“April Showers bring May Flowers”.

We have not had the normal amount of rain so far this year since it seems storms are just blowing past including today. I am not sure of May flowers but I suppose the Day lilies might start blooming. Right now the Irises are in bloom. I was looking at pictures of Irises and may start collecting other types. Right now I mostly have the regular old fashion purple variety. They do very well in Kansas and look great in groups.

I still have to complete the set up the the irrigation in the vegetable garden. I have rows that hand water each day and I want to be able to weed while watering.
So far the poatoes are doing well. I wans hoping to get the Benje potatoes so I could palnt them but they still have not arrived. The lettuce and other vegetables have sprouted and are growing. I a week or so they should be large enough to take a picture of.

Jim Kennard just worte an article on growing your garden vertical. I gardened vertical a lot of my vegetables. I would like to try to grow cucumbers vertical later.
