tisiphone: (personal blogging)
This weekend I've been left alone, and I plan to put the time to good use by mucking around in the garden. I have many, many plans :) The existing plants need some maintenance, and some of my herbs didn't really make it through the winter, they'll need to be taken out. I'm going to plant a bit of scented garden around the side, and I've got some wildflower matting. I've got some new herbs to go in. This year I'm tending more toward the edibles rather than the medicinals, with several varieties of thyme and some garlic and ginger. I've also got some fruit to go in. I'm going to use the bits of space around the apple trees and raised beds to put in some currant bushes (red and white, which will stand up straight), some gooseberries, and some cranberries for ground cover. That, plus some extensive weeding and so on, is likely to take up most of the weekend, alas.

Three cheers for gardening!

Well, I can cheer anyway. I'm crap at gardening, myself. I'm hoping that once he's home, my other half can do something with the yard.

I just kill plants, make a mess, and get poison ivy.

I'm a bit hit and miss with it myself, but I've gotten much better after I learned to wear gloves and got over being afraid of worms.
