Planting a garden
It has finally gotten warm enough to plant a garden. I planted my salad greens and spinach yesterday. Today I am going to plant tomatoes and beets. I found a tip to soak the beet seeds over night for 12 hours before planting. It makes them come up better. After finishing the brick patio the fun part starts. I get to plant flowers around it. I bought three rose bushes and planted two of them in the courtyard and one next to the fence in the front yard. It is a runner called New Dawn. I thought it would be pretty to train it on the fence like the one we had by the mail box. The New Dawn is a repeat bloomer which will bloom all summer. I’m waiting to see if the Irises bloom this year. They should bloom at the same time as the roses.
