I Am A Planting Machine

Here are the photos from Tuesday, with the snapdragon plot finished:

Yesterday I had an hour, so I got the gerberas planted, with a little dutch miller as filler:

And the tomatoes:

I need some fences for those guys so they grow up strong and happy.

And here are some random pictures. This is that pretty bell-flower plant I bought, which, after I brought it home, found out it's going to grow about three feet wide and five feet tall. Yeesh. I'm going to have to put it in the front yard I think.

And here's a weird/bad picture of the purple nemesia planted in the side plot next to the strawberries:

So that's just about everything! I have two plots left, but I'm out of plants, so I'll have to make a trip to the garden center this weekend. I suppose I also need some mulch, but that sounds like a "wait until my roommate gets home from traveling and make him lift the bags" kind of job.

It looks great and I love the bell flowers on that plant. What kind of plant is it?

wow, your garden looks gorgeous! i love the bell plant. You could plant it in a huge pot if you don't want it to get out of control! i just picked up some huge terracotta pots from ikea for 6.99...

nice work! and wow, what a difference from what you started with!
