Raised Garden Bed

I had oringally planted some tulips I purchased on clearance ... I don't think they made it so no we have two raised garden beds. So far only the wooden square is in place.

Plan to plant a variety of salad greens :) Ignore the potted plant it was just an example.

Plum Trees



SO... last year in the fall Walmart was selling these pathetically dry looking plum trees for only $10 each.
Even though they were half dead and we were in the middle of a severe drought in Kansas, we thought it was too good a deal to pass up.
That same day we followed the instructions on the tags and planted the first of our orchard trees.  As the fall continued to be dry and hot we had to be really diligent in watering the trees.
And low and behold both trees made it through and are now springing back to life.
...The only problem now is that we lost the little identification tags and have no clue what type of plums we bought.
* LOL*

On the next post we will show our progress on the vegetable garden we are growing this year.

Dead Tree Removal

We started the cutting down of the two dead pine trees in our front yard. but alas our ladder is not tall enough and we will need to rent a lift to finish the tree.
