Hello again my Tuesday Friends!
It's wet and green in our world right now. Mother Nature has been trying hard to get us out of our official drought status 😊
We've gotten approximately 4 inches of rain since last week and everything is turning GREEN, GREEN, GREEN!
It has made it a bit difficult to get any work done out there but we have managed a bit .
I did get one of the new deep raised beds built.
It has well rotted logs in the bottom of it and will be filled with amended top soil for good drainage. We'll see how this experiment goes. It will be after the second year before I can really tell as the wood should have finished rotting by then. Lots of nitrogen was added to the rotten logs to speed with breakdown and to keep the end soils more balanced.
Mini and I did a walk about today between rain showers.. She loves to walk in the water 😊
By the end of the walk she looks like a drowned rat . LOL!
The fish pond is full of frogs...leaves too still but that will be another project for a sunny day.
The apple trees are full of blooms ♥...
...the Redbuds are opening up and the woods are looking purple.
The over flow creek is running wild and Blue Bells are blooming in the deep woods.
This little section of the woods won't be cleared out completely ... it is where The ginseng garden will go this fall. It takes 7 years for the ginseng to mature so it will be called the
Practicing Patience Garden.
Still no potatoes planted... mud is not good to work in but I'm not complaining. We have gone from severe drought to moderate drought in one week.
I did finish the Garden Journal cover and here it is with my ever present cup of coffee.
