Special K planted these interesting flowers last year. They are called "Devil's Flower".
More garden photos this week. These are my "volunteer" potatoes. They came up from the compost trenches I've been digging this year.
This is the first time I've been able to successfully sprout carrots. As long as our soil isn't too compacted, I believe we may actually get carrots this year.
Wingnut Jr. and an accomplice thought it would be hilarious to blow fruit smoothie all over my porch. I sent my little guys out with a bucket of soapy water and scrub brushes to clean it up. Unfortunately, wild blueberry smoothie stains porous rock and in the end I used baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to successfully clean up the mess. Lil' Lamb decided he needed to do some more "cleaning up".
He was determined to get his back clean.
After scrubbing the porch clean, I could not ignore the filthy front doors. Especially since there had been a big blog of barbecue sauce on them for more than a week. Charlotte at Waltzing Matilda has been trying to decide on a color to repaint her front doors. I would love to paint our doors a dark color--red or black possibly.
Scrubbing the doors made this desire even stronger. As you can see, the hardware was recently replaced by the previous owners and they did not find the time to repaint the doors afterward. Yep, I'd really like to paint our front doors--maybe a dark red rust?
