We've finally had some decent weather on my day off and were able to get into the garden and finish a lot of the clean up. Sadly, three of the five roses in our moongarden died this winter and it will take a full day to take them out. That will have to wait for another day off. I've asked around and it seems other people lost roses this winter also.
Happier news is that Kim and I are getting some extra use from our cold frame. We've been using it for years to house our new perennials and to sun our tender annuals. But we've never planted in it directly.
Here it is after Kim cleaned it all out. (After he built his shed.)
Then he put in some beds.
Now we have lettuce, chard, radishes and carrots growing inside.
We're newbies at this so we know there will be a learning curve involved but it's nice to put this space to some use.
And finally, a headless chicken?
No, just Jelly Bean enjoying one of the compost piles.
