March 3, 2011

Very busy week in the garden. Some warm days, some wet days.  Must be spring.  The large vegetable area was tilled and the rebar from the old raised beds was wrestled from the ground.  Plans are being made to add compost to the new garden.  Also, a plan for this bed is being drawn up with the help of  garden planning software found on a gardening magazine website.  Free for 30 days!

No more rebar

2  Jewel Black Raspberry plants, 1 Blue Crop Blueberry, 1 Berkeley Blueberry and a Gold Rush apple tree were  given to the garden this week.

In the native hedgerow, Witch Hazel is in bloom.  It has a wonderful, clean, medicinal odor.
