Spring has finally started
in our neck of the woods.
I've gone from starting seeds inside
to re-potting and moving them to
the potting shed.
I set up my Christmas light cord
with a dusk to dawn setting
and put two heat lamps out there in case
of heavy frost.
It always feels good to get them out of the house,
and it is amamzing how much they grow
between now and May 15th when I
start planting the garden.
I also started preparing my garden beds.
Last year I planted three tires with cucumbers.
This year I'm planting six :)
I've started working some of the
earth in some of my beds and went ahead
and planted three packs of 100 onions bulbs each.
These beds that are covered in leaves . . .
I'm going to try the
"Strout's No Work Garden Method" here.
We have this area behind the potting shed
that is adjacent to a graveled area where we park
our trucks and trailers.
I wanted to build some kind of a boarder
to divide these areas and soften the look.
So I bought some little trees and shrubs
and some trellis's and created this corner.
In time they will grow . . .
behind the trellis I planted two red twig
dogwood shrubs that will grow six feet tall
and six feet wide.
Some day it will be lovely . . .
give it a few years :)
While weeding out the garden beds
I came across this . . .
I think it is a baby pine tree.
So, I put it in a pot and I'm going
to nurture it and see what happens.
Walking around the yard I spied a
few pleasant signs of Spring.
This is Steve's Dad's old wheel barrow.
I found this old log on the wood pile
It was rotting in the center
so I dropped in a couple Hen's & Chicks.
On the south side of the house we have
tulips starting to bloom :)
And my baby Forsythia is blooming:)
Don't you just love Spring!
New life in the garden
gives me a new sense of energy:)
