There’s also heritage cucumber and broccoli sprouts.
Then we cheated and went to a local greenhouse and bought some tomatoes. Richard got these Wall-O-Waters for a great price at a thrift sale last summer, and put them up last weekend to protect them against frost and promote growth. You just prop them up around the plant and fill them with water. A veritable wall o’ water.
Did you see up in the first picture that blue bin with holes in it? It’s a compost bin. We saw a steel garbage can done up this way and sold for $38 while we were out and about last weekend. For $11 and 10 minutes of hole-making, we have a compost bin. It even has holes on the bottom, so stuff can drain out and attract worms up into it. His plan is to have 4 bins of compost, with an empty one for rotation. By the time the compost makes it to the last bin it should be ready for the garden!
Our bleeding hearts are blooming, and I absolutely love them. They’ve been transplanted a couple of times, as we’ve taken them with us where we’ve moved, and are thriving in our shade garden.
Last but certainly not least, I will be getting my honey bee hive within the next two weeks. Their little spot is all ready for them, and FiBear awaits their arrival!
I can’t wait for my little buzzers to arrive…. and I can’t wait to share them with you!
