I thought I'd start a new thread that can be continuously updated by everyone any day of the year. We have people on the forum from all around the world, so there is always somebody doing something with their garden. I think it would be nice to check in and see what our members have done. So whether you've been busy today or busy three months from today, here's the question... What did you do in your garden today?


I spent today preparing my vegetable garden. I had tons of weeds to pull. There's some kind of invasive grass that pops up in there, along with creeping charlie, so I pulled as much as I could find. I can start planting in about four weeks, so it's nice to have it all ready for the season! If I remember right, peas seeds can be planted before the average last frost date, so I might plant them soon. As some of you may know, growing fruits and vegetables is only a small hobby for me. I'm not into it as much as other forum members. I grow peas for my pond fish, as well as couple of tomato plants, pumpkins for decoration, strawberries, a blueberry bush, and a peach tree. I'm also trying lettuce this year. Tomorrow, I may add a few native plants to the outside edges of my vegetable garden so it looks a little more showy throughout the season.

My flowers that I planted a couple weeks ago sprouted. My Nasturtiums especially! They look so big now. Took these only last night, but they grew even more today! Also, kitties wanted to say hi!!

Another nice day, another day in the garden. Like I said yesterday, I planted some native plants around the outer edge of my vegetable garden. I also transplanted violets from my yard into my native garden in hopes of attracting more Great spangled fritillaries. On top of that, i also added two shrubs to the front of the house.Thuja occidentalis 'Hetzi Midget'. They look nice. I'm interested to see how they grow.

Last year, I added two trees, Thuja occidentalis 'Emerald Green' and they both died mid-summer. Never figured out why.

I planted the last two cherry tomatoes that we started--didn't really need them but I can't waste a plant! Also put the cages around the peppers (our bunnies just love pepper leaves) and planted two containers with basil. One will go to a friend, and the other to anyone who will take it!
I tried to plant zinnia seed, but the wind came up and rather than having zinnias hither and yon, I decided to wait for a calmer day.

You do know that capitals is considered shouting in internet speak?
Good, proper understanding of communication is the key to success.

Well, I finally dragged the deck rocker out of the Gazebo hibernation up to the deck steps. poured me a glass of wine, sat in the rocker and looked through my garden mag.

Meanwhile, I am watching husband spray the weeds in the lawn. Someone has to be a SUPERVISOR.

Maybe her caps lock was stuck :LOL::ROFLMAO::giggle:
Or maybe she is just REALLY mad about the fact that she did nothing in the garden:ROFLMAO:
I never get mad about deciding not to do something. It will be there tomorrow waiting for me. TOMORROW, TOMORROW TOMORROW, ONLY A DAY AWAY. Oh, dam, Monday is tomorrow, got to go to work. well then no gardening tomorrow.

I moved some plants around today. Not too much, but I had a few out in the native garden that I wanted over by my pond. I was thrilled to see that a Black-capped Chickadee is building a nest in one of my birdhouses, and it looks like a pair of Tree Swallows were interested in another.
