For 2020, I decided to add more vegetables to the garden, containers to my screen porch and fix an ongoing drainage problem.
See all the sand on the porch? I am adding a walkway and a wall to hopefully capture most of it. I have planted the pots with vegetable seeds – lettuce, spinach and root vegetables.
The walkway under construction, landscape fabric filled with drainage gravel will go under the area where most of the water flows.
A concrete mermaid will be added along with crushed shell and stone in front of the pots to help with drainage. Here is the mermaid, I call her me-maid as I have grey hair and brown eyes, considering adding glasses. And fixing her arm, oops
Replanted pots on the screen porch: A Fireball Neoregelia Bromeliad, Flapjack Kalanchoe and Boston Fern. All transplanted from the garden.
Another pot. The dark Bromeliad is Luca Neoregelia, the green one is Super Fireball, a bit of Asian Sword Fern and Wandering Jew (Transcandentia zebrina) More garden transplants.
Papaya seedlings grown from the fruit of my tree. Papaya trees grow fast and don’t last long so you need back up trees for continous Papayas.
That’s my New Year’s SOS, join the Saturday fun at http://www.thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com.
Happy New Year and Happy Gardening.
