The weather finally let off raining for a little bit. So we did a big ol’ “YES” over here while jumping up and down with excitement. Finally we can do some garden planting.
Lee dug a bed for the asparagus Friday night after work. This area was in the low section of the garden so Lee had to use a shovel due to the many rocks in the soil. I watched him. It looked exhausting. I told him so.
Then on Saturday he hoed a new 30 foot bed for some more potatoes. It still looked exhausting. I told him that again.
On Sunday he decided to hoe some more beds. He did a little one that finished out a previously hoed bed.
Then he did a new longer row. I told him he was making me tired.
“Are you tired yet Lee?” I kept asking him that over and over.
I think he was getting tired of my questions, so I decided that he wasn’t that tired.
We planted the potato bed and the asparagus, but I haven’t planted anything in the other one and a half beds. Lee added several pounds of lime to each bed to start adjusting the pH. Rain was in the forecast so I didn’t want the seeds to rot. When I wasn’t watching Lee hoeing the garden beds I did some weeding in my flower beds. A few of my plants didn’t make it over the winter but most of them did so I was happy overall.
I also noticed that the lilac bushes are all out in bloom. My dad and sister hate lilacs because they get headaches. I don’t mind them though. If I had room inside I would cut big bouquets and put them around the house — it’s like bringing the outdoors inside.
One of my favorite trees is now blooming: the Dogwood. I love how long they bloom.
I’m thinking about cutting out this flowering bush. It’s in front of the Dogwood tree and it reminds me of Queens Anne’s Lace, which I hate. (Mainly because we have so much of it that grows out in our fields at the moment.)
