So, today I decided to do some outdoor work. First off, we went to Home Depot to get some paint for the kitchen. That way, when the mood strikes me, I will have it! Then I headed to the garden department where I picked up some bird seed for my feeder and some red geraniums. I have found that for some reason, geraniums grow like crazy out here.
I found, though, that my roses weren't doing so well out front. Even though they are supposed to have full sun apparently they don't like El Cajon full sun at least in pots. My neighbor, Marie, (the tomato lady) told me that they were getting too much sun even though hers is out front in the sun and doing fine. I guess maybe it's because mine are in pots. So, I decided to moved them out back and plant them in part of my "gee, what am I going to do with this space" spot. They will have some sun but won't get the full brunt of the hot afternoon sun--and they will be in the ground not in pots.
The ground was like a brick so I had to wet it down good to dig and keep wetting it more as I went along. But I managed to get the job done.
