So every day we do a little here, and a little there. Here’s what we have from the past week or so. Sunday we got a few plants from the nursery. Mints, basil, peppers, and a couple different tomatoes, and a couple more strawberries.
Tuesday I set the kiddo’s to cleaning up the chairs outside. They were covered in dust and spiderwebs from the winter. Ya gotta have chairs to rest in when you’re working outdoors most of the day.
Then we started planting.
Wednesday we did some more plants. I have onion starts that I used up about half of a bag in these black plant pots. Some of these already have green onion shoots coming up out of them. Yaayyy! We still have 80 red onions to plant, and about 50 more sweet onions. Those are going in the wood chip areas with potatoes and garlic though. And we also did some blueberries, but a friend of ours said that raspberries do sooooo much better here, so we’re going to get some cuttings soon from him, and start them along our fence.
Thursday we went and picked up some fruit trees. Did the same again on Saturday, so now we’ve got four new trees to plant. One Golden Delicious apple, one Granny Smith apple, and two plum trees. Yes, we drove home very very carefully! Don’t need anyone putting an eye out. 😛
Friday we did some seed planting indoors. Tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, stevia, peppers, hot peppers, marigolds, and three or four different lettuce.
Kiddo’s are helping with everything. 🙂
Friday we also did roses. I haven’t had roses since FL, so I am overjoyed about getting a few new ones here! Here’s the ones we got. They’re just cuttings grafted on to a root right now, but by the end of the year we should have some growth, and next year we’ll have beautiful plants!
And here’s the whole shebang outside right now. It was a good week!
Next week will consist of planting the four fruit trees we’ve gotten, and watering and keeping these warm. Hopefully by the end of next week we’ll get potatoes and onions in the ground also. Next round of planting seeds begins the first of June. We’re going to be doing pumpkins, beans, and zucchini, and a couple of other squashes, and some carrots. Then in August we’re going to be doing kale, and snow peas! Yumm yumm yumm!
Next round of pictures are some fun shots I got around the yard while planting.
