What a great week! We made some changes to the garden this year, adding five 4’ x 4’ raised beds, instead of the one 15 foot bed that I thought I had successfully negotiated for … Why? … Because, DH found these ‘ready made’ containers – and thought they would be easier/cheaper … Silly man! I sent him back for more (to finish out the garden space). So, THEN we had to paint them and add sills/tops (DOH!!)! But now, the garden is done – full to the max with various containers for growing! THERE YOU GO – as of today, our garden is 99% planted! YAY! Here’s a quick photo:
All of my studio-window plant starts are in, and we added some new herbs, vegetables and flowers this year: Borage (… who knew?), dill, sage, mint, chamomile, cantaloupe (as the chicken ladies love them), and 2 varieties of sweet pumpkins, along with dahlias, petunias and 6 pots of sunflowers (5 gallon ‘construction buckets’ … fancy – NOT!). Combined with all the other things we’ve grown/tried growing in past gardens … I’m so excited! I even made plans (a ‘blueprint’) for us to follow!
We harvested a bit from our [previously planted] perennial herbs (thyme and chives – I will never need to purchase either of these herbs in my lifetime – Ummm … EVER!!!). We made the spinach/ham quiche again (so yummy), along with some amazing egg salad [no photo] – Thank you, ladies!
And – we’ve had pool days every day this week. Chloe even had her first dip … Plus – I have one more day of sunshine and pool-time before heading back to work. Peace and hugs, Ya’ll!
