I didn’t make New Years Resolutions this year. Instead, I made gardening goals! I didn’t want to pick things that I couldn’t stick to and wouldn’t achieve. Gardening is also very important to me. I love being outside, growing plants fills me with awe and has the side benefit of feeding my family. We’ve also been trying to get a garden set up here since we moved in 3 1/2 years ago and I am determined this is going to be the year. So, without further ado, here is my garden update for what we accomplished this week.
My main gardening goals are:
After the crazy amount of snow we had over the last few weeks….
It rained for several days and we were back to square one! We’re very lucky that our new yard isn’t like our old one. At our old place the ground was heavily clay based and we always joked that we had a swimming pool in the backyard over the winter and early spring. But, not so here! After 2 days of heavy rains, all that snow is gone, all the rain is gone, and the ground in the back yard is dry!!!
A little late with my posting!!! Busy evenings with the baby have kept me up to my eyeballs in baby snuggles (can it get any better than that??) My garden plans this year are big!!! We've cleared a huge area 35 feet by 17 feet for our new garden!! See my latest blog post for our garden plans and updates!!! (Link in bio) #hhphotoaday
Here’s how we’re making out:
We did have a few minor mishaps that have slowed down some of our progress. First, we lost our bunny. He nibbled through the wiring of his cage and we haven’t seen him since. Second, I awoke this morning to….SNOW! It snowed for a good hour straight, then it stopped. We only got an inch of snow and it melted away in the warmth of the afternoon sun. Back to square one.
