I finally had a chance to complete the new section of my garden. The weather was nice and cool, a great day to work in the garden.
Lee helped me with her rose garden, we also moved her strawberry plants as well. She still has flowers to plant, we’ll try to tackle that in the next few weeks or so.
She has been a great help, can’t you tell?
My new project was to build a grape and blueberry trellis. This is my first time, and it’s not as difficult as I thought. I buried the posts about 2 feet deep, and cemented the posts several days back. It’s very sturdy and should be able to support the grape plants.
These work wonder, the wire is very strong, I had a hard time cutting it.
I’m not sure how this work, it is a tension device that helps tighten the wire.
My blueberry plant was given to me as a gift, thank you, as you can see that it’s beautiful. I’m hoping that it’s like a grape plant where fruit doesn’t need a pollinator.
I bought 4 grape plants, the purple seedless kind, and I know it’s too many for my small area, just in case one die.
I bought a Basil seed pack while I was in Lowes, I planted these in my new raised bed.
My mint is doing well, they stayed dormant during the cold winter months.
I planted small roman lettuce plants, and some gourmet mesclun salad Asian baby leaf seedlings.
After these get harvested, then it would be time to plant the chili peppers, Thai eggplants, string beans, cucumbers, and tomatoes.
