It was a beautiful day at Home Farm Today

3/18/12

 

It was a beautiful day today and I had a lot to do on the computer so it was about 10:30 am before I got out to the greenhouse where the thermometer said 110 degrees!  I quickly propped open the door and window and gave everything a much needed drink just in the nick of time.

The Stevia is coming up and the cucumbers are really doing their thing and I would put some out but we are still in mid March and who knows whether we will have a frost again.  I guess I will wait another 2 weeks.

 

I cleaned out some more containers today and I planted some more bulbs. I planted Mixed Single Freesia and De Caen Mixed Anemone and both are mid summer blooming perennials. 

Carl put up 6 hanging planter racks for me in various places in the gardens and Ken brought in the last (hopefully) of the top soil. 

 

We had a lovely shower about 1 pm or so and that was nice for the newly planted containers.

 

The first of the tulips I planted in the old Iris bed are blooming right now.

Another morning at Home Farm

3/17/12

 

It was an overcast day today with rain off and on so I started working at 8 am.  I finished the last little bit of the wild flower garden after putting in 400 pounds of top soil and the rest of the perennial wildflower seeds.  I thinned out the Roma tomatoes, the orange Amana tomatoes and some peppers and have over 40 more pots of plants growing.  I started to move planters and birdbaths outside today and by noon I was pooped.
