Here is a picture of My Little Backyard Garden.
I took this picture a couple of weeks ago. Now, imagine it with 8 inches of snow over it with another 1/4 in of ice underneath.
The raised garden beds are littered with pine needles that I will need to remove. The orange pots are full of those artichoke plants I had such high hopes for. The artichokes were suppose to be ones that you could harvest artichokes in one season. I think they sent me the wrong seeds. Boo…hoo….I babied those artichokes for 10 months.
Here are a few of the planters I used on the patio. I planted egg plant and sweet peppers on the patio. The good news is that they did great!
The Little Garden is just waiting for warmer weather.
You are probably wondering why I am showing you pictures of a dormant garden.
Well, it is just a reminder that is just about time to start planting your seedlings indoors.
I will be starting my onions, peas and a few other seeds in the next few weeks.
I plan on having a early spring garden and install a floating row covers over the raised garden beds to protect the new plants from the potential cold weather.
Company and I are planning on having a large garden at his country home. We planted several fruit trees to add on to what he already had, back in the fall.
With the help of the grand girls, we planted 2 more apple trees, a peach tree and four cherry trees.
Company had this great hole digger on his tractor. It makes planting trees pretty easy.
We planted another peach tree next to the one he had, to see if it would help produce bigger peaches.
We also planted 2 different varieties of apple trees and planted those near the 4 he already has.
Lastly, we planted 4 cherry trees in his front yard. We thought they would be pretty there next to the old civil war cemetery.
Did I ever mention he has a civil war cemetery on the edge of his front yard?
How fun (creepy) is that? : )
Hope they like cherry trees.
Just wanted to give you an update on my latest garden report.
What are you planning on planting this spring/summer/fall?
