... You know what that means! Gardening!
Josh finally gave our lawn it's first (and much-needed) mowing of the year. I am so glad, too, because we were starting to be "those people". You know, the ones that don't mow their lawns? Those people.
Although he looked a little scary while he was doing it...
I went to Home Depot for some plants, and I was pleased I made it in time to get some lettuce (I missed it last year)... they didn't have many veggies available, so I got some hot peppers (since they did so well last year), brussels sprouts, and 3 kinds of lettuce (butter, red, and romaine). Our asparagus we planted last year is already growing like crazy!
See all that tall asparagus? Look how fat they are!
I really hope everything flourishes, and no critters eat my lettuce!
Last year I think we overcrowded the garden a little, so I wanted to keep it more sparse this time around. I opted to plant my herbs alongside the garage, along with a gardenia plant and a hydrangea. I really hope they do well!
(this is them before planting)
I have basil, thyme, lavender and rosemary. I also planted some mint, but it is in a pot so it doesn't take over everything, and some sage that I planted in a pot last year has come back with a vengeance... it's pretty huge for it only being the beginning of April!
Our poor garage was built the same time as our house (1928) and I am hoping we can replace some of the bad boards and give it a new coat of paint this year to match the house.
I'm really looking forward to our daily garden-waterings again! Such a nice relaxing thing to do after work... and I love checking the progress of everything...
Hoping we can get a few fruit trees in this year, too, and do something with the flowerbeds out front... just a few annuals and some azaleas would be enough to tide me over!
