I feel like I can finally see the outline of what my garden will be this summer. I’m finally figuring out where the last planter beds will go, and we dropped most of them into the ground this week. It is amazing how much time it takes to do that (with the post hole digging and the leveling and then filling in between the planter beds so the ground is sloped nicely.) We also started on the first of our cold frames this weekend. We got the frame built (but not the lid) and we even managed to get it in the ground. It was quite a feat considering how heavy it was and the size hole we had to dig to get it in. But I am absolutely thrilled with how it looks and I can’t wait to see how awesome it will be when I get to plant things in it BEFORE the last frost date!
Here is a look at the garden as of this morning! You can see how much nicer it looks with the planters in the ground compared to before (Click here for my first garden blog with the planters on top of the ground!) In the photo on the left you can see the two planters that still haven’t been set in the ground. The one on the right is going to be moved (you get to see that later) and the one on the left (all the way back by the shed) can’t go into the ground right now because there is a stump in the way. So we have to wait for the stump to rot before we can place that one. The photo on the right is my new cold frame. It is so pretty 🙂
