Good day to you! I hope you had a merry Holiday weekend! Today I’m taking you on a ‘lil garden tour… won’t you come along?
Hopefully next time we tour zee Post Road Victory Garden it’ll be a LOT greener then this. But I thought it’d be fun to share it with you now… in all of it’s un-maintained beauty
There are but a few things in bloom and ready for the pickens here on Post Road.
My lilacs that I shared with you last week.
My seed geraniums have bloomed! (I shared my best seed starting tips in the Spring 2012 issue of Homebound)
Speaking of seeds… here’s what I use to start most of mine. I am in LOVE with my cold frames!! Seriously one of the best things the hubby has ever built moi!
We’ve been eating rhubarb and asparagus like it’s going out of style… good thing one of the two is healthful. Well, I’m sure rhubarb could be too but it sure isn’t in any of the forms I chose to devour.
Oh, and here is my rock path sidewalk. Dirty bugger almost put me into pre-term labor. It is a long trek up and down a steep bank to get them so I think this lil project will be on hold for a few more months.
Something ugly (love me some organic fertilizer!)
Something purty… these aren’t even from my garden.. just the side of the road. Love that I get to smell them on my morning walks and now some of them join me on the table in my new found vase.
The ants are having a party on my peonies! Thinking they may be in full bloom by the time we get back from The Farm Chicks Show.
Dreaming of a rock or brick path through my garden.. um, maybe after baby.. unless of course my dear hubby reads this and is spurred to install one for my Birthday Present??
So what do you think of my “Victory Garden”? My mouth starts watering just thinking of tomatoes ‘n basil, raspberries, blackberries, carrots, beets, radishes, peas, cucumbers, swiss chard, kale, spinach, lettuce, squash, pumpkins… um, did I miss something?
I guess it’s a lil late now cause this baby is PLANTED!
Now for the fun part…. let’s see what grows!!
Thanks so much for touring along with me… would love to hear your gardening dreams, plans, schemes, etc… in the comments. oooh baby, yes I am a BIG dreamer. Some of the other outdoor projects I’m dreaming of are a bench, arbor, outdoor shower, garden trellis, lavender to line my baby inducing rock path…. yadayada the list really does go on and on.
So really, truly it is YOUR turn! And feel free to send your questions. I do not claim to be an expert but I am a book nerd so have learned a tad or two along the way.
