Mrs Dawg's Yard
#1
Okie has his yard pics. I love to follow along as his yard grows throughout the year. So, since my wife works so hard in our yard, I figured I would start a thread to showcase her efforts from here forward.

The back yard.

My wife already has some maters, cucumbers, and yellow squash planted. Not in the pics. They are next to the fence in a lower part of the yard where they shouldn't dry out quite as bad.

mdawg4x4,

All I can say is, wow. Mrs. Dawg's has a talent for gardening. Your home and garden are second to none that I have seen. Keep up the good work and do keep sharing pictures as things change in the yard.

We have had 10 straight days of rain so things are kind of slow in the garden right now. We are also starting this week with the busy season for the band so it will slow down even more.

Thanks Okie. I will relay what you said.
We had heavy wind and rain today. There was a wall cloud from as far South to as far North as you could see that blew in from the West. I just knew there would be some tornadoes in the area, but only had sideways rain for about 15min before it settled down.

mdawg4x4,

I am totally excited about your gardening. It is so nice to see the younger people get involved in gardening. I was in my late 50's before I got bitten by the bug. What color are your Crepe Myrtles? I love them, but unfortunately around here many people commit what is known as 'Crepe murder.' That is, they whack them every year or so to keep them from getting too tall.

That is a shame because when they mature the bark is very attractive if they are left to grow to their natural height. You are doing great with yours.

You have a much larger yard than I do which is great because you can have more plants. Of course on the downside you will have to work a lot harder to keep it up. I can't remember, do you have landscaping in the front too?

The Crepe Myrtles are pink. We thought we were getting the deeper purple color, but the sprouted pink. Oh well. We want them to get big enough to add shade to the picnic table area as well as the back of the house you see behind them. This area get full sun in the summer afternoon. Really heats up that end of the house. The summer sun was the biggest reason we added the sun room.

We are slowly adding to it. We have one end of the house planted with Junipers (my favorites cause I'm originally from CA). Have the grass killed off. Wife wants to spray one more time before covering with mulch. Then she will accent with flowers. The opposite end of then house will be next.
Still have to have plenty of grass for the dogs to run. The kids are getting too big to play in the yard.

They recommend to leave the bed sitting for a year after you try to kill the grass if it is Bermuda. I was not able to tell if that is Bermuda grass for certain. That stuff is hard to kill out and you will have to make two or more applications of grass killer. It is much easier to deal with if it is a bare bed so you do not have to try to work around the plants you put into the bed.

We just planted a bed at the park I do a stroll patrol in. The bed had been sitting dormant for a year and they had made 3 applications of poison to it. There were still a few sprigs of Bermuda here and there. Good luck.

Centipede!!! Runs everywhere! Wife is always pulling sprigs and runners! But very drought resistant and comfy under the bare feet.

The Hibiscus is beautiful as is the Crepe Myrtle. My Crepe Myrtle does not even have any buds on it yet. You must be about 3 or 4 weeks ahead of my yard.

Thank you for sharing the pictures with us as I always love to see beautiful flowers.
