About Me

My photo
Montgomery, Alabama, United States
I'm a Zone 8. I'm doing a little gardening to satisfy a curiosity to see whether or not I can do it. People make it look so easy-- what's stopping me from making it work? Contrary to my name ("Hana" means flower in Japanese) I have a history of killing plants. Well, most of them. Let's see how this one goes!

In Brief(s)

(s) because I am in sleep mode and therefore wearing undies as pajama bottoms.

--Tomato plants all have flowers. The next step is for the flowers to become fruits
--Pole beans are growing strong, but the Insuk's Wang Kongs are growing stronger
--The small squash plants keep getting affected by some sort of mold after it rains
--Adapazarı balkabağı plants are obscenely huge. Now I know why people plant pumpkins on hills five feet in diameter
--Something evil nibbled on my prettiest marigold, ruffling the edges of the petals
--I need to dig another plot for a new set of tomatoes (woo-hoo?)
--Rain rain rain rain rain.

Please, God, keep the temperatures at a decent level for at least another month or two. That would be oh so wonderful.

looks like you are having success and some failures too. Best of luck with your squash and marigolds. I do hope the temperature stays low for a while but that's just hoping.

Amen - Keep the heat away. This time of year is so nice.

I've heard that spraying a milk solution (1:9 water) can help take care of mold or mildew on squash.

Hi Hanna,
I think we both share a certain humour and honesty about this crazy endeavour! - like you homour - like your blog - and check out my tomatoes if you want to feel better!

Thought I would introduce myself.

We are now officially gardening on Mars! I think this is going to be one long, dry, hot Summer. I am curious as to how your tomatoes turned out?

By the way - You have been tagged. Please visit my blog if you would like to play along ;)

I hear you're kind of slut that has sex on the first date and only dates guys based on the car they drive. That sucks.

Sounds like somebody has a crappy car . . .
