This will be my last post here on my blog…
Really. This is ME we are talking about… RACHEL!?! Quit blogging all together!? Not Likely! But I am taking a break this weekend, and I thought I’d tell you. Here’s some pictures of my “FINISHED” Garden! The one above, is the main garden. I measured it. It’s 40 feet long, and 8 feet wide. That’s 320 square feet of planting, baby!
This is my compost “bin” and a pile a ready to use compost from our local dump. It’s SUCH good stuff, and it was FREE. I took the first pic from right in front of the bin, turned to my left. This is also my bird area. I’m going to plan some flowering vine along the fence near the feeder, so that the birds have some cover. I have two more houses to go along the fence too.
I asked one of the local hairdressers if she would save a day’s worth of cut hair for me. So I’ll have some SWEET nesting goodies to put out for the birds too! The only thing left to do besides plant, is to put up the string on the fence for the vines.
This is the finished Kid’s Garden. If you look very hard, you can see the compost bin in the back corner along the green fence. The sandbox is directly to my left. I bought seed yesterday. Found some fun seeds! I found some radish that is white on the outside, and HOT PINK on the inside! I found bell peppers that are purple, and I bought some yellow beans. We’ll see how things go! I also bought sunflowers in all shapes and sizes, they should be really fun with all the birds. We had a lot of them last summer, so I think we should see them again this year. Especially since I have been enhancing the bird habitat. Still looking for the purple beans, but if i don’t find them, we’ll have fun anyway. So… HOPEFULLY, the next time I post, I’ll be showing you my next Deck of ME card! Emily is in Paris right now, so I don’t know if she will be able to post a prompt for us by Sunday or not.
