Planting Day

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

I have been waiting for this day for several weeks-when the pansies arrive at the garden center and the temperatures get cool enough that they will do well in the gardens.
I went this morning and bought 9 flats each holding 18 plants of pansies! Then when I got home a little before noon I went looking for help to plant. Well, I was in hopes of getting at least 4 more helpers but had to settle for 2. We worked for nearly 3 hours planting and weeding and trimming but the gardens are coming together for our winter planting.
Next week I will go and get another bunch and we will all get together and finish the planting and then I will post new pictures of the gardens.
I know this isn't exactly exercise but it sure worked the back muscles and did a lot of walking back and forth getting plants and hauling out the weeds and trimming. The weather was just beautiful too.
I hope all of you have a little sunshine in you life this week and can get out and smell the "roses" or in this case, pansies!

    Three hours? You bet that has to count. Know your garden will be lovely. It sounds like you enjoy your garden work and that is why it doesn't seem like exercise.
