A rainy, rainy weekend limited our outside productivity, but we still scratched a few things off the list. Tom FINALLY let me use the tiller and I tore up what was previously the lettuce patch (which never worked). Seeds from Baker's Creek will be ordered this week which will include a variety of mint. That's what we'll plant here.
And it wouldn't be TYs VeggiePatch if we didn't misidentify something growing in our garden. Last year it was the squash/cucumber/watermelon/cantaloupe. So far this year it's the weed/potato. What we thought was potatoes growing in the potato patch was actually weeds. We know that now because a bunch of these guy showed up right on top of each potato mound. So NOW, we really have potatoes growing.
Also in the potato patch is onions and we feel pretty certain these are identified correctly.
Tom dug some deep holes for the berry bushes and mixed in peat moss for good soil nutrition. Got the blackberries in the planted....
(Woops - dog walking in front of camera.)
and the raspberries. The rain started coming down too hard so the blueberries will have to wait until next weekend.
The apple tree is in full bloom now and looks so pretty!
