Hello Spring Break! I really love you!
It was a beautiful, sunny, day in the Pacific Northwest and I spent my afternoon in the garden. My hubby and I went to Flower World a few days ago and I had some new plants waiting for me.
We bought 2 new blueberry bushes. (This time, I promise that I will remember to water them MORE than the other plants in the yard because they really need lots of water. Lesson learned.)
We bought 2 Raspberry Shortcakes by Monrovia. I can’t wait to to see how this dwarf raspberry does in a pot on my deck. Yes, I have visions of sitting of sitting in my comfy chair, and reaching over to grab myself a snack.
My youngest was a pretty good little helper. We added chicken manure to the garden and she helped turn the garden and rake it out.
I pulled a ten year old ivy plant out of the pot, on my deck, and replaced it with my little Shortcake. I will FOREVER be pulling ivy out of that, I’m afraid.
I planted lettuce and parsley starts, and I also planted a few seeds. I planted carrots, beans, and two varieties of zucchini. I will add basil and tomatoes in May, and I will plant more lettuce and beans in two weeks. I also have potatoes that will be grown in bags this year. I wanted to try something new, so I’ll let you know how the potato bags do.
The strawberry plants got a little TLC today too, with fresh soil.
At the end of the day, I propped my feet up on 5 bags of dirt, and poured myself a glass of Grape Crush.
Cheers, to a job well done!
