Week 14 of 52 – Mavis’ Backyard Garden Plot
This past week was a gorgeous one here in the Pacific Northwest. Sunny skies and temps in the low 60’s made hanging out in the backyard lot’s of fun. As you can see the garden beds finally look like they have something planted in them and pretty soon it will look like a proper vegetable garden.
The potting bench is a live with color and if you look closely at the first watering can that’s hanging on the fence, you’ll see some tulip leaves growing out of the top. I totally forgot I planted a few bulbs in there last fall.
I know it’s hard to believe, but when Lucy the puggle dog sees me pull out the camera, she strikes a pose. It’s the strangest thing ever. I’d say a photo shoot for Dog Fancy might be in her future.
Check out them peas! Wahoooo! Now, if I could just keep Lucy away from them.
I was having a wee bit of a problem with Lucy “inspecting” all the seedling flats on the greenhouse floor so I had the Handsome Husband haul another folding table out to the greenhouse last night.
My plan for today is to get everything off the ground because ideally, I’d like little Miss Lucy to be able to walk in the greenhouse and hang out with me when I’m in there.

Poor Lucy, the chickens are still not ready to be friends.
Future pumpkin patch.
The raspberry patch is finally coming alive. I noticed a few bare patches and new growth popping up in the paths yesterday. Hopefully I’ll be able to get out there this week and transplant a few.

And finally some progress on the container herb garden. Yee- Haw! We now have oregano, sage, rosemary and parsley planted. As soon as the thyme is ready to set out I will plant it. I think I’ll keep the basil in the greenhouse again this year because it thrived in the hotter temperatures.
If I had to guess, this week is going to be crazy. The forecast looks awesome for the next four days. Wahooooo. Now we’re farming!
Peace Out Girl Scouts, have a great day and remember to have some fun.
