Last spring I told you that I purchase some Purple Hyacinth Bean Flowering Vine Seeds and was planting them around the mailbox. Well…here’s how they look now.
I had hoped they would cover the mailbox but haven’t and I don’t think they will. I am happy with how they are though. I have been faithfully carrying water to them but they just didn’t seem to grow quite as big. I really need to get better at fertilizing my plants. It seems about this time of year everything needs a boost. If I would fertilize more I am sure I could get past that hump.
I planted some seeds around the flag pole too. It’s my daughter Kalissa playing Vanna White!
I can’t believe how high they have climbed. Next year I am going to add another plant or two here to make it fuller….and hopefully God will add a little more natural rain. I just love these plants!! I love even more that I can save the seed pods and start them over next year. I love frugal gardening!!
Anyone have other frugal gardening tips? I would love to hear them!!
