I'm trying this again. I guess I took too long last time and it asked me to sign in again...then poof! It was all gone.

I wanted to keep a personal garden record here like Lavender Debs wonderful record (my won't be so cool.)

I'll be going out of order I guess...doing a little at a time so I don't lose it again.

started 2/28 Garden Ramblings 2012 6859013870_461ef7d57c_m

planted sugar snap peas from the feed store Garden Ramblings 2012 7005108215_f75df1a965_m
3/16: Garden Ramblings 2012 6987944915_254a3c33e1_m

What's in the 4x4 veggie bed now:
1 square Picklebush cucumbers planted by Sarah
1 square carrots planted by Sarah
4 Celebrity tomatoes from transplants
4 Romaine lettuce transplants in cinder blocks (Andrew) ate a salad from outside leaves 3/19
4 Red Sails lettuce transplants in cinder blocks (Sarah)
4 Green Leaf lettuce or BSS transplants in cinder blocks (Aimee)
2 Swiss Chard transplants in cinder block
1 flat leaf parsley transplant in cinder block

Blooming in the front beds and pots:

Garden Ramblings 2012 7005156449_26e8431c28_mGarden Ramblings 2012 6859037832_ecb2a089d8_m
Front red rose, white and yellow irises, cyclamen, white viola, purple pansies, new creeping Phlox, Mexican Lavender are all blooming. Planted two new bushes. Sarah planted all kinds of flower seeds in "her bed."

Georgia Belle Peach waits to be planted. Planted and pruned the ebay Fuji apple which looks like it will thrive. Pruned Aimee's apple tree twice, and discovered that the joint was almost covered. I uncovered it, but not enough. Hope my pruning wasn't too severe. There were a few leaves on it. Tom Spellman at Dave Wilson Nurseries on youtube really helped with my understand of Backyard Orchard Culture. More peaches and blueberries hopefully this year.

New compost tumbler which I don't really like. A new bed and Red Wigglers! which I LOVE. I'll do those next.

Made a Blue Barrel (BB) Compost Tumbler Garden Ramblings 2012 6858968286_a1dab734dd_m We need a new trampoline mat Embarassed

Sarah's flower seedlings Garden Ramblings 2012 7002144675_6cd4a9bdc3_m

Free mulch from our tour of the landfill / recycling facility. We got a barrel full of mulch, and we picked up a bunch of free pallets on the way home that I think I'm going to make into a 2 bin compost bin. Garden Ramblings 2012 6844594640_e362131981_m

I added a case of rotten pears, our produce waste to the mulch, some cardboard bits, shredded paper, Garden Ramblings 2012 6991489539_a5606d7d4c_m

Tumbled and left it for a day or so then I dumped it all out and added some molasses, a black trash bag of fresh mown grass, about 10# Starbucks coffee grounds, a box of moth infested cornstarch, egg shells, mixing plenty. Filled BB half full and tumbled. BB is sucking in on the sides, so I'm going to drill more air holes. I think I'm going to go back to the two bin system. The tumbler can be for kitchen waste and shredded paper and make the heavy duty compost in the bins.

Scored some bifold doors from the remodel pile at the street. Dh made me a new bed 6.5'x3.25'x about 9"! I don't have any MM or soil to go in it, so I'm impatient for the compost.

Andrew's lettuce: Garden Ramblings 2012 6841818966_8d0f37cf50_m and the oregano we put in our taco meat: Garden Ramblings 2012 6987897699_159a154435_m

Thanks for the encouragement Kay and Ha-v-v! I've got a sick kiddo and it's really wet back there. I can't wait to get back to it.
