Front Yard Update
I haven't posted in a while, but it's not because I've been avoiding the garden,
just too lazy to post. The last two weekends the weather has been beautiful so I've been
working on the front yard.
I dug out the bed on the other side of the front walk. (The first half I did over Thanksgiving break w/ my MIL). I filled the bed w/ mulch, society garlic, and "shasta" daisies. I've been wanting society garlic since I moved in 2 1/2 years ago and finally found the perfect place.
I took another trip to the cemetery on sunday morning for rocks. I added a border to the front yard to help w/ erosion. I also put a border around the new melon bed that I dug out. I am very sore from swinging that pick-axe!
Here are my new potato bags. I bought these from "Gardener's Supply Company".
I planted the potatoes 4 weeks ago.
Here's the first sign of life in one of the potato bags. Thank goodness, I was starting to get worried. The paperwork I have says it takes at least 4 weeks, but I always worry until I see the first sprout. This is my first time growing potatoes so I'm excited to see how it works out.
