It went from THIS to . . . .
I have this annual dilemma, what to do after the iris bloom? I never cut them back, I hear it's better for future growth. I've heard of braiding them, but I don't think I'll do that. They are in the back of the garden but still at a focal point, with the bird bath in front of them.
Any suggestions? What do you do with your iris?
The red hot poker plant is in full gear, a transplant from the mama plant. I've had two that bloomed already with their orange and yellow spikes, but this one has more coming up by far.
The Swiss chard is adding color to the little side garden. The stems are much more colorful than my camera will show you. Today the big garden gets plants! Hip, Hip, Hurrah!
Spinach and lettuce doing well, along side the collards.
Tomatoes across from radish and lettuce.
We couldn't eat as many radishes as I planted so some are getting big.
Did you know they get THORNS when they get big?
I do now.
I better get on the gloves, pluck these guys out and dehydrate them for use in soups or stews.
