Mother’s Day weekend And gardening

Every year on Mother’s Day I think of how lucky I am to still have my mom. She was diagnosed with stage 4 inoperable oral cancer 13 years ago. She has had a lot of complications, but I still have her. That’s my favorite part of Mother’s Day. Abd that’s a pretty great reason to celebrate!

This year at school we planted some marigold flowers and made some seed paper from reused office paper. And we reused juice cups!

I hope that their Mom’s loved them! 

My sweet husband picked me out a nice gift. (Yes, he spent money during our no spend year. But, it will all be used in the pollinator garden area!)

I love this sign!

We spent this afternoon cutting down bamboo at a friend’s house to use on the trellis system that we are going to be constructing along the fence.

This stuff is very invasive! I would not recommend growing it! 

We also got the other garden gate installed! I love the way that it looks! We just need to put fence around it the rest of the way.

Second garden fence! 

Oh, and I forgot to say that the Mr. managed to till the garden in between rain storms too!

We are continually working on building up our soil! 

And in the greenhouse we have some little seedlings making an appearance!

Apple melons, cucumbers and zucchini! 

The peppers and tomatoes made the big move into the greenhouse this weekend. They also got repotted to give them more space to grow.

It’s a tomato jungle in there!

This whole weekend was pretty great! We can’t put any plants out in the ground until the end of the month, so I’m hoping to give our plants a head start in the greenhouse! I hope that you all are gearing up for another growing season!
