Weekend Gardening

This weekend in the OKC area, it looks to be cloudy and rainy.  It's great weather to get your flower and other plants into the soil or pots.

It's also a great time to fertilize or sow seeds.

I hope to get the green beans and cucumber seeds in.

Yesterday, Jacob helped me get more  fences into our new garden plot.  Growing pole beans, cucumbers and tomatos on fences is a great way to keep them up off the soil and makes for easy picking.

Now is the time to prune any flower bushes that have finished flowering.  Alway prune AFTER flowering.

Plant your caladium and elephant ear bulbs now.

Potatoes looking good after the  frost got them.
