gardening!


It’s been absolutely gorgeous lately, so we’ve been hard at work putting in the garden.

Sparkle & Doom DesignsWe’ve got the regular plots rototilled, and the peas and corn have been planted.  There’s a lot more to do, later today and all day tomorrow.

I moved some of the plants to take advantage of different things.  I planted the corn where the beans were last year to take advantage of the nitrogen that the beans fixed in the soil.  I’m moving the tomato’s to avoid blight.  They can’t grow in the same spot over and over again apparently.  Peas are getting more room, as I love peas, so I want lots!!

I’ve planted 2 rows of peas, and I’m using an old iron headboard and foot board as part of the trellis.  I think it’ll add a lot of charm.  I’m also putting old birch sections at one end.  I’m planting snapdragons and daisies in them and putting in the spoon row markers that I made {with great assistance from my husband!}.  If the garden is cute, maybe I will enjoy weeding? Here’s hoping. 🙂

Sparkle & Doom DesignsWe started this new plot this year.  We’ve got it tilled, sodded, and manure spread on it.  It needs one more tilling then I’ll be planting beans, corn, and pumpkins using the Three Sisters Method.  I’m actually kinda excited about it. 🙂

My hands are so rough from the hard work. I got soft hands over the winter! They’re predicting a dry hot summer, which I won’t mind.  We have so much ground water here that we could use a little hot weather to dry things up a bit.
