Finally today we had a return to sunshine and warmer temperatures so I went out to play in the garden. I started by planting one Early Girl and one Sweet Cherry in pots to see how they fare compared to those I will put in my garden plots. The shiny DVDs are an attempt to keep squirrels from digging and directing more sun onto the plant so I will have home grown tomatoes tomorrow. worth a try
I'm still patting myself on the back after figuring out that water gun sticks from the dollar store are the perfect posts (cheap yet bright) to help keep the electrical cord out of the garden when cutting around my mid lawn tomato patch.
I put the cages in to check for spacing but so far I've only planted marigolds. Do they really keep bugs away?
If the nice weather continues I'll be out tomorrow cutting the grass, trimming the hedge and checking to see how many more Iris have opened.
