(My dad's favorite kind of post!!)
The weather has been great, and with school on hold I have been able to spend some time in the garden. There is nothing better than taking a patch of freshly-tilled soil and creating and structuring the "perfect" garden (for the current year, at least). This is my favorite part of gardening!
|garden entrance: come on in!|
|perennials (and some annuals) along the garage wall...|
I need to mulch all of it once I'm done planting.
(see the peas creeping up on the very left)
|I got a peony blossom this year!!!|
|My newly created "hot and cold" bed|
(I put cabbage right next to the eggplant,
peppers, and basil. Whatever.)
|Gemma heard that I wanted to plant eggplant, so she helped.|
I'll hate to tell her that she planted it in the aisle way. :o(
Next, James. He spent an hour out with me, adding compost to all my newly-planted annual flowers and some veggies. Then he watered them all!! He is a hard worker, and always wants to be helpful. I think he deserves a trip to Panda Express for some Orange Chicken.
|One bed left to plant. I think I'll do all seeds in this one.|
Zinnia, beets, wax beans, lettuce, carrots, green onions.
|Some transplanted fall aster and daisy, and my Sweet|
William that came back from last year and is flowering
this year. Will plant scarlet runner beans on the fence.
|Some of my tomatoes. I think I have about|
20 in the garden, and the rest will have to go
in the "auxiliary garden" near the barn.
