2 - four packs of lemon cucumbers. This is where I always get my lemon cucumbers. I tried growing my own, but they always die.
2 - bell peppers, a California Wonder and a Golden Wonder. It's cold for them right now, but it is supposed to warm up considerably in a few days. Peppers love heat.
1 - four pack of basil
Lots of flowers - "Million Bells" or calibrachoa, verbena, bacopa (sutera cordata), African daisy, wave petunias (I am not a petunia fan, but these do look nice in hanging baskets, and I just mentioned, I bought three!)
...and a dracaena. I liked it's looks!
All these gems came to under $20.00. I love those Future Farmers!
It's cold and wet, but I planted anyway. The plants were used to a cozy warm greenhouse, so they must be very shocked to be in my yard now. I was in Ashland this morning, and there was snow on the foothills! Snow! We do need the water, but snow in nearly mid-May? I want spring back, and I think we are going to jump right into summer.

The front looks better already since we tore out the junipers.
And I'll lose that icky mildewed, cat hair filled drapery when the new windows go in! I have to get the painter back to repair those damaged areas where water formed bubbles under the window. Then I can plant this area. At first I planned iris, but now I am thinking lavender. I have plans for a handrail in front of the step. Isn't my front door pretty? I love it! All the greenery in the photo are wild violets. They are cute and pretty, but grow just like weeds.
