It is still "a little" too early to begin planting in my area, so I cleaned up the plant beds and containers. It felt good to get my hands in the soil again.

We had some re-turfing done last year, but it looks like some of the grass around a tree isn't doing too well - so I've given it a good seaweed feed to see if that improves things. Hopefully it will do a little better and thicken up once the warmer weather arrives - fingers crossed.

Also fed the rest of the plants with some Vitax Q4 and gave it a good water. :)

I have been working all day in the garden. There seems to b e a pest attack of sort in the area and I have been wary. I have been misting my plants, giving them a dunking in water and cleaning out all the dead leaves from around the roots.
I did find one plant that needed attention. I think I was on time and my efforts could have saved the plant :)

Weeding! It's been the hottest day so far this year and the weeds are springing up everywhere - especially dandelions. I also planted out some tomato plants, but keeping them under plastic bottles for a while as there's still a chance of frost here.

I felt lazy today and did not do anything in the garden. I just sat there and had my afternoon snack there. I listened to the birds chirping and the fresh-looking plants that surrounded me made me feel relaxed. It is and will always be my favorite spot in the house. Never fails to bring me calmness and serenity. Just what I need after a long and tiring day.

Being our weather has been unpredictable here and they say that we are not safe from the threat of frost until May 15th, I haven't really planted much yet. I do have my perennials that bloomed and otherwise I have been weeding and getting it ready so I have less weeding to do when the time comes to plant. I will probably start to plant in the beginning of May, I don't think I have ever actually waited until May 15th here.

We just have a small garden area, but we did get it all planted, and now it seems like we just keep on getting rainy days. The grass is growing faster than we can keep it mowed. We mow, it rains, grass grows, it rains, dries out, we mow, and so on.
Today, if it dries up enough, I have some plants to get into the ground while the dirt is soft, and then maybe I will get out with the weedeater for a bit also.
The lettuce and greens are up and growing, so now that the weather is getting warmer, maybe the squash and cucumbers will start coming up also. It keeps us busy trying to get it all done, for sure !

We had a nice sunny day yesterday. I put the gazebo canopy back on, which provides a nice shady area on the patio.

I had classes so I didn't have enough time to work in the garden today...but I washed my miniature roses - I fight with some nasty fungus - and I watered them, I love doing it, it always relaxes me. Oh, and I counted the buds - I found 17:D

Had to shoo my 3-year-old out of it to keep him from stepping on the tomato plants. We were just able to plant them due to it snowing the start of MAY here!!!!

Today in my garden I was checking up on my plants and watering them. I also trimmed a little bit. :)

I just have a balcony's worth of plants, not a big garden, so I just trimmed the insect-eaten leaves from my basil plant and wondered again what to spray on it to keep pests from eating it. I saw plant insecticides at Walmart but they would make the basil toxic for eating.

Watered my blueberries; I have quite a lot of flowers/buds on one bush, I think I'm going to have a bumper crop!
