So after learning how to side dress, which sounds like I am cooking a turkey or something.. I went out and did just that.. I put compost on the side of my Pumpkins and my Bird House Gourds..
Thank you husband for helping me... I loved that you put your hands in the ickky compost too.. It was hot and steamy huh? Just kidding!! (not really!!)

Cabbage and Broccoli Planting Day!!
I did plant cabbage seeds and broccoli seeds too. Where the tomatoes once stood now in hopes of cabbage.. I have never ever ever, planted cabbage or broccoli, so I hope that something comes especially because the seeds are kind of old... Like two years old...
Broccoli on the other hand are fresh, and I planted them in the area of where the chili peppers were once being nurtured in hope of revitalization... but as you may know that didn't happen...

Bigger than I had imagined..
The eggplant has had a great summer so far, it has grown very large, so much so I ended up putting a little bit of a fence in front of it to tame it.. It was hard for my husband to mow around it, or even weed eat the edges. It also was covering the grass and making it turn brown and ugly. So, with the fence, I lifted the limbs up and now it can probably breath under there too.
So, looking at where I want my container garden out in the front yard, I am a type of person like symmetry, I am not to picky and like things as casual as possible, but symmetry is important to me. when I ended up lining up the pots to the windows I realized that I needed to more pots. This is what I mean..
To the side of that, it is as bear as it can ever be... so I think two more would look great..
The theme for them will be Salsa and Grilling Containers,
For the salsa I will have peppers, tomatoes, green onions, and cilantro... For the grilling, I will have peppers, eggplants, maybe zucchini, tomatoes, and basil... parsley to make it pretty.
That shabby not chic shrub!
So I will be taking this shrub out soon and I can't wait to put another container there, But I think I want to put something other than a salsa garden container there... certainly think that I have to put a lot of though into this container.. you know to make it different.
Something to share...
The lighting of this plant was real neat, It was a warm light, so much so when you looked at it it made you feel warm without sweating.. It made me feel happy and feel a giddy of delight.

Hope you see what I mean...
