The Start of the Garden 2010

It's been raining cats and dogs for about 10 days. And everyday I have off and planned to work outside, it would rain. Today was finally only cloudy. So I got to work.

Seed Packets

Well, really I started to plan a few weeks ago. Ordered seeds online from Seed Saver's Exchange.

Rain Boots

Rain Boots were purchased.

Starting to Plan

Plans and drawings are started. Because, after living here about a year, we have realized that the garden needs a LOT of work for it to be the outdoor space we really want. We're getting a new back fence in a couple of weeks.

Bad Fence

See? We need a new fence. And I can't rip out the trees that the fence is leaning on until the fence is fixed.

So I started small today.

New Lavender

Planted a new little lavender.

Newly Trimmed Tree

Trimmed the tree back. I should have taken a before picture. Trimming involved me and a bevy of tools on a ladder. It filled up the "yard waste" bin which signals the end of working outside for today.

But hopefully, this will be a very fruitful season.

Thanks for the reminder to get my act together for my garden. I wish I could find some of the seeds you have here. I may have to order off the internet too then!
