Yesterday was a pretty magical day in the garden. The weather here in the Pacific Northwest has been crazy delicious and the temps were touching 60 degrees yesterday. In February. Imagine that!!
I spent the morning transplanting 75 strawberry plants in the side garden. When I ordered the berry plants last fall I had no idea where I was going to plant them but would you believe, I had the exact amount of strawberry plants I needed for this spot? It was meant to be if you ask me.
I also made the decision to transplant my 9 blueberry plants opposite of the side garden as well. Instead of planting an evergreen shrub there now I’ll have an edible one. Pretty genius if you ask me.
While I was outside working in the side garden I also mapped out a plan. There is so much space available I think I’ll have plenty of room to grow a few rows of vegetables alongside the perennial herbs I’ll be planting. Since the herbs will get taller as the season goes on I think it will work out perfectly.
Do you have moss in your lawn? Gag. This stuff is everywhere, and to be honest, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get rid of it because it seems like practically every lawn in our neighborhood has it.
I’ve decided I’m going to work on pulling out the moss this spring and re-plant the patchy areas with grass seed this summer. If it works, great. If not, I’m just not going to worry about it anymore. I have no desire to pump a bunch of money and chemicals into the lawn every year if the moss is here to stay.
And last but not least, my friend Jenny is planning a road trip to visit me in early April. She does not have a garden and all she wants to do is plant vegetables. Can you believe that? So now all I need to do is build those 4 garden boxes the HOA finally approved and I’ll be ready to put her to work. 😉
Yee-Haw! Spring is on the way!
