Tough cookies. My sewing time has been drastically reduced, we're still figuring out our new routine so adventures are few, and my garden is my new fixation. I try to grab some time here and there when the kids are napping to work in it. This week we took another trip to a local nursery, and I came back with a trunk full of flowers. On Thursday I dug some trenches for these climbing roses:
I think this climbing jasmine vine will end up in a pot that I purchased today at the grocery store, and probably live on the front porch:
Not sure where these berry bushes (raspberry and blackberry) will end up; but I think I want at least one more:
I also have some pretty roses in the front bed:
Today being Saturday, I had the luxury of another set of parenting hands to watch the kids, and I got to spend a couple hours weeding and mulching (with help, of course).
Jeremy and Natasha built a trellis for the peas, too:
I harvested enough lettuce, arugula and spinach for a nice sized salad:
And now our garden looks like this:
Hello, tasty red- and green leaf lettuce!
Nice to see you, pretty pretty snap pea vines!
And of course our spaghetti squash and arugula, going strong:
I can't believe it has taken me so long to get into vegetable gardening. I LOVE it!
