This Weekend – Recap

Well, I have expanded! From two garden beds to four. I just have all the details to finalize. The details like… weed block for the edges and bottom of the inside of the beds, irrigation, soil mixture, and row cover structure. Just the details!

I also inherited a couple of feet of soaker hose for whenever we may go out of town. It will allow for automation of the watering of the fruit trees/bushes and ease for whomever I get to watch the gardens. I hope its ok from time to time I go into some information on the fruit trees and bushes. I like those too, and I also feel that fruit should be in everyone’s backyard! They just make for such a sweet treat on a hot day, straight off the plant! I had some delightful raspberries today at the same place where I got some soaker hose at Miss Mar’s house. They were planted already when she bought the house with Mr. Mar. Their bushes are large and just going crazy with raspberries at this time of year. She also has a couple of blueberry bushes that are also putting off loads of berries. And again I thank Miss Mar for all the extras she has around her place garden wise. And this is a reminder to you to see what your gardener friends might have so that you can remove and prevent things from entering the landfill. And what do you have that would be useful for others in your circle?

David and I also built a (small) stone wall, laid some pathways near the vegetable garden, and placed more mulch to be able to round out the vegetable garden area and make it more visually appealing. Now I just need to be able to convince David of the greenhouse for the wintertime… Hmm, I wonder, has anyone (besides Miss Mar, I know she has already) tried Territorial’s greenhouse tomato varieties?

With all I got done this weekend, what did you do this weekend?
