I cut any blooms, and the ones that were budding. Then I transplanted the rest into my garden.
I cut these last Tuesday and they are still gorgeous! I've changed the water twice and re-cut them once.
My mother-in-law thought she needed to take my picture so I can actually put a picture of me on the blog.
Here I am transplanting some tulips, they used to be over in a weedy part of the woods. I think they will be happier here.
Squinting from the sun...See I told you I am SUPER HAPPY to be in the DIRT!
Another project in the garden this past week....
I had this cute idea that I saw on Pinterest to mark my rows, but after running it by the Hubby he made a couple of good points so I decided to mark my rows by simply using rocks and a permanent marker. Nothing fancy, but I wanted something to mark them until the plants came up.
I planted THREE rows of carrots, ONE row each of Romaine Lettuce, Spinach, & Mini- Head Lettuce.
Then this past weekend we had the excitement of plowing up our main veggie garden/ butterfly garden.
We borrowed my father-in-law's tractor and 2-bottom plow to make this an easy job.
Here we are part of the way done....
Here is a view from the second story of our house. Do you think it will be big enough?
Since I was up there, here is a shot of our fruit/cutting (flower) garden. We have purchased adorable red cedar picket fence to go around this garden, and I'm excited to get it up. (It's on the "list"!)
I think that pretty much catches up all up on what we are doing here at The Gaertegang Homestead. I hope you have been enjoying all this dreamy weather doing something you love.
I'm linking this week to Homestead Revival.
