Good Sunday to you

follow your vision

With the coffee grounds to compost
the ground egg shell, oatmeal and bread heals to chicken set off to task am I.

WRONG...I thought it was time
to plant the bulbs, perennials and biannual and those plants that seed above ground this is correct.
boy did I get mixed up!
Oh well! :)
They are now in!
Onion and per/biannual well say a prayer and hope for the best.

The new plot dug out has been tri trenched...
Companion planting...

Chives for the peas...

This is the newest bed on the west side of the shed in the shade of the gazebo

 Sage and chive in the squares around the lettuces
This is the east facing bed

The sage in the squares...
The chive between the bok choy and the lettuce/onion rows
keep aphids away.

the pots were soaked in the dogs pool

the absorption is a better way to moisten the soil.

Lemon balm (tomato on the otherside of the rain barrel love it)
on one side planter.
The trailing rosemary to the left is favored by the brocolli in the raised bed
pollinators are drawn by it.
