Tanya's Garden

I talked to Tanya at 4:00 am this morning (1 pm her time). She had just come back from the market and transplanted tomatoes, peppers, and more flowers before it started to rain again. Zhovti Vody has been getting good rains all week. She said the ground was so soft in the garden she just stuck her hand down to make a hole for the transplant. Corn, beans, beets, peas are all about 10 cm (4") tall. The onions are about 30 cm tall.
Yuri cut the grass in the back yard and around the outside of the garden fence as it was about 1 meter tall. I said we needed to buy a cow.
The tulip pictures she posted on Facebook in early May. They are done now and she will be cutting the tops back and digging them up once it dries out enough.
She had to buy petunia bedding plants this year as she was not home to start them.

  2. The garden looks terrific! And I love the cat sitting in the tree. Just think, you'll soon be home and you'll be able to help Tanya with the digging and weeding and harvesting etc etc.... or have you been banned from that sort of activity while you heal?
    I really like all the tulips, such a colourful spring flower.

    1. Vovo is watching for birds in Lucia's garden which is across the street from us. I am not allowed in the garden ever. Words like elephant or tractor come to Tanya's lips if I go near it.
