Gardening 2014: Take one.
The weeks that I've been waiting though, I've been busy. The part that stinks about being me is waiting. I am so not good at waiting. And so I get this grand idea that I'm going to make herb beds with fieldstone. Which I cannot get to the fieldstone that lines our property without busting trails. Then I think this is a great project for me to do by myself with the littles. Let me tell you, I wore myself out moving those huge fieldstones. It looks like no big deal in the picture, but looks are very deceiving. Most normal people would say it was good enough doing one after being so tuckered out. But no, I do two. I am quite happy with them.
I have oregano, chives, rosemary, thyme, mint and lemon mint in thus far. I have basil, cilantro and dill seedlings. Parsley will be planted too. Love having my own herbs.
This is the garden area-bordered by raspberry bushes, rhubarb, apple trees and blueberry bushes.
The main garden is 46x46feet.
Sometimes I worry I'm not doing enough, how great the results will be, if I'm missing a step or a page from the Farmer's Almanac. Really, I shouldn't worry. There's plenty of time to plant. The lilacs haven't even bloomed. It's not so pressing that I can't enjoy precious sites of my tiny gardeners. The process really quite fun in and of itself, especially when you have two littles in costumes.
