Deck Gardening 2016

This year I grew potatoes in a pot on my deck; as you will see from these pictures it is very easy to grow potatoes in a pot and big ones!  My tomatoes this year are large, tasty, and abundant!  Even my peppers are abundant and large.  I am still waiting for my sweet mini peppers but the plants are finally at a large height.  My regular green peppers are still producing peppers!  Enjoy these pictures!

 

 

I want to call attention to all Police Officers and other individuals, especially in Falmouth, who automatically assume that all vehicles are automatic and have automatic windows that roll down at a touch of a button. DO NOT ASSUME that a car has the capability of pushing a button to roll down a window. I drive […]

It is surprising how a few days of heat and a bit of rain will make your garden flourish!  I have been eating cucumbers on a daily basis and one of my green peppers is almost ready to pick.  The second planting of lettuce is coming up nicely and I have tomatoes galore growing.  My flowers are all in bloom and my patio deck gardenia is still providing me with one beautiful flower at a time.

I have added a new indoor plant to my collection.  I don’t know the name of this plant but it looks like rope from a distance and is very long.  It is some type of cactus and is unusual.  I have added some pictures of this new plant.

Enjoy these pictures!

I want to call attention to all Police Officers and other individuals, especially in Falmouth, who automatically assume that all vehicles are automatic and have automatic windows that roll down at a touch of a button.  DO NOT ASSUME that a car has the capability of pushing a button to roll down a window.  I drive a standard vehicle and twice now in the last month I have had two police officers assume that I could roll down my passenger window to talk to them.  Let it be known, that in order for me to roll down the passenger window, I have to shut my car off so that I can take off my seat belt so that I can lean over so that I can manually roll down my window so that you can talk to me, instead of you walking over to the driver’s side of the vehicle to talk to me.  When I motion you to come over to my side it is for a valid reason.  Please take notes!!!

My vehicle may not look like your typical manual vehicle and you may not think that a female can drive a manual vehicle but both are true.

So next time I motion to you to come to the driver’s side window, it is for a valid reason!  Don’t be so rude to me and take a few steps, and don’t be so lazy, over to the correct side of the vehicle for talking to the driver.  Because what I have to go through just to open that passenger window is also painful for me as a person who has disabilities!

It has been a good month now since I have been trying to find an answer to why I cannot upload pictures and insert them into my blog.  I have tried all the answers listed such as are you using the right internet connection, to the so-called “forums”.  I am really disappointed with Word Press for not offering an email address at the very least where I can explain what is not working and perhaps be given substantial answers; not a forum, which by the way I did post in the forum and still have no responses, nor well maybe you are using something wrong.  I have been a member of Word Press for a number of years now and this is the first time that I have not been able to upload my pictures to my garden blog.  Anyone who works or manages Word Press, I would really appreciate hearing from you soon.  Otherwise, I guess I might be switching to “WIX”.

 

 

I am disappointed with Word Press because they have not responded to my concerns regarding uploading my pictures to my blog.  I had taken pictures on July 10, 2016 and to date I still cannot upload these pictures in the blog that I had started.  Needless to say, I am trying again on another computer to see if it works on this computer; so new pictures taken today for you to enjoy!

Unfortunately, it is also not working on this computer so that tells me that it is Word Press who is having a problem. I would think that they would let us know if there is a problem!

 

 

 

 

 

Fresh Garden Veggies!

Well, I have a draft of a posting that I cannot get my pictures attached ready to go but I have not heard back from Word Press as to what the problem is.  In the meantime, I wanted to let you know that I have green beans growing on my plants and this morning I am making potato salad with fresh green onions, cucumbers, and my first full size green pepper all from my deck garden!

Wish I could share all the pictures I have taken a few days ago but until Word Press corrects the problem I am sorry that there are no pictures with this blog.

 

 

There have been some significant changes since the last time I posted pictures of my deck gardens.  I have re-planted new lettuce seeds in one bed because the lettuce was done; however, while that grows, I have another bed of lettuce to use!  My cucumber plants are huge and are sporting tiny cucumbers with many more to come because there are so many flowers; I have taken a picture of the tiny cucumbers.  My tomato plants now have tiny tomatoes on them; again I have taken a picture of the tomatoes.  In addition, my peppers also have tiny peppers and I have taken a picture of that.  My potato plants are growing and that is a good sign.  I thought that my peas had stopped producing peas but today I see that there are more flowers on the plants.  Great, more peas!

There are pictures of my two dogs on the deck; I could not resist!

There  is a picture of what may look like a small weed; that is a picture of one of my sweet mini-peppers that are growing.  Sweet mini-peppers are not easy to grow here because they require a lot of heat; but every year I grow them from seed and every year they produce the peppers that are so tasty!

My patio gardenia tree is doing great and produces one flower at a time at this point.  I took a picture of the one flower that is starting to wilt but I know there is another bud on the tree.  All my flowers are doing great and I tried to take some close up shots of some of the unusual flowers that I am growing.

The hummingbirds are constant visitors on my deck; they love to sit on my tomato cages and drink from the hummingbird feeders. Today a male and female yellow chickadees sat on my tomato cages.

Enjoy these pictures!
