I am so glad that all the snow and the rain, and the crappy non-gardening weather is over (at least for now!!)
I was FINALLY able to start putting in gardens.
In the front, by the door there is nothing to show you because I only planted seeds for poppies. But it's done.
The front/corner/south side garden I moved a ton of tulips to put in my north shrub garden and replanted with strawberry plants. I put in six blueberry plants in a corner where there was an empty spot, and I cleaned up around my asiatic lilies, which are starting to pop out the foliage. I also planted from seed some four o'clocks, which will pop out in front of my lilies in the empty spot. Here's a picture. And the little yellow flowers are marigolds. I have always heard that they attract the beneficial insects and repel the undesireables, so I try to plant them around when I can.
I also tilled and prepared the vegetable garden. Then planted the following rows.
The rows go 18' wide and I have 40' to make my rows in.
PEAS (OKRA WILL GO HERE LATER)
PATCHWORK OF LETTUCE/SPINACH/CABBAGE
PATCHWORK OF ONIONS
There's not really much to see in the garden yet, but I will take pictures later to show you as things start taking off.
Have a great weekend and happy gardening until next week!
