I thought I would use this post to show you some of what I have been working on that is keeping me so busy I haven’t had time for regular posts lately. Gardening, of course!
The perennial beds all require weeding. And then there are plants to be split and moved to other flowerbeds or even new ones to start.
And the roses are plants that have needs all their own. They need regular fertilizing, treating for pests and diseases and frequent pruning.
The foxglove, I started from seed. As finicky as they were to get started, they don’t require much upkeep now. And they reseed!
There is also much to do that I haven’t seen the pay off for yet. This week I planted 80 gladiolus bulbs and several dahlia tubers. These are all ones that I dug up last fall and wintered over in the basement. I planted seedlings that I started on the enclosed porch last month. And there were seeds and seedlings to get started in the vegetable garden too.
I’m no where caught up and don’t expect to be again until the first frost. Plants have the ability to grow faster than I can keep up with them. Even so, I vow to do better at keeping up with regular blogging!
