Garden & Kids 4/25

Well you know me, I like to post pics. No real news here, just some pictures from this afternoon.

Here’s a volunteer, some sort of mint. I didn’t grow any mint and there was none growing here when we moved here 2 years ago. There are two plants… I wonder if seeds got dropped by some birds? I’m tempted to dig it up because I know how invasive the stuff can be.

Another volunteer… some chives going to seed. These have been here for many years, I dug them out of the strawberry planter and then was not intending to save them, so I threw them upside down into the walkway of the garden and ignored them. They must have hibernated last year and then they came up this year with shining colors ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it’s some sort of cabbage but it also volunteered this year. Maybe a lettuce? Anybody have any idea?

Little Rambo playing with the play house. If you happen to notice the dirt around her mouth it’s because I was mixing up some soil blocker mix and she must have thought it looked tasty because as soon as I turned my head she grabbed a handful and stuck it in her mouth. A lil dirt never killed anyone, right? lol… you should have seen her face, it was priceless.

Pictures of all my 5 trees happily in the corner. OH YEAH I FORGOT TO MENTION… lol. Silly ol me decided to go back to Home Depot yesterday to get the Bearss Lime and the Blood Orange trees. I just couldn’t resist. Many people have problems with impulse buying but I tend to do the opposite and NOT buy things when I really should. These trees are such great quality and an excellent buy for $15 so I decided I’d get all 5 types that had caught my eye. They did also have 2 other kinds but not ones I was interested in, so now I have one of each tree that I had liked – Satsuma Mandarin, Navel orange, blood orange, Meyer lemon, and Bearss Lime (plus the two key limes I’m sprouting and all the other stuff).


Some kids suck their thumbs… Little Rambo does this. I don’t know where she got it from but she holds her blanket like that all the time, it’s funny ๐Ÿ™‚

And that’s all I got for the day! Just had to share ๐Ÿ™‚
