This month brings a lot of green! I planted some bulbs in the fall but being it’s their first year I think they have been a little slow in blooming. No color yet. I have many more plants than what I have pictured here but I figured there was only so much green we could all take. Here are a few highlights:
Lettuce Box – I planted some more lettuce a few weeks ago.
What else is going on? A lot. I put together 10 more miniature greenhouses with summer vegetables. I added organic fertilizer to my already established plants. I planted five dwarf fruit trees and two honeyberry bushes. I have rhubarb, asparagus and potatoes that need to be planted. I’ve also been slowly weeding and I need to mulch a bit more. My rose bushes should be arriving in the next week or so.
As for the lawn, I put down an application of early spring organic fertilizer and did a bit of raking to remove snow mold and leaves from last fall. I also picked up sticks and trimmed our large tree. We will probably let the grass get a bit high before the first mow. My biggest hurdle with the lawn is the area where Lulu does her business. It’s been impossible, so far, to keep grass completely alive over there.
How are things shaping up in your garden and yard?
