Gardening WeekendPosted by in Gardening
Once a year we have a gardening weekend, when the beds get cleaned up, mulched and each year I plant some new things. I have about a 75% success rate it seems, but I keep trying. The butterfly bush I planted last year didn’t make it. Some flowers didn’t make it and the deer were after my tulips. The good news was the peonies we transplanted made it and some came up from the spot we moved them from, so we’ve moved those too. The apple trees were my biggest success from last year – both made it.
You may notice in the photos that the side of the house is a mess – we’re in the middle of having it re-sided.
I’ll post photos later in the season once everything is flowering.
The herb garden has some new additions this year. I planted lemon grass and watercress (I am doubtful that will make it, but I’m trying). I didn’t have to buy parsley this year – it came up itself. My oregano has always come up on its own, but not this year, so I had to buy some.
I’ve still got some problem areas. We had a bush in front of our front porch die so there’s a big gaping hole I need to fill and we’re slowly trying to fill in a giant oval shaped garden at the side of our front yard. It’s so big and the deer eat a lot from it. We have a problem area along one line of our property where it was just horrible overgrown shrubs. We cleaned it out last year and this year planted two things there so maybe it will start to look decent soon.
