It looks like we will finally be getting some zucchini soon – I noticed the flowers this morning!
We bought this container so that we could plant some veggies. A first for us, so I had my fingers crossed and was really hoping that it would work! We planted 3 rows. A row of carrots, a row of zucchini, and a row of cucumbers. Well, the carrots didn’t make it. I’m not sure why….and the cucumber is coming along – although only 2 of them are growing. Better than nothing, right?
Our Butterfly Island is completely done now. What a project! It was a lot of fun.
I had some help with this project. My hubby and his parents. His mom went with me to do the shopping and helped me plant the flowers. My hubby and his dad did the digging so that the butterfly island would be level. (Our yard has a slight slope to it, that you really can’t see just by looking at it. But when laying the garden block out, you could tell.)
I am really excited and anxious for warmer weather to arrive here in North Dakota. Sometimes it comes early, sometimes just a little bit later than we want. I love gardening. Every spring I look forward to getting outdoors and planting flowers, shrubs, and doing various outdoor projects. I love to be outside and love to keep busy! Last year I planted two apple trees, along with maintaining the plants that were planted the year before. This year, I want to add more flowers and shrubbery, and try my hand at growing veggies too. Growing vegetables will be a first for me. 😉
I am so ready for our bright & sunny back yard to have some shade, and beautiful plants. Because we moved into a new neighborhood 5 1/2 years ago, there were NO TREES. I am a tree person, so I really didn’t (still don’t) like that at all. Can you believe after 5 1/2 years we’ve only planted one tree, and that was a tree that was paid for by the city to go out near the sidewalk. (Between the sidewalk & the street). What have we been waiting for? Well, when we moved in, we had other projects going on…like finishing our basement. Then there was building a new deck, and after that, getting a fence for our back yard. All of those things cost $$$ (and are time consuming)! So now, I guess I am just really tired of having no trees…LOL. We have some plants and shrubs out front, but the backyard is untouched.
Here are my plans. It’s starting off with our deck area.
