I am pretty durn excited about the garden. Obsessed is more like it. I walked out to the orchard and was surprised, no dumbfounded to see over 100 robins in the grass. A regular robin convention! The wet field must be full of noisy worms, ripe for the picking. I have never seen so many robins in one spot before.
These fat daffodil buds are finally showing their robustitude. Doubled flowers. I am impressed.
And all around the property I am finding what looked like bunches of chives, but when I pulled one out, it seemed a bit fatter...could it be onions, left over from the previous year?
I replanted this one closer to the house so I could watch its development.
Our Christmas order of plants came in and some of them could go directly into the shade garden, while others have to wait until the sun garden actually has DIRT. In the meantime, let's get them started in pots.
Potting soil and one bulb each, topped with water and more soil and then outside in this makeshift greenhouse.
It doesn't look like much right now, but
just you wait. I am not posting the six or so other pictures of dirt with markers...I worked hard on them too, but how interesting is dirt? Hey, when you have mostly red clay to work with, real dirt is HEAVENLY.
We had the shoplight in the garage and I bought some growlights to rig up this system. The iron supports are from a garage sale. I can't believe we actually moved them from IL.
And at the end of the day, a hot soaking tub, a magazine and a cold glass of white. Priceless.
