Re-Garden - Day 5

DAY 5


The whole gang and I went to our local nursery and picked out plants for the new garden. We bought a lot of herbs, some flowers, a strawberry plant and even aplants in garden peanut plant! (F.W. wanted that one. I’m not sure if it will be warm enough to grow peanuts, but we’ll see.) We had those plus the plants saved from the old garden to plant. With everyone pitching in we planted them in no time!

wood chips
Before I add the soil to the garden, I want to create paths that help shape my actual planting areas. I’m going to make “wedges” in this garden, and each wedge will have a different theme. I’m going to separate each wedge by putting wood chips down. These wood chips will separate my garden beds and act as paths. Also they help cover the newspaper so I can put soil down only where I'll be planting (great compost is like a treasure and I don't want to waste any).

Re-Garden - Day 3

DAY 3

 

I went to my local newspaper office and asked if they have any old newspapers they would be willing to give me. Boy did they! No, I don’t want to read the same articles over and over again, I need them for the garden. And, no Ramses, I'm not planting newspaper trees. You see, to prevent the weeds from coming up again,Moo-Cow newspapering garden I’m covering the entire garden bed with the papers! I'm breaking each newspaper up into its sections (arts, sports, etc.) and laying those down with the edges overlapping. Moo-Cow helped me but I kept catching him reading the paper instead of laying them out.

I
n addition to pulling weeds and raking I also moved the ring of rocks that surrounded the original garden. They had been there so long many were buried and some even had these cool looking ant colonies under them!

Re-Garden - Day 1

Remember my shade garden that I planted last fall? Well, this is what it looks like this spring!

Shade garden the next year.

I just raked it out, added some wood chips to prevent weeds from coming up, and watered it a few times. Aside from that I haven’t done any other maintenance and it is already starting to look so beautiful! Spring sure makes me happy!

 

It’s a good thing my shade garden doesn’t require a lot of work because I have a new project over at the Moo-Cow Fan Club Headquarters that is going to take up all my extra time this week.

A New Friend!


I would like to introduce you to a new friend of ours, Mr. S. Hill!

S. Hill Zoom

Remember when I was making a border for my shade garden? Well, Moo-Cow came around and took a couple of the rocks that were too big for me to use, and hauled them off. He's always so hush hush about what he's working on that I could only wonder what he would use two big rocks for.
