Wow what an amazing day. Looking out this morning it looked like it would be cold out but once venturing out I realized it was quite pleasant. Jeans and tee shirt weather....
I have kicked off the gardening season!
Container 1- In the middle daffodils and around the outside edge sweet peas. Once they get going I have a tripod bamboo thing I will put over the top and the peas can grow up it.
Container 2- (a wooden wine crate)- spinach seeds.
Container 3- (another wooden wine crate)- butter lettuce.
Transplanted the daphnie into a larger pot. Put some nice fresh Garden Soil- which came in a bag- on top of my blueberries and other little plants that made it through the winter. Everything has a nice fresh top dressing.
I saw some peonies in someones yard and they were about 3 inches tall... mine are just starting to poke out of the soil. I moved them away from the house so hopefully they will start getting a bit more sun. I also moved the blueberries away from the house. I know we are not done with the wet weather so I left the spinach and lettuce close to the house so they don't flood. I hope they get enough sun to sprout.
I need yard sales start up soon so I can find some cheap containers. 5 gallon buckets work nice for tomatoes.
It being light longer is nice- I felt like I got a lot done today.
