I am uploading the first photos for the 2011 garden season to my Flickr account, but needed to take a stop in here to gloat a little at the tremendous amount of work we got done in the garden this morning:
- irrigation system installed in all the boxes and on that side of the yard
- 3 yards of mulch received at 8 am, distributed to all the places it belongs
- March seeds planted: peas, gai lan, joi choi, sui choi, radish & mustard
- Front yard raked of debris and mulch spread on the boulevard bed
This follows on last weekend’s successful start at getting all the beds turned, a hole dug out for the bathtub in which we planted bamboo (to the left in the above picture), cleaned out all the potted things and replanted many of them, and dug in two new blueberry bushes that have been sitting in pots all winter waiting for a new home.
With all that (and in particular the irrigation system which I am very excited about) we are officially ready for spring planting now and not a moment too soon. Bring on the warmer weather!
