First off wanted to show you guys the four new chicks, yes I know I was only going to get five. But you see when I was back at Attwoods they had bantams and well they were so cute. Only four followed me home!
So ok we will have 9 chickens not 5 :O)
No really. I got the grapevines for 50 cents a piece. My best bud summed it up well, when you find plants at megga bargains its like finding a treasure! Its just so great!
These guys will be going around our new garden we are tilling up this next week end if the weather holds and we do not get any more rain! I want to put daffodils allll the way around it like a border. I told you guys we are going to try a garden in the ground using wire buried in a trench and I am going to put daffodils too. We are starting to feel brave and have discussed maybe this year just trying it with just the daffodils around the whole thing and see what happens... It not like they killed every single thing in my garden before. We know not to plant certain things in it like don't put a squash vine that your crop is tied to one root in the ground because then if they get that plant you lost allll that squash crop.. I think we will go with plants that are individual so if they get one say tomato that leaves us many more of that tomato.. Like I say we are not sure but we are thinking maybe just try it.. the wire buried in 2 foot deep trench around the whole garden would work for sure but if we didn't have to do that.. man would that be nice. Okay so below the Tete Tete Daffodils I got.
Then scrubbed down the sides and door and window while I was at it .I forgot to get a shot of the outside LOL oh well.. I have steadily been filling it up with seedlings.
Then on top of that I mowed for a few hours this morning, yes hours. We have sandy soil so even with the incredible amount of rain we have had I was able to mow quite a bit. I like to use our push mower with bagger. I dump the clippings and leaves around shrubs as mulch. Like below, this is a Texas Lilac and I have got it mulched good now for spring. As spring and summer go I keep mowing and keep dumping the clippings on anything I can.
