About a month ago, I sprained my ankle, so I have not been doing much in the way of gardening lately, and may not be for a while, yet. It could be a tiny stress fracture, but is probably a severe sprain, so until I find out, and likely for a while after that, I will be hobbling around in a walking boot. Rest assured, I have big plans for both the yard and the herb/veggie garden for when I am released. At least I can admire the things that are blooming. Below are photos of a few of the flowers I have blooming now. All of them can take full sun.
My arugula has bolted (gone to seed) and, therefore, has developed a pretty hot flavor, at least to my taste buds. My beautiful cauliflower also bolted before I could cut it. The chili peppers are a beautiful red, but I can’t get to them to pick them. The collards look great, but I can’t pick them. If anyone near here wants any or all of them, call me, leave a comment below, or e-mail me at the address on the “Contact Me” page of this site. They are free to a good home.
Meanwhile, in addition to enjoying my flowers through the windows and from the patio and front walk, I have begun a genealogy project that I have planned for years. I was amazed at what I found, but much documentation is still needed. I’ll see you in the garden soon. For now, I’m back to doing genealogical research. Wish me luck.
