Getting there…Posted: April 24, 2013
This past weekend was a little more TLC than it was gardening, but it’s all part of the “master plan”.
Here’s a little recap of our progress so far.
The last picture shows what we accomplished this past weekend. It doesn’t look that much different from the week before…You may notice that we got rid of the “junk” – stuff we pulled out of the back of the garden.
Dave worked with my dad on putting up a chicken wire fence for most of the day Saturday. They ripped out the dead and ugly bushes and plants to start – everything I didn’t manage to get done the weekend before.
Aside from clean-up, that’s all we got done. I spent most of Saturday not working, so the credit for what was done goes entirely to my dad and husband. This upcoming weekend we’re getting some 6′ cedars to plant along the chicken wire fence. This will give us the privacy we need, create a lush green backdrop for the rest of our garden, and most importantly, begin to shield that pink playhouse behind us!
On another note, there isn’t much happening yet in our beds – we still have a lot of planting to do – but I did notice the first hints of cress popping up the other day!
And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles.
