Saturday Container Gardening

My lettuce is doing so well, I'm excited to know I will have home grown salad. Tomato plants are liking their containers, and will be mildly scented by basil in the same pot. My Spanish Lavender is as happy as a plant can be, it's just wild, huge and gorgeous. My mini-roses are a challenge. The yellow one seems half dead, the other half is sprouting buds. The red one is just, well, there. I'm unsure what to do next.

After a six day work week, I have a full weekend of nothing -- well, not nothing, but nothing but leisure activities ahead. Okay, so I will do laundry and clean my house, but I will not be answering phones at work. I will putter in my container garden, take a hike, be outside. I love a good weekend!

And over at Blanton's & Ashton's there's a post about Karl Rove's probable indictment next week. One can always hope.

Roses - they either take off like a house a-blazing; or shrivel up like the wicked witch of the west. Minis are especially picky. Well - my advice is don't over water them, make sure you didn't transplant them too deep, and get a hold of some rose food. After that - it's up to mother nature to decide. Good Luck!

Thanks for the tip TFLS. I think I did overwater them, though. With the one plant, half of it is thriving and the other have is just shriveling up like, well, you got it.

But I almost have a salad with my lettuces~!
