Gardening Update

So far everything is still alive lol!  I finished my planting this past weekend. Thankfully that part is done and over with!

I got my “Mailbox Garden” done, all I need to do now is string up the solar fairy lights I bought from amazon. I thought it would be a nice addition to this garden for at night.

This is the picture of the garden with my supposed helper… shame she doesn’t do anything other than lay in the shade and “supervise” lol!!!

The little rose I got for Mother’s Day is still doing really well along with the shrub that I divided and transplanted!

The front garden is a multitude of different greens and looks fresh and healthy right now from all the rain. I have been trying to add different shrubs each year to fill in that garden, and the hummingbirds have been making the rounds on my “collection” of feeders!

I got all of my tomato and pepper plants in the ground and started.

My first blooming lilac bush is in full bloom… my favourite time of year… I absolutely love the smell of lilacs!

And all the veggies I planted a few weeks ago are thriving!  I planted cherry tomatoes, zucchini, peas, cucumbers, beets, Brussel sprouts, watermelon, red onions and red and yellow flesh potatoes.  Hopefully I can keep everything alive long enough to enjoy a little “harvest.”

And the start of summer would be summer without the calves making appearances.  There is nothing better than watching the calves hop and play with each other!

And finally we bought a new patio set for the back deck to replace the old stuff we had.  It’s funny because we put the old stuff out to the road thinking someone from the trailer park at the end of our road may take it sometime over the weekend….. it was gone in 5 minutes!!!! I had barely taped the Free sign to it before someone pulled up with a truck and trailer and took it home lol!

This is the new set up!
