Some weeks are all about enjoying the beautiful flowers and fruits of the garden and some weeks are all about working in order to enjoy them. 🙂
This past week was all about the non-glamorous side of gardening which included a lot of weeding, moving around of some plants to better accommodate a walkway, digging up some Hosta for a fellow Master Gardener, repotting vegetable seedlings for our upcoming Master Gardener plant sale, and the spreading of four yards of mulch.
Weeding is right up there on my list with raking leaves – I’d rather do something else. 🙂
I pruned out all the dead branches, put down landscape fabric and some pine needle mulch on top. It’s amazing how much free mulch you can find under all the pine trees we have. 🙂
I don’t know if we’ll get any blueberries off these bushes this year, but they have produced pounds of beautiful fruit in the past and hopefully will do so again.
From flowers to fruit to vegetables – fellow blogger, Diane at Garden Sunshine posted a photo of her Aunt’s front yard vegetable garden. I’ve seen my share of vegetable gardens on all sides of a yard, but I’ve never seen one this gorgeous. Aunt Jane’s Garden. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling pretty inadequate here. 🙂
And, no garden would be complete without a fairy garden right?
Here’s hoping you have one so the garden fairies can stop and sit a spell. I’m looking for some that might pull a few weeds before they sit a spell, but so far I don’t have any takers.
Happy gardening this weekend! 🙂
