't pull the lettuce, cut it off at the ground and let it regrow. Thanks for the picture!
