One Plant at a Time

r_gap_plant

Plant by plant, our garden keeps growing. R* and I picked out this hanging basket at Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket on Saturday. Here’s R* walking it home.

We’d planned to hang it on an pipe that punches through the corner of our garden space, but quickly learned it is too windy and hot there. We hung it on the poll a few hours on Saturday and it wilted. A quick spray with the neighbor’s hose (shhh!) and it was good as new again, but we’re keeping it out of the direct sun for a while. This is the only mega-flowery plan we have. We need the color and don’t want to kill it!

    Have a hanging basket (or many) hanging on our front porch and the real pain is–you have to water them like every single day! When it’s been rainy, it’s been great–I think, whew, don’t have to water all my flowers and the newly seeded grass today :) Good luck keeping it alive and be sure to pick off the dead flowers–makes it bloom, more, better, faster, etc….
