I know that I recently wrote a post about how I wanted a rose or clematis vine for the roof, but I changed I my mind when I saw this mandevilla in the garden center. She likes it hot so her name will be Marilyn and so far she has been habitating well on roof! Expect a know thy plant post in the future, so you too can grow a heat loving beauty vine.

BUT I am still dreaming of a few things , of the approaching time when my tomatoes will look like this

June 16, 2010 Comments Off on Bonnaroo Gardens….
So on my arrival to Bonnaroo, I was excited to find out that Bonnaroo Gardens! They even had their own victory garden. They also teamed up with Gardeners Supply Company to put on workshops on gardening and to get people to support the community gardens act, which would use USDA funds to support community gardens. They even handed out postcards to people who could sign them and Ben and Jerry’s then offered to trade them for free bonnaroo flavored ice cream and send them to washington. I got to have some great conversations about gardening and about our society. Also keep an eye over on J.E.S for more non gardening related bonnaroo photos.

Here’s my super fantastic tip for traveling when you have a container garden. Either pay someone to water your garden (so they are motivated to do it AND follow directions) or entrust to a fellow gardener ho know how frustrating it is to come back from vacation and have your plants looking like this:
OK so I know this one wasn’t in a pot BUT still. Not going to lie, I almost had a tantrum including stomping…3 year old style.
