If only I was as disciplined. Right now it is pounding rain and has been hailing pea-sized hail!

Hi Brenda,
I wish it was raining here! Its getting more and more like summer weather here now. Next week suppose to be in the 90's!

Yes, I do need to fertilize some plants! Great idea to remind us--thanks Cindee. All your plants look really good!

I wish I was getting some of that rain. It reached 70 today, but Sunday's supposed to be 50? I'm going to put in my raised veggie bed tomorrow after I get those trees we cut down out of the way. Should be... interesting???

That reminds me, I need to get some compost for that garden.

I try to fertilize on Tuesdays, but sometimes I forget.

Hi Meadowview Thymes,
I even fertilized the lawn today! Hopefully things do well from this treatment!

Hi Cinj,
We haven't got our veggie garden started yet. My DH has been to busy at work lately! Compost really does help!

Hi Aunt Debbi,
Anyday is a good to fertilize!(-:

You are truly disciplined with your weekly fertilizing Cindee! I always forget, lol. Your garden is going to be glorious with all this attention. :)

I'm not consistent. This has been fascinating following along. I want my bushes and trees to grow more this year so I'm going to help them along with a regular dose. My brother did it and the results were amazing. Your gardens have always been lush and pretty.

I'm afraid to fertilize with insuffcient watering - afraid they will burn.

We are on SEVERE watering restricitons. I can only water from midnight to 4am ONE night per week (Wednesdays).
The minimum fine is $188.

Anyone driving past my house at 2am on a Wednesday may see me watering in my jammies!!!

Hi perennialgardener,
Hopefully I will see a huge difference in the plants this year! I have never fertilized that much in the past. Basically once a month or less. So this will be fun!

Hi Flowergardengirl,
I have never done it this much either so it has been interesting to see what is happening each week. Can't wait to see the daylillies bloom!

Hi My Little Family,
Yikes that is pretty harsh there. We have a well so I guess we can water as long as we pay the bill. All you plants seem to do o.k. with that strict a schedule though. We wouldn't make it here. It would be a desert. Give the dogs a hug from me(-:
