If you're in need of a little techie help with your indoor gardening, here's something to consider! I am a routine oriented person and seem to live my life via reminders on my calendar. Not to mention my memory is crap, so I have to write things down. I went looking for an easy way to get reminded to water various houseplants, and found a super easy to use app for just that! (No affiliation-just a happy user.) Here is what the app looks like on the App Store. It's called WaterMe - Plant Watering Reminders, and it's free. The interface is super easy to use, clean and simple. Once you have the app installed, touch the + sign to add each plant as a separate item in your list. You can add photos of your own plants (which I love, so I know exactly which plant each entry is for) give it a name, and determine how many days between reminders you want for the plant. Touch "Done" when you're finished entering information, and the app adds the item to your list. Here is what the list of plants looks like after you've made your entries. Touch the "i" icon if you want to edit an entry. In addition to the plant name, I've added the kind of light the plant likes, as well as some reminders for plant care. Some plants like to have evenly moist soil, while others like to dry out a bit (or a lot!) before their next watering, or respond better to a certain fertilizer schedule. Adding these kinds of care reminders will help me with each plant's preferred kind of care. Perhaps this kind of reminder system will be helpful for you as well? In this house, a reminded plant owner makes for happy plants! *grin* Continue reading

It was such a beautiful evening, I just had to snap some photos around the place. Thought I'd share! These lovely Shasta Daisies are over 3' tall at the corner of the chicken coop. I love them, and have Shasta Daisies planted in several places around the property. You can see a few Rose Campion peeking out from the Daisies. I love how they mix and mingle in this location. I think the flowers around the coop are so pretty this year. I look forward to how they fill in and grow even larger next summer! These petunias are blooming like mad, planted in Gramma's old wheelbarrow. Love! Cherry Brandy Rudbeckia, isn't she a beauty!? This pretty orange flowered plant (don't recall what it's called...) is a perennial I put in last year. Amazing red orange snap dragons, white petunias, and purple pansies grow in this basket. These are Becky Daisies I received last year from a local gardening friend. They're only about 15" tall, unlike the super tall Daisies on the other corner of the coop. Firey red and yellow coreopsis. Another super tall plant, this Summer Sun Heliopsis has amazing bright yellow flowers loaded with petals. I have Heliopsis planted in several areas around the place. I love them! The coop, still decorated for July celebrations. The heat of summer is drying up the grass where it's not watered. Having drip lines that allow easy watering around the coop has been a huge time saver this summer! I hope you enjoyed this little tour of the flowers planted here and there around the coop. There are lots of others, including personal favorites like Black-eyed Susan, more Rose Campion, Salvia, Zinnia, and even decorative grasses (and lots of weeds, too!) Continue reading
