In my last gardening post, I had promised to put up more pictures at some point to show how things were progressing with the garden. And so here is the progress report. Today was a gorgeous (but hot) summer day and I was out in the yard doing some work, so I thought I would take some pictures for another blog post.
So far almost everything has not only survived, but is thriving.
Our deck is also starting to look like a proper recreational space. On the left in the above photo is my smoker, which needs a new cover, I think. Note also our dachshund garden statue and our Red Sox garden gnome.
Today I also replanted some of our flowers into bigger pots, in the hope that they will bounce back and thrive in the large spaces. As we make more sunny spaces (going to depend on removing a lot of branches and trees in the back), I may try to plant a few more things.
Not shown in this round of photos: carrots; spinach; and pumpkins. All of those are planted in the raised bed down in the yard and so far seem to be doing ok despite the shade.
Our little house in Winthrop is becoming more like a home all the time and we love it, as we love our little Mayberry town by the sea.
More happy summer posts to follow!
