This is how I feel today....new baby kittens and they have played hard. I have been watering twice outside on the wagon tables. You see how everything looks, looks awesome.
new kind of succulents...kitty chick We are tired....
pretty excited how the plants are looking...watering two times a day, helps with this hot weather. We have had rain too, so they love that water and blooming all over the place.
It is warm today, but humidity is down. Still the temperature is Thermometer says 86 degrees at 2:45 PM, no breeze so it feels warm. Watering with the sprinklers it does feel good to get wet.
I am feeling like those baby kitties need to take a nap. BUT can’t do that. I am really proud how nice the wagon tables look with all these blooming plants, growing tomatoes, and peppers. Perennials are happy, herbs are good. It takes twice a day to water. I start early in the morning and stay late at night to make sure everything is watered twice. Looks like we might get rain on Tuesday, 50 percent. I am hoping that you that haven’t gotten any rain will get some. The rain has been so spotty.
Still planting in the greenhouse. Starting to work on more succulents, they go out as fast as I plant them. I start them at .50 so makes it fun for the gardeners to watch them grow. Nancy has been planting hostas, dahlias, star gazer lilies, crocosmia, iris, double oriental lily white and one is pink. Calla lilies, dahlia dinner size plate blooms, and a new one for both of us is Tuberosa. They are in the miracle house( greenhouse) so growing will be good. You know, I said I need to be cloned 12 times, so this is one of the cloning jobs. Wanted to do it 3 weeks ago, but they are planted now.
We will be at the Franklin Co Fair, in Hampton in July and then there is the Herb Festival in Greene on the last Sunday of July. So have a market for them in July.
Last night the West Fork Winners 4-H club was here and planted pots for the nursing home in Sheffield. I also had them plant some of the fair pots. 15 members plus some parents. They really did a good job.
I am here from 9-6 on Monday thru Saturday, Sunday 1-6. When the end of June comes, it is near 80 days in a row that I have worked. BUT as my dad would have said, “Make the hay when the sun shines.” Have to sell plants when the planting is going on. Stop in and see us. LOVE that. Stay safe, stay cool, till next week, this is Becky Litterer, Becky’s Greenhouse, Dougherty Iowa email@example.com 641-794-3337 cell 641-903-9365
