I have Gladioli planted in the center of two of the raised beds in my vegetable garden. The idea was that I could cut the flowers to enjoy them indoors, but they are so beautiful, I am hesitant to do so. This morning they are looking even more lovely, dripping with the fine drizzle coming down, and they are so tall. One of them is level with the top of the five foot high trellis which supports the cucumbers.
Within the rustic greenhouse kind of structure on the right, are my tomato plants, and there are ripe Sungold tomatoes within. So my idea to create a little house to provide some extra warmth for the tomatoes, is working rather well, don't you think?
UPDATE , the watering system using the three interconnecting sprinklers, with five different pattern sprays, I installed, is working way better than I expected. I have it set on a timer to come on for five minutes every second day. The second day and five minutes duration watering, seems to be just right, to keep the area which is in the shade, on an incline and very quick to drain, at just the right dampness for optimum growth.
In the past, I had been hesitant to plant too much here before installing the new watering system, because I could not provide enough moisture on a regular basis, and I lost a few of my favorite plants. That is all changed and a visit to the garden center is on my list of things to do.
The other project I have started work on, is too create an outdoor living room.
