Spring Planting

Post by snort on Wed 23 Apr 2008, 2:01 pm

Ok, here's the list accompli so far:

1 Fruitless Mulberry Tree, 1 Mimosa Tree, 1 Japanese Maple, 1 Wisteria, 1 Forsythia, 1 Carolina Jasmine, 3 Nandinas, 1 Toamto, 4 or 5 basils, 1 dill, 1 oragano, 1 Lavander.

Purchased, but not planted: 1 Watermelon, 1 Cantalope, 1 Cucumber, 6 Okra, 1 Sweet Yellow Pepper, 1 Thyme, the other Lavander. I think that's it.

I have spent a inimum of two hours every day (except Tues) in the yard working since last Saturday. I'm tired, but inspired. I put out a seed birdfeeder and a hummingbird feeder and we're getting all kinds of visitors now.

You guys?

I need to get my chilli pepper seeds germinated, but as i\'m going on holiday soon, for two weeks, i can\'t....they will die without my loving....i need to whisper to them, and stroke them.

Also have some interesting tomato seeds, i\'ll just have to go through all the seeds i have and pick the ones i think will do well in a short growing season.

Wish me luck!

Wow, I wish I had the time and dedication to keep our garden, but...well...I don't. My mums big on trees, so we have like 8 greengage trees and three apple trees, which bare alot of fruit in the summer. So there always lots of lovely waspies around.

A few years back I had a herb garden, but it was too time consuming to maintain properly. But I think the main main herbs were lavender, basil, sage, tangerine sage (my favourite, smells gorgeous!) camomile, parsley, rosemary, mint, oregano and golden feverfew. I also planted some cat nip seperately for the cat, but it drove him nuts and he dug it up after 2 days. I harvested my herbs and dried them properly, so I had one good summer, but after that our garden got flooded, so they all died.

I hope in a few years, when I have more time on my hands to try again, I would so love to have a garden I can be proud of. As for visitors, we've suddenly been taken over by rabbits, there are always at least 2 rabbits in our garden at any one time, this morning we had no less than 6. They seem to be breeding. Rapidly. Very Happy

all i get in my garden are the neighbourhood cats lol

me and neo plants some lucky clover, some Lilly's, some thyme, some parsley, a sakura tree (pink) and some more crocus bulbs

but as it was starting to get dark and cold we went in and washed the compost from my hands and neos mouth and hands lol

mine are all in tubs as i have to sort the garden itself out
the last people who lived here covered the ground in gravel with no plastic sheeting and then didn't bother to weed so i have to find the time to get rid of all the gravel before i can plant anything in the ground. but its gonna be a big job lol

i know!

my elderly neighbours have done it but they did it properly and it makes the garden more manageble for them plus they havent covered the whole garden and have done it in a really pretty way

but this was done in a really stupid way

im quite shocked that heraldo ventured into the paganism section lol
i know he hasnt got a problem with it but i didnt know if hed wander in lol

he'll be back in a week and then we'll have our pest back lol
