Got to be brief as I am about the leave for work. At the crack of daybreak, I headed outside. All the plants in the hoophouse were moved out and the structure was taken down. It's laying in the basement right now, but I'll put it up for storage in the joists later this evening.
The tomatoes are looking good. Planted out some more indoor grown plants and got a load of leaf mulch from the landfill. Seedlings are filling out too. Now for the pictures.
Pink Knockout Rose I picked up yesterday. The benefits of unloading trucks are unimaginable.
More wintersown containers to empty.
More cuttings and seedlings to plant out.
Pineapple sage along the driveway bed.
The driveway bed is done. Bamboo will become teepee trellises.
Blue Spires Salvia rooted from overwintered cuttings planted in the front bed.
Lantana in the front bed on the slope.
Wintersown Artemesia planted in the same bed.
Look at those roots.
Leaf mulch where the hoophouse was.
Good black stuff. I'll till it in tomorrow.
Peas are up and growing.
The White Bed is done too.
That's all I got done this morning. Another hour and I would have gotten wood mulch for the driveway bed. The landfill is closed Saturday because of Easter, so I hope to have some time next week to get that done. Off to work now for a very long day. 22 racks of flowers and assorted plants should be delivered before 4pm.
1:56pm - lunchtime. 64 degrees and light rain. Thunderstorms are in the forecast. It should taper off this evening and move out by morning. The garden center is jumping today. Half the store is out there working. It's our busiest weekend all year.
