It’s Saturday morning and time for The Propagators garden meme featuring six items of interest from your garden. For more interesting sixes, follow this link SIXES
I think Tom Petty said ‘The waiting is the hardest part’. If there is one thing gardening teaches you it is patience. Our weather has cooled a bit and this slows everything down. Here are six things from my garden that I am waiting for:
The Dombeya, I had the buds in last weeks post, they are tormenting me by just getting bigger and staying green. This uber tropical small tree should be covered in pink hydrangea like flowers soon.
Green Beans, not quite big enough to eat:
Radishes, again not quite big enough to eat:
Tomatoes, every so slowly turning red:
Papayas refusing to turn yellow or doing so at the moment a hungry bird flys by. These must have yellow streaks before picking or they never get ripe.
Lastly, fancy Zinnias grown from seed (Macrenia), these are supposed to be an excellent cut flower – double and 3 inches across bronzy orange with scarlet tips. Waiting to see the flowers!
That’s six from my garden. Happy Gardening.
