Before Anastasia was born, I began trying to improve the landscaping in the backyard. I dug a border for the stones around the side of the house and tried to elevate, level and compact the back walk.
I also got the vegetable and fruit garden planted.
|Cecilia's bed has the blueberry bush, grape plant, raspberry bush, garlic (coming up around the fluffy carrot), and strawberry plants. The only one not doing well is the raspberry bush - that one we may have to replace.|
|Felicity's plot has its bushy carrot from last year, some sprouts of lettuce and quite a few new carrots coming up. The only trouble is the back row of tomatoes that have yet to spring up. If they don't, we may just plant a few tomato plants.|
|Elizabeth has two back rows of corn, 3 squash plants, and about 8 or 10 potato plants all doing very well.|
|Teresa's has a back row of 4 cucumber plants, a middle row of 3 cherry tomato plants and two front rows of lettuce all doing very well.|
|Brigi'd has several carrots from last year doing well as well as 3 or 4 broccoli plants in the middle row up and some sprouted onions in the front. The row of peppers in the back just began to peek through!|
|Thomas' has one carrot from last year, 3 pumpkin plants and I think one cantaloup plant coming up. I'm not sure if there are any watermelon sprouts yet, but we will keep a look out.|
