I got some rain!!! Did you see me jumping for joy? I did. It rained for 3 days and I guess I received about 5-6" of rain. The grass is greener and the flowers are happier. But you know what that means - WEEDS - again. I'll take the weeds over seeing the plants struggling any day.
Love the cannas. The plants get so big and the blooms are even bigger (or so it seems).
I am loving the Sun Cherry Zinnias. So far the plants are not too tall either - maybe 24-30" which is just right in my opinion.
I believe the seeds for this zinnia came from Lona. It would be Zinnia Starlight Rose.
This is a problem I have with zinnias every year. They fall over and a gust of wind comes up and over they go. I guess I could put the tomato baskets in the garden but I hate the wire cages in a flower garden. What do you do when yours fall over?
The tomato plants are loaded. Notice the extra amount of foliage on the tomato plants. The person who planted them decided that they needed a lot of tomato fertilizer. An entire bag, 1.5#, of tomato fertilizer was applied over 5 weeks. I actually thought they would die but it caused the stalks on the plants to be enormous.
The cages are leaning now. Oh well we have more tomatos than will be eat at my house.
On Saturday and Sunday it rained all day so I cooked up some good pasta salad and soup.
I added some cheese cubes to the salad and it was very good.
Cheeseburger Soup is so good. This is the first time I've made it and it won't be the last. I loved it.
Here is where I found the recipe.
I used a little white pepper jack velveeta on the top for garnish and pickle relish and bacon. I did not cook the Weight Watchers version. I'm looking forward to this again.
Hope a nice weekend.
