Beautiful day in the gardens
Today was a glorious day. Sun and hot temps. My back gardens are starting to explode.
Here are a few picks of the rockery.
As well last Friday was a PA day for my grandaughter so we decided to roto-till the veg garden. So 3 hours later it was ready for raking and cleaning up.
Boy was she a great little helper. She picked rocks, dead wood and grass that her papa had pulled up with the roto-till. She was so excited that earlier that day we went shopping for our vegs.
She picked lettuce, zucchini, cucumbers, corn, giant pumpkins, Tomatoes (beefsteak as well as cherry), basil and last but not least green beans.
We planted till the mosquitoes were about to take us away. But we got it all in.
The next day I added the old ladder
that was my dads and added a few garden artifacts as well as the birdhouse.
I placed the ladder over the beans so they have a place to climb.Look hard.
I was later told that my corn would grow but before we get to sample it the raccoons will eat it. hmmmm.
Well we shall see. This is our first veg garden at this house.
Now to keep Fergus and Max out as well as the little varmints.until next time, Linda
