The Driveway: 4/24/16

We had breaks in the rain yesterday, so I headed out with my camera.  I'll start with the driveway this time.

I scored three half barrels on our neighborhood Facebook gardening page.
For free.
Woot woot.
We filled them with a combo of free fill dirt from a neighbor, and compost that we already had.
When I go to plant them, I'll mix in potting soil on top.
I'm thinkin' all veggies, but we'll see.
I plopped them down in between the Arborvitae, where the roots are so dense, it's impossible to plant in the ground.

The two pots of lettuce have grown quite a bit, but it's still not big enough for a meal.

The snap peas are comin' along, too.

The chives are up and ready to bloom.

The raspberry also has buds.

The runner beans, that I started too early, are pokin' along, but getting new growth.

I stuck in some sunflowers that my mom started from seed.

The Purple Sage has a ton of new growth, and I've got Cosmo babies comin' up.

I bought a Kosmic Kale.
Stupid name, but I think it'll be pretty, and yummy.
I first saw it at Garden Fever, where they only had big pots of it.  I didn't wanna spend what they were asking, so I inquired about 4 inchers.  The gal told me the grower is only doing the big pots.
Well, imagine my surprise when I found it in a 4" at Portland Nursery, from the same grower.
I really like Garden Fever as a nursery, but their customer service could use some work.
They're so unfriendly, that I'm on the cusp of not going back.

And in non-edible news, a pot from last year with Hebe 'Pinocchio' and Salvia 'Fancy Dancer.'

And that's it for the driveway this week.


  1. I bet in another month, all of your pots will be brimming with color!

  2. Potholes in your driveway are primarily formed during the winter months. Water from melting snow penetrates the surface of the asphalt, where it then freezes and expands, creating small cracks in your driveway which eventually grow into pot holes.
