I'm enjoying your plant pictures Dallas. The yard has weeds now since the rain .. So I have to go and weed eat soon. I have many grape vines and pomegranates and some apple trees and blackberries. I'll have to get some pictures to post here.

I've been growing lemon thyme, Greek oregano, dill, and rosemary for weeks, but I got some pots on Freecycle, so I bought some Italian parsley, chives, French lavender, and some boxwood basil today (below):

 

 

Also bought a jubilee tomato plant:

 

And bought another Opuntia vestita again, since I lost mine last year:

 

And an Opuntia microdasys (bunny ears cactus). The one I got is yellow, but I prefer the white:

 

And last week I bought a Mammillaria pilcayensis:

 

 

And a green wheel sempervivium:

 

And some Coral Reef Chinese sedum:

Sandi, when I was a kid I used to grow carrots from the tops of grocery carrots.  I also still grow potatoes from sprouted potato eyes.  Some of those suggestions are fun for kids, but not so great for gardening - if you don't have a lot of room, it's better to grow named varieties of tomatoes.  The exception is heirloom varieties, which do grow true from saved seeds.  I didn't know about the lentils, and I LOVE lentils - wonder if they are worth the garden space?

Dallas very cool!  We have some of those or similar in my neighborhood.  They have a Dr. Suessian look.  Weeping mulberries are sort of similar. I like them because they make edible fruit.   How about a Hydnora africana?

Yes, Dallas, dejected, and like a monster will peek out any minute now and the arms will turn into octopus with suckers.

I like this plant. It looks so wonderfully dejected.

Oh, in many ways I'm an effin boyscout, I just don't want to have that kind of reputation. Not sure I could outlive the shame. I should have planted wolfsbane or deadly nightshade instead. I've seen some of those flowers you posted before, but never that vegetable sheep. That's interesting. Truely otherworldly. Martianesque.

Some not-daisy-like flowers.  But I think you are more wholesome than you let on.

Comment by A Former Member on March 26, 2012 at 8:15am
Thanks Joan. That's the one. I'm on my smartphone, and it's not as easy to use for me. I'm zone 8. These were a bit of an impulse buy for me. On second thought, daisy-like flowers are a bit wholesome for my dispositio, but we'll see how they do.
