The okra is growing like crazy in the new sunroom. Today I saw the back-sides of the leaves were covered with aphids. Washed a lot of them off. Applied neem oil. That didn't seem to much, at least not immediately. Tomorrow, insecticidal soap.
For former dining room will by my home office / family room. The former family room will become the dining room. It makes more sense, due to the flow from the kitchen. Also with the entrance to the sunroom. Forgot a before photo. I only have energy for about 30 min at a time. So after 2 months, ugly carpeting is gone, chandelier gone, walls repaired, sealed, and painted. Next is bamboo flooring and re-install, seal, paint the trim, and install ceiling fan/light. Then it's done. There will be room for a seed starting stand in addition to a place to work on computer.

The room is not about gardening, but it is where I'll write about gardening when not in the sunroom.
