What will you give me for my fresh vegetables and flowers?

I got my "Ballerina" roses in the mail today. I planted them right away. So now I've got 7 rambling rose bushes. It will take awhile before they look like anything more then branches. My whole garden is planted with small plants. We planted 25 lavender plants yesterday. They are tiny little things. Most of my plants are small. I saved money that way. But I can just imagine what it will look like in a few years. Right now the dandelions are the biggest plants! I also bought 6 heirloom tomatoes, 2 egg plants and 3 peppers to replace what was lost when we had that last frost. I moved some cabbages from my sack garden to make room for the tomatoes. I also planted 4 poppy plants. They are yellow, orange, white and red. I placed them near the pond. Poppies don't like to be moved. I hope they feel good in their new place. I'm nearly finished with the planting. I'm going to need to move forward with maintenance. Like pulling out those weeds! That's not nearly as much fun!
