The garden







I decided to make raised beds this year. So I got Joffre to haul lots of wood for me and cut wood for me and sledge hammer some stakes in the ground. Then I got busy drilling and screwing boards together. I am very excited.

We are almost done with them and while I wait till we can finish them I planted some more blueberries (and hooked them up to my rain barrel irrigation system that hopefully will work) , had the kids dividing Irises, and am trying to propagate hydrangeas. Very busy. I don't want to be inside because it is so lovely outside ( which doesn't bode well for homeschooling).

I have been reading an Edible Landscaping book by Rosalind Creasy. I really want to lose my lawn and have plants everywhere. Slowly but surely...

Soon I will be singing the "I hate weeds and pests" song but for now I love spring!
