While we had gorgeous weather last weekend (we hit 82F on Sunday!), our days were scheduled with tasks that kept us from accomplishing very much around our place. In between helping with a wedding rehearsal dinner for a friend's son, helping with a move, and attending a wedding, we did manage to get a little bit done in the garden.
Even though we weren't able to accomplish all our goals for this past week, we didn't do too badly. I did transplant my seedlings into larger pots, and my men found the time to build both the new raised beds we planned on. However, our flower bed remains as it was; Lord willing, we'll find the time to divide and move some plants next week. I am excited to see my blue bells blooming despite the fact that the deer munched on their greenery earlier in the season. Pesky deer. Any advice you might have to share with me would be much appreciated. My romaine and spinach seedlings didn't make it out to the garden as planned, but they are in the process of being hardened off out on our front porch. They'll go into the garden next to the green leaf lettuce in the photo below (these are the plants my dad gave me a couple weeks ago -- I think it's time for some homegrown salad!).
Our strawberry patch is looking promising. :) Love freshly picked strawberries! Can't wait.
Peas have sprouted, but a hen got into the garden and dug up about 1/4 of this row (naughty hen); I put a few more seeds in the ground on Wednesday and hope they'll sprout.
Here's one of the new raised beds my guys built; tomatoes will go here. Don't know why I didn't take a picture of the other one...
Apple blossoms! Our cherry trees are also in bloom!
This week's plans? Lord willing we'll get to the flower bed this week. Spinach and romaine starts will be ready to be moved to the garden for sure. Hopefully, my Territorial order will arrive so that I can get some of my warm weather crop seeds started. And we'll have to make a dent in the weeds that will surely take over unless we take care of them now (surely you noticed them in the photo of the new raised bed).
In closing, I'll leave you with a photo of our seven little kittens. They're growing so quickly -- their eyes are opening! So sweet. :)
