Since we last tuned in, picked up a bunch of glads... all potted up in litter buckets except the last one.
15 White Alaska
15 Sun Kissed
10 Wine and Roses
10 Vista Lavender
10 Bonnes Vacances
Got 2 pairs of hops, Cascade and Nugget- those are in big black buckets.
Got in all the wildflower jugs, and started putting in the marigold jugs- only the marigolds didn't like that too much, lol.
Spent several days chasing to Wi, loading up trucks, then unloading them here. A billion boxes can really kick your ass when they are all going upstairs,heh. Cleaning and sorting and more re-arranging extra kicks your ass. But at least a good third of the total move is done now, by this time next month I will have most of my family here with me :).
So... figured a bunch of pics would be nice.
Front bed left to right is two rows totaling 12 plants of Corno Di Toro peppers , a sweet Italian heirloom, then a row totaling 6 plants of sweet banana peppers, then a row of 3 California peppers.
In the straw is Taylor Dwarf beans. In the back grass section are my 3 Manzanos and the 10 pepperonchini. I took my sisters suggestion and planted the Corno Di Toros, banana peppers, and pepperonchinis in pairs- I just wouldn't have had the space otherwise.
I think this year I at least tripled my growing space between shoveling out the compost pile and setting in growing there, and building these two beds.
Now I'm left with just some cukes and melons to plant in along the narrow walk. I think I really pushed it putting in the Early Russians as small as they were, so I'm holding off on these till they get bigger.
I still have tons and tons of flowers to plant in. But that's for another day, I'm all for being lazy and just doing some puttering cleaning. Putting stuff away in my new buffet we picked up the other day for 40 bucks. It's fucking awesome. I always seem to have the best luck finding cool stuff when my sis is with me. One nice big drawer for linens and servingware over a cabinet with one simple shelf in it. Got any idea how hard it is to find a simple yet totally useful buffet in the right size that isn't a gajillion bucks? Yeah, real difficult, so I'm thrilled at this addition of storage space in the kitchen. And now the dry sink grandpa made is in the kitchen too. Oodles of storage space there too. And both pieces look like they have been there forever, woot!
So.. I'm off to whup up some taters to go into the oven to go with the meatloaf I'm cooking up for dinner :)
