I’ve found a surprising amount of peace as we stay-at-home, spending most days out in the garden.
I had a pallet of topsoil, mulch, and stone dropped in the lot yesterday, so I could move forward with the plan to expand the garden and grow as much food as possible this year.
With topsoil now on site, I planted the containers on the wall with vines to grow up and over the new arbor, adding a good amount of our homemade compost. Eventually, I have to find bigger containers, but these were deliverable and on current budget.
Some mulching started as well, with much more happening soon. In the side yard near the house, I’ve taken to altering between brown pine mulch and pea gravel to visual push out the terracing levels. I’m quite taken with the result.
Also, the perrenials are waking up. The Asiatic lilies are popping up and filling out everywhere, including the brand new ones that I’ll need to move already to make better space for food…
