I think I can accomplish this! Settling into a new house and gardens is always hard at first but if the jobs are done right, then the enjoyment lasts for ages to come.
|The shade gardens are progressing along nicely|
Lots to do, but I know you'll have fun getting your list checked off. Your shade garden does look pretty!ReplyDelete
That's one ambitious list Jenni but I know you'll accomplish every item on it! The shade gardens, a.k.a. Truckview are looking very nice!ReplyDelete
What do you fertilize your strawberries with? I have a bunch of the ones you brought to the swap, and they are flowering like crazy. They're in potting soil, and not in the ground though.ReplyDelete
That is quite a list! It's true, gardens are a lot of work at first, but a good foundation makes the next few years easier.
Ah I remember those lists...had one last spring for our first year here. Threw it away because I never got it all done.ReplyDelete
Suddenly it goes from cold, to hot here, and last year the mosquitoes were so bad all day, all night. This year I am still working on last years projects, but that's OK. It's all getting done in good time.
Your garden is lovely.
That's a lot of stuff to do. Good luck! Is that a flowering Philadelphus tree I see in your shade garden?ReplyDelete
Have fun with your new gardens!!ReplyDelete
So what are you gong to do next week? :)ReplyDelete
Don't pressure yourself to get it all done right now. I'm finding that always having projects ahead of me is part of the FUN of having a new house and yard.ReplyDelete
Don't forget to put a little bit of lazy time on that list.ReplyDelete
Your shade garden is looking lovely...sit enjoy !!!ReplyDelete
