I’m working hard on shaping up our garden. I shared with you what my garden was looking like in the middle of May. It was rough, really rough, that at times I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to bring it back to life. I was weeding every day and it seemed like every time I weeded 10 more would replace the one I just took out. Nate even took out our rototiller and worked in the garden to get it looking better – that made all the difference. Once that was done I could actually see what might be possible.
The other day I headed early to the garden centre and picked up some replacement plants and some fillers. Its been raining though for the last week so I haven’t been able to go out and get them into the ground. Finally just decided to get them into the ground. I got all but 3 into the ground, the soil where the 3 were suppose to go was too wet and I sunk and again lost my boot.
Look how much happier my Gnome looks. And how much greener the grass is.
This is my Remembrance Columbine – it was named that as a memorial to the victims of Columbine.
This is Rhubarb that has finally come to our garden. It is from a cutting of my Grandma’s. It is thriving.
Back Bed – Before
The Back bed of our garden -updated. The ice cream buckets were to protect some plants so Nate didn’t rototill them down. Now they are gathering rain water.
Why is this 60 degrees of quilting separation? Because I plan to be in the back yard doing a lot of quilting this summer and I didn’t want to stare into a GROSS garden. Now I can sit back there and watch it grow and enjoy it.
