Fertilizer Friday

Good Friday Morning. It's that time again each week when we link up with Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday - a time when we like to share what's blooming and what's not. Have you fertilized your babies yet this year? Finally -I did that yesterday. Ya'll head on over to Tootsie's and check out who else is flaunting their spring flowers.

I have some pretty daffodils still a bloomin. This is the first one like this. Did I tell you that the 55 bulbs I bought in January for $5 contained different kinds of daffodils. I love this one that just opened.

I love how this snapdragon keeps showing itself.

This is what I have in various plantings and germination and seedling stage. Many are on their second plantings. Don't know where I'm gonna put it all. I think I might need to create another small garden - perhaps in the back of the house. Most of these come from fellow bloggers. Enlarge to see what is currently going that you may have sent. Several packs from other bloggers didn't make it the first round and they have been started again and a couple just didn't do at all before using all of the seeds. There are still more that haven't made into the seed start yet.

This is how the new porch garden is filling in now. The big mass you see to the right is Breadseed Poppies and a few more plants. There are Red Melon Poppies down to the other end.

Full Tide Iris is up. Sure hope all of the iris's bloom.

The blueberry bush is loaded. Enlarge and check them out.

Check out the cluster of peaches.
The pear tree is producing good but not like the peaches. Little pears.

WE NEED RAIN BAD. The fruit is going to affected by this drought we are currently experiencing. Seems the weather affects is every year with too much rain or not enough. I'm gonna hose them this weekend. It takes a lot of water to make a difference with fruit trees and then it may not be enough. I've been watering the flower gardens as the seedlings are starting to suffer a little. I have watered well over the past three days before adding a small of amount fertilizer. It has been since mid March since we have had any rain to amount to anything.
Thanks for visiting today. Hope you all can get out and enjoy your weekend.

Everything is looking beautiful. Oh, isn't it a shame about the rain. We haven't had any, and aren't supposed to get any. Its a gardener's nightmare!

Beautiful bulbs!! Awesome find!

Maureen said...

My fingers are crossed for your fruit trees. It would be shame to lose them.

Everything looks so wonderful. You better round up a group of children and do some rain dances!

Noelle said...

I hope you get some much needed rain soon!

I can't believe your daffs are still bloomin' down there! Most are gone from here already. We are starting to get to the point of needing rain too. I'm a bit worried it will be a drought summer. But that's negative thinking, ain't it? Got a splash-n-dash the other day, and I think we are expecting another one this weekend. Fingers crossed for us both. Veggie garden is thirsty.

Hi Becca. Just look at all of those little peaches.The tree is loaded and so are your blueberries.You are going to have lots of fruit.
You have a lot of seeds there lady. I have too many too so I start them in stages and will start more when I can get everything outdoors where there is more room.
Your poppies are doing wonderful. Mine look like they are so slow. Still tiny yet.
Have a wonderful weekend.

My daffodils are on the downside, most have shriveled at this point. With the heat we had last week even the tulips are suffering.

Your daffodils look great!

Those 3 acres are going to be blooming like crazy! What a great collection of seeds you have there. I already know of more I'll be saving this year, so I'll be sure to save some for you.
Don't you just love home grown Blueberries? :)

The daffodils are divine. Snapdragons are one of my all-time favorites. I can almost feel the sun on my back! These photos are fabulous!
