Garden Update

So of course it's gardening time and here are some photos taken April 30th- Click on each photo to see it full size-

We are in the middle of adding Cotton Burr compost, gypsum and vermiculite to the raised beds- some are done but 3 are still left to do (we have a total of 13 - 5ft x 22ft beds)

the front bed is planted with flower seeds

April 30 2015 014the other new bed I put in last year-  I think I put in 4 of them- I get FREE hostas from the neighbor, she has a knack for throwing down seed and they grow like crazy!  I help her by "thinning them" lol and then I add other varieties that I fall for when I find them.

"going to be" a hosta bed this year, when I pull up a big rock I put it in the line- will spray with roundup to kill weeds and grass and then have hubby till it and put in the plants and then bark

I hope you enjoyed my evening photo shoot. As you know if you follow my blog posts, I take photos every year throughout the year to journal my progress.

Have an awesome weekend everyone!  Kay has Friday off we are gardening and getting haircuts - lol  Saturday I will be at a Relief Society Service project while he is helping clean the church and Sunday is my 53rd Birthday-  holy cats!  All I want for my birthday is my 28 year old body back! lolololol

Hugs!
