Zowie!--those are gorgeousAlso, I've been going through some of your posts on the chef's table page. You make some really great looking salads, etc. I loved the post on the avoiding wheat update. I've had to give that up as well and 5 months later, I can't believe how much better I feel. Honestly, what the heck have they done to it that sooooo many people are having so many problems????? I switched to all organics hoping that would solve my issues, but it ended up being the wheat, organic or not. Like you, I DO miss my pizzas and breads and oh, those incredibly soft and poofy dinner rolls slathered with a ton of butter. But, I don't miss the nights spent writhing in agony. Loved your cat/dog analogy. I have yet to find anything gluten free that is GOOD.....so I'd just rather "not".
They dinked with bread wheat to the point it's not fit for consumption - just easy to grow and long storage. I really like my corn chips, my rice crackers, my polenta, etc. I refuse to buy 'gluten free (fill in the blank) cookies, snacks, etc. I'll stick with my cat, thank you. Glad you are feeling better! That's what counts.
When I do fertilize I do see great results. I don't understand why I can't get into a regular routine though so I go weeks without fertilizing. Your flowers look marvelous.
Hi Larry. I'm like you, I like the results, don't like crawling around under tomatoes, vines, etc to scratch it into the soil. Still, I made myself do it this year 1st of every month. It's hard to argue with the results....
amazing looking plants. What did you fertilize with?
I used GardenTone (organic) on the cukes. The flowers just helped themselves to it. LOL
Thanks for visiting, I'm off for a snoop round your blog so I hope you don't mind x
Julee, Hi! Welcome. Just found your blog today and had a bit of snoop over there too. Enjoy your wander.... :-D
P.S. If you want to meander over to the my sidebar blogs, let me know, I'll wing you out an email invite to any you'd like.
What fabulous colour! I bet you'll be fertilising them again next year!
Well, actually, they really block my view from the sunroom! *heh* Unless I grow cukes there again next year, I don't think I'll be fertilizing them again. I usually only fertilize veg regularly and flowers only when they are initially planted. I want plants that are pretty drought tolerant and self-sufficient. Still, they ARE quite gorgeous. *sigh*
Thank you for visiting. I appreciate your notes, comments and questions and will try to reply to each one! :-)
