Sunday was a good day to hit the stores and get our groceries (boring) and pickup some additional soil for our planter. Fred Meyer has 2 cu ft bags on sale for 1/2 the price of Walmart’s so they won the contract. 🙂 8 cu ft later our planter was full (after Peggy pulled all the weeds) and Peg had all the plants planted — including some bulbs we got from a local resident.
We weren’t as warm on Sunday as we had been on Saturday. In Eugene it had been 70° with college students sunning themselves at cafe tables wearing shorts. But it was a nice enough day anyway.
I’m not sure whether we’ll get any of the cabbage or lettuce we planted — and we’re looking for more plants for the remaining 1/3 of our garden. But the season is early and Peg is wanting TOMATOES! I suspect it’s a bit early for tomato plants — even in this mild climate!
There is room for more plants and planters. We want to be a bit careful about putting things in place that the F.S. may not want, or that a future volunteer might have to remove. I found this concrete water valve box on the boneyard pile. I’ll see about putting that to use as a planter. Not sure if it will live at the end of our little fence… I would be nice if I had two of them — one for either side of the opening — one alone looks odd — no balance. And I don’t want water draining on the wood decking. So, we’ll see how we end up using it.
Peg was looking at rosebushes at the nursery! Oh ohhhhhh. She’s always been more about flowers than veggies.
