This is too funny! Thanks to you ladies I feel much better about my garden. But really I do have flower beds, but only the good looking weeds are allowed to grow in em. A weed can be trimmed around it in a way they actually look good. I had a walk way that was lined with ferns, I loved that spot so much I trimed it really nice, put down some plant food and they all died on me.
That anoying vine that grows down here, the one that kills every thing. I built a tressel for it, now we're both happy. And some people say they like it but can't believe it's a weed.
There's a place where I clean my birds cage. I just put some stones around it and now have a spot where flowers grow year round. Some are really big to, about 6ft.
I agree tho if you look, you can find some great looking weeds. Ah whats in a name anyway.

Thank you again
Chkn

I've turned my thinking around. I now like weeds. I do much better with them. Nature choses the spot and plants them. They grow anyway no matter what I do. Some even have flowers! As you can see from my picture, it's not that I don't try with hanging plants. I'd love to have a garden but I can't afford the gardener.
I never go wrong with merrigolds tho.

weeds are just plants that are growing where we don't want them

i have 2 flower beds that i put wildflower seeds in and just let them be
so to some there are weeds in them--to me i don't have to do anything but look at flowers

but i did inherit a green thumb

Pink Mandevilla!
My favorite, had this big hole in the bottom of my pine tree out front from termites I killed so I filled it with potting soil and shoved it in there, cool.

No flowers here, but Veggies and herbs, about 60 pepper plants, 30 tomato, beans, red beets, onions, egg plants, cabbage, and some various mellons. But it does take time.

the seed poppies I could send either way as seed or plant and are less fussy but less showey too.. more like a wildflower..no making opium from the sap though!!! unless you're willing to share the recipe with me that is!



Hi Pam-Zee,

I don't know what kind he was growing and all I remember is that they were red, had a big pod under where the flower was, and when it was green you cut it to get the white opium sap, and when it was dried you shook the seeds out of the top to put on bread and stuff. I don't think he actualy tended them as flowers but kind of let them grow alone in a long patch at the back of the plot. So I guess they were perennials? FugifIknow. If there are seeds that can be had and planted and don't need any care that would be cool, but a cutting or a transplant is much beyond me and would not be worth your time to send.

Since the hurricanes I got more unfamiliar crap growing here than I can identify, My grass got overcome by millions of little green tree looking weeds from someplace, I'm fixin to go and RoundUp the whole place.


After the tornado in 99 I had corn and cabbage growing in the front yard of where my house once was..and of course the demolition crew also found a 2x8x10 buried in my lawn, there was only about 6" of it sticking out of the ground, they grabbed it with their backhoe and pulled it out..they enjoyed pulling and digging it up to see how far down it was, and were amazed when they got it out..but corn grew there for a long time in different areas..I sold the lot so nothing was being rebuilt immediately but when I would drive past there was a new stalk growing somewhere else

hi eye! you're grandfather probably was growing the perennial version the oriental poppies...there's some connection there with the kaiser war or one of the ww's and poppies isn't there??? it's ring a bell to me and I shouldknow this. i'd be happy to send you whichever you want..i got both but the oriental needs to be a rooted transplant and will be very fussy getting it started...the seed poppies I could send either way as seed or plant and are less fussy but less showey too.. more like a wildflower..no making opium from the sap though!!! unless you're willing to share the recipe with me that is!
