I apologize for being absent for a few days. This time it wasn't lazy me, unfortunately, it was our Internet again. It's been on and off, and it's so annoying. Ironically, we had a salesman stop by today tying to sell us OUR Internet service, and to my question why it's not working all he could mumble was that we could upgrade to a better speed for more money. Yeah, right... We have a decent speed already... when it works... So, thank you but no thank you.
So forgive me for skipping my usual Monday post. I'm pretty sure you will survive without looking at my compost feed this time around :)
Instead I want to talk gardening today because I'm so excited about this season. This year I've been slacking on it, mainly, because we wanted to re-do our raised beds. The old ones weren't really raised and I would get all kinds of junk and clippings inside. And yes, clippings are great for the actual lawn, not so much for the vegetable garden (since we try to keep our garden organic). Sorry, don't have any before pictures but these are the after (don't pay attention to all the weeds, I still need to tackle them):
I got some parsley back from last year and I have onions but that's it in the beds so far. But I will use them mostly for tomatoes and squashes. I also got the green house I really wanted:
So far I planted peppers and cucumbers in there:
On the other hand, my container strawberries are all blooming:
And look what I found today hiding under the branches:
The first rose of the season! I'm so excited about it! The garden season is definitely here and it's on, baby, it's on!
Do you have a garden? What have you planted so far? What do you plan to plant?
