Today I spent part of the day working in the yard with oldest daughter..we worked on creating 2 raised beds to which we added cow compost and soil to. We'll be planting seeds for our garden into those soon. I'm going to try and plant by the moon phases according to the almanac that I picked up from the feed store this week.
I bought some nice big strawberry plants to add to our strawberry bed(a large 8 ft long raised bed strictly devoted to strawberries..yay!
I also picked up some broccoli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower plants at the feed store the other day as well.
Then I also dumped a container of earth worms into the soon to be herb kitchen garden by the back patio.
We ripped out the old deck ,and some of the wood from the deck to create a raised bed garden area in the spot where the deck used to be.It wound up making 4 mini raised bed areas with a small mulched and round stone path through the middle of it directly off of the patio. We left the deck railing up to be able to set pots of small plants on the railing or to eventually set window boxes on.
I'll use that area for herbs like basil,oregano,lemon thyme and so forth..and may add a bit of cheer with a few marigolds here and there..and maybe even a garden gnome tucked in there somewhere..ha.
Well..that all the news here today...
May you all have a lovely weekend!
Thank you for joining me in "blogland"
