It appears that the leaky water faucet at the corner of the plot has been repaired, so I'm trying to decide what I'll put there. I don't have room for the pumpkin I'd planned on, not sure I want it in that space right next to the faucet. Something to think about later.
I was watering my hanging baskets out back and thought I'd include a couple of current photos. In my April 2nd post I showed a photo of my newly planted lettuce basket. 6 weeks later it's doing fine after more rain than it needed initially. I've been making salads with it since I planted it.

In my May 8th post I showed my railing planters with flower and veggies mixed. Less than 2 weeks later they are looking filled in and I've been using the lettuce and spinach in salads.

I've got a couple of plants to either pot or get in the ground, once the tomatoes are planted I won't have any nursery trays scattered on the back deck and then it will be all about watering. We've had a stretch of warm weather to remind me that I might want even/odd days between watering the garden and here at home.
