Before my sweetheart died, he gave me the best gift I could ever have asked for. It has taken three years to really accomplish it, but I am really working in the raised garden he insisted on having built for me before he died.
This spring I have planned my plants, and where to plant them. I decided to plant strawberries in one corner and blueberries in the far end. I ordered 25 strawberries from Stark Bros. and they arrived yesterday. Today, I planted the strawberries in the garden.
I was happy as I finished. I feel I am saying thank you to him for his effort to make something that would help me for years to come. I am grateful that he loved me enough to have done this. I just wish he were here to play with me in the garden too. Well, I planted one of his shoes with Thyme for a giggle in the garden. He would have had fun with it. "Running out of Thyme?"
This is my entrance, you notice there is a hanging pot of strawberries. I have my flag. The garden is in its infant stage, but I have great hopes for it. My beans have come up, I have planted 5 different kinds to see which gives the best yield. I have 4 bush one package was from Renee's Garden . They are called Tricolor Slenderette Beans. The other is a Blue Lake Bush bean, and a pole bean called Scarlet Runner. They are up and appear to be flourishing. My Holy Basil has peeped up over the edge of the soil, but that is for a different post.
