“He is happiest who finds peace in his home.”
My new raised bed biointensive garden is planted at last. I have been eagerly awaiting the May long weekend as the traditional “safe from frost” time. We could of course still have frost seeing as we live in the northern part of BC but it is not as likely. The way the beds are made it would be easy to put stakes in at the four corners and cover the plants overnight if the forecast shows minus temperatures.
Right now the weather is just right for freshly planted seeds and seedlings. It is cloudy and raining lightly…a good start. The next couple of days are for some sun and cloud…perfect.
We’ve got zucchini, asparagus, beans, cucumbers, potatoes, carrots, beets, onions, lettuce, peas, radishes and turnips all in the raised beds. I can hardly wait for them to grow! But right now I am exhausted from all that fresh air.
I even got the window boxes planted with flowers. The leaves on the trees are sprouted out fully and a bright cheery green…now it really does look like spring in the Cariboo.
I made a start on revamping my circular flower bed. It is 40 feet in circumference and it took me an entire week to dig out the ingrown grass and weeds. The lupines and irises were the only plants that I saved from my former delightful wild flower garden. Right now it is just a gaping scar in the lawn but maybe in another week I’ll have a Shasta daisy bed in place that will withstand the encroaching weeds and grasses.
Today’s “stone” is Day 142 rocks and more rocks, soon some daisies, grow babies grow
