more planting!

I can't believe it but we've been planting even more! And I forgot to mention the trees we planted!

Ok first - we built and planted 2 boxes and the swing side of garden #1, it covers the whole width of it. One box is all herbs and the other is for radishes, turnips, and carrots (which we still need to plant). The herbs we chose were - a volunteer chive, 3 yr old sage (still going strong!), basil, lemon balm, thyme, lavender, mint, and rosemary.

Then up on the side of the house we started our very own orchard or mini trees. I'm so excited about these! We have 2 sweet bing cherries and Jonathan & McIntosh apple trees. I really hope these work and we have fruit soon! Though I know it'll probably be a year at least =(

And around the back deck/porch we planted 6 winter gem boxwoods. In the front yard we planted an aristocrat pear tree that we bought last year. Then we hacked and hopefully fixed a badly overgrown hibiscus bush. If it doesn't fix it then we'll have to replace it. Also the very back corner of the lot we had to chop on a old arborvitae, I really hope it lives.

still have a few more things to plant here and there and there's a ton of flowers to move around to new places. work, work, work!  love it! =)
