A new family is coming to town, well on PBS anyway. They live in Slum House circa 1860 London. It starts tomorrow, May 2nd at 8 Eastern/7 Central. I am kind of excited. I have no idea how long it will last, but I'm giving you a 'heads up' anyway. I hope you'll join me! The trailers look very interesting.
Tiny Tim is a cripple of sorts, it was showing such promise, but I am beginning to think it was an ill-fated venture. I gave it everything I could to stop the progress of the death of the leaves. Something is wrong. I used the Dawn solution originally, then I went to mite/etc killer, and have progressed to mold/etc killer - all natural, of course. I see the beginnings of flower buds, although I believe it is wasted energy on the part of the plant. Doing some amputation on it now, but think it's hopeless.
The squash, however, is outgrowing the planter and will have to be moved soon and I hope it will survive that.
The mint is doing very well, too, and the lavender is soldiering on.
Happy May Day to you all! Here, it looks like summer is in full swing, all the trees are fully dressed in their various shades of green.
