The weather here in the Pacific Northwest has been crazy good lately, especially for the month of February. So good in fact I had Monkey Boy mow the lawn yesterday. True, a lot of the lawn is currently covered with moss, 😉 but still, having it cut short and all the same length made my little OCD heart happy.
While Monkey Boy was mowing, I was planting. Cascade Delight raspberries to be exact. They produce big, fat, juicy berries and are perfect for making homemade raspberry jam. I will probably only get a handful of berries this summer from the 15 canes I planted, but next year I should have enough for a batch of jam.
I decided to plant the peas in containers this year outside the door. I’ve been using the same trellises I purchased 8 years ago from Lowe’s to grow my peas on every spring, and I’m confident they’ll do fine in containers this year.
I also moved the boxwoods. What do you think? It looks much better now doesn’t it? I just need to buy a tall tree for the corner between the house and the air conditioning unit.
And, because I am a total nerd, I placed 33 small terra cotta pots in the side garden where I’ll be planting cabbage plants once the weather warms up. 🙂 I LOVE the look of formal vegetable gardens with all their vegetables lined up in perfect little rows. My plan is to plant radish seeds in front of the cabbage and lettuce seeds behind it in a few weeks. It will look MAGNIFICENT! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Keep calm and garden on,
