Outside in Yard again today

Thursday, June 02, 2011

I worked in the yard for 5 hours this morning. Yesterday, Hubby tilled a patch for me to plant in and I planted 13 Nandina plants.....the kind that gets berries in winter. I love them and they are so much fun to decorate with. They get large grape-like clusters of red berries and they can be used in so many decorations at Christmas. At my last house, one in particular had so many clumps of berries it looked like a Christmas tree decorated in my yard. Everyone commented on it. I also fertilized all of the potted plants as well as the plants that are planted in the ground. Also, hoed my little garden to get it weeded and fertilized it too. Some of the green beans I planted did not come up, so I replanted them too. My tomatoes are doing REALLY well. My squash plants are up and starting to grow. They will grow so fast.... I don't have much space for my garden this year, but plant to make it a little larger next year.

Remember to track your food, eat healthy, drink your water, and get some exercise.

    I worked in my gardens for 4 hours Monday morning and then again 2 in the afternoon. I only wish I could do that about everyday instead of holiday's. My veggie garden is quite small as well. Next year I hope to triple the size.

    Wow, Nancy, you're busy, busy, busy in your garden. Your vegetable garden sounds wonderful. I hope you didn't have the heat like we did today. It's 7 p.m. and we're still at 95 degrees. Take care and make sure you're drinking plenty of water while you're outside.
