Some gardening in April

Wednesday, April 21, 2021

This is the first time this bent willow chair has been outside since I took a course and built it myself. The pre-Covid course lasted all day and the instructor supplied the materials, tools, and expertise. It was fun and I hope to do it again! I am very happy with how the new patio turned out and it suits the small water feature and garden quite nicely.

The black compost bins hold grass clippings. The palettes are where the horse manure, leaves from last year, and grass clipping are layered. The little area around the metal frame has been seeded with Sweet Peas.

The area around this metal frame has been prepared for scarlet runner beans. Blueberry shrubs, and a climbing wall in the background.

I have four 4X4 plastic raised beds. Garlic fills the first, strawberries in the second, bush beans (more beets and lettuce in two weeks) in the third, and beets, parsley, and broccoli in the fourth one.

Raspberry patch that I will most likely remove in the fall.

Some lettuce plants outside the greenhouse and tomatoes inside.
Other assorted plants are growing patiently in pots while I get areas ready for them in the ornamental garden beds.
