Weekend o' Gardening
So I know I just posted about veggie planting but this past weekend we decided to focus on the front yard since things were getting a little out of hand. (Plus we might have another open house soon) Anyway, long story short, you’re getting a gardening blog. :)
One of the trees in our front garden area was too Christmas-y (I think it’s a juniper or something) so we pulled that out and went shopping to Home Depot for some new plants.
We found some new Japanese maples at Home Depot. (I’m in that photo somewhere.) We barely fit them in the jeep and then came home and planted them the next evening. Our rosemary was taking over everything so I trimmed those down as I raced the clock against the sprinklers. They were set to go off at 9:15 but I finished just in time so I stayed dry. :) Phew!
And, poor Jon, he finally had a beautiful red tomato almost ripe for pickin’ and a bird came in and had a tomato feast by the end of the day. :( Here it is after being feasted upon.
Yikes! I guess it’s better than the salmonella stuff going on.
Here’s the before and afters:
Minor changes but we think it’s looking better. :)
Please keep our house sale in your prayers. We have a family that’s interested and we wouldn’t have to pay any realtor fees. It’s been a really cool way that God has orchestrated it and we hope it continues with a sale, Lord willing. :)
Hope everyone’s doing good!
