Mark got me a load of mulch yesterday afternoon, so I have to get it unloaded so he can use his truck. The trailor is too heavy with the mulch on it, so I've been working all morning on getting it unloaded (he had to take the van today to work). It's taking alot longer than I hoped because I can never just throw the mulch on. I must weed and thin out first and one task leads to another :)
I did get the front of the house done. I made it about 2 feet wider and rebuilt the walls. Feels so good to finally have that done. Now I'm onto the gardens along the path down to the house. Then I want to widen the one side about 6 feet and add more plants. When I first started these gardens, my Aunt Rosie was here. I can hear her saying not to plant them too closely because they grow quickly and you'll have to thin them out! Man, I should of listened better! So, the solution is to make MORE gardens and move the plants around again :)
This picture is before I moved the rocks, dug that ground up and weeded it. Then I put the mulch down and the rocks back. It's alot of work but I just love doing it! I find it so satisfying!
Here's my lovely feet with a "mulch flip-flop" tan and a desperate need of new nail polish!
Titus was in the garden getting peas. Like his "pocket" ?!?!?!
