Sounds like you are getting the new place set up the way you have wanted, and making good use of the larger space.

A warm, but very windy day today. It is supposed to rain most of the day tomorrow. Today the Kid and I got a row of peas planted and some more onion sets. I still need to dump a load of brush and buy a truckload of compost (or two) for my new raised bed and several other spots around the place that need it. Then I can get my potatoes planted.

I'm glad you were able to get some seeds planted. We're supposed to get rain tonight through Friday.

I looked out the front window a little while ago and got a bit of a shock. My lilacs are blooming! When did that happen?

Hubby is off work this week and so today we took the Kid to the giant garden center the next town over. He had fun wondering the aisles looking at all of the flowers and plants. We spent a while in the herb section sniffing plants as well.

I brought home a couple of rosemary plants, a paprika pepper plant and bought some bamboo rods to climb pole beans on. I am putting them in a teepee around one of the stumps in the backyard for the Kid to play under this summer.

That sounds like a great idea! And, he can munch on the beans if he wants to.

Sounds like a nice way to spend part of the day. I'm sure the Kid will love his bean fort.

Planted my kale and a few flower seeds in the front garden the other day. Tonight we stopped to buy some paint and I got a few pepper plants (bell and sweet banana) and 6 more tomato plants (beefmaster). I also got a beautiful columbine for my entry garden.

Tonight I over seeded the backyard with some clover and some rye grass. Hopefully tonight's rain will get it growing fast.

Today I finally got my potatoes planted. cheers I also planted some sweet banana peppers. The other day the Kid and I did a bit of planting as well. We planted some Brussels sprouts and bok choy in one of the planters.

In other garden news... hubby hit a tree root with our old second hand push mower today and it broke. The blade was bent and oil was oozing out of the muffler. Time for another used one. We just use it to mow rough places around the yard. Better to wreck a cheap used mower than a new one.

I still need to get my potatoes planted, I'm hoping to get my landscape fabric bags made this week.

Sorry about the mower, but you are right about cheaper to replace when bought used. Wink My dh was a mower wrecker, we would go through 2-3 mowers a season. Sad

The Kid and I worked on my shady entry garden for a while this morning. I went to a plant sale at a local lumber yard the other day and was able to buy a Guacamole hosta and a Patriot hosta, each in gallon pots, for $3.99 each and I also got some small potted lupines for $2.49 each.

Most of the tiny hosta starts that I bought last year (5 for $4.00) came back up. One of the two Ostrich ferns survived the winter and so did the white bleeding hearts. For some reason the pink bleeding heart is no where to be seen. I am also seeing a few of the Asiatic lilies popping up.

Earlier this year I got some giant columbine to add to the bed and a few impatients. Now all I need are some more lilies and other bulbs for this planting area to be what I consider full and complete.

It sure looks different than when it was a bed of poison ivy and tree sprouts!

I bet it looks really pretty when all the flowers are in bloom against the different green shades of the hostas and ferns.

I am hoping that it will. It is not there yet - just in my mind's eye. I am buying very small perennials because they are cheap. Last year the hosta were only about two or three small leaves each. This year the leaves are somewhat bigger, but they have a long way to go to fill out the space. Still... there is hope and it looks better than brush and weeds.

I do the same thing when buying plants, that way my $$ stretch further for my landscape projects.

Finally got my red raspberries trellised today. I also cleaned the City Biddy coop and used the bedding (mostly wood shavings) to mulch some of my tomatoes.
