Well... I got started on it.
Jester was fascinated by the tomato plant.
Look! There were perennials in this bed, too! I'm not anywhere near finished with it, and
I don't want to put these weeds on the compost heap, so I'm going to
ask Keith's advice. Some of these weeds are choking and very hard to dig out.
I still have to dig along the wood border at the front, and along the back of the bed.
We had to take some breaks up on the porch. It was between 60 and 65 out, so perfect gardening weather.
My plan is to finish the other side of the bed tomorrow, then dig at the front and backs Thursday,
and next week, I'll get some dirt and lots of mulch, and make them decent again.
That's where we'll hold until the house is rented.
Gail, from At the Farm asked me last night what
would happen if we rented to someone that didn't care about flowerbeds.
Don't think I haven't thought of that, over and over as I have been working.
I'm going on the advice of the realty agent who looked at the place in July,
and told me that it is the ideal setup for someone who wants a little place
in the country, and doesn't have to make their own gardens.
Crossing my fingers!
I'm also going to bring some of these plants over here to the new house.
Jester is so glad to be home!
I don't know if you can hear the cicadas in this little bit... they were singing all around us.
One of the cicadas!
