All Over But the Plantin'
Voila! The giant project I described in my previous post, "True Confessions," is now complete...well, this phase of it, anyway.
The beds are full of compost, the stone paths laid and mulched. Now "all" that's left is planting, and it's still a bit too early for that in Ohio. Soon, though. And now I'm ready!
This new bed will be a mix of perennial flowers and herbs, and edibles (tomatoes, peppers, beets, radishes, etc.). I like the idea of mixing edibles with perennials so that you're not left with a big blank muddy moonscape at the end of the growing season.
I am so happy puttering out there in the garden. It's been good incentive for the writing, actually. I tell myself I can "go out and play" when I hit whatever page limit I've set for myself for the day. I actually stick to it, too.
Ah, good medicine after that long winter...
I'll keep you posted when the plants go in the ground.
