What to do with a beautiful spring day in Berryville? Get out into the dirt.
It’s starting to get warm and I’m ready to be outside. We got out into the yard this weekend and started the spring clean-up and planting. The yard needed to be thatched and re-seeded in a couple of places, so Jonathan and I took care of that. I also had some planting to do, including getting some summer blooming bulbs into the ground – ranunculus, freesias and twinkle toes. All three should add a nice pop of color to the flower bed we rehabilitated last fall. I also got to spend some time in the greenhouse to get seeds started for the vegetable garden. I got tomatoes, peppers, cantaloupe, and a handful of herbs planted. I can’t wait for the little seedlings to sprout! From the moment I plant the seeds I anxiously look forward to harvest day! Yes, I know all about that saying about not counting your chickens before they hatch, but gardeners are hopeful people. Every plant will live and produce copious amounts of fruit! And when they don’t, well there’s always next year.
Jonathan spent some more time working on our DIY projects as well. He got our new floor mirror framed out, but we decided that rather than just sit on the floor, it would be nice to have a stand for it too. So, he went through our miscellaneous lumber yet again and broke out the trusty table saw to make a very cool crate/stand. Pretty soon I’ll be able to post a photo of the finished product!
Spring is a beautiful and busy time for us! Look for more updates soon!
