My mom enjoys gardening and has been given, basically, free reign over our garden plans. Jeff has interest, I want results, but neither of us have the time to really put into it. Too bad my mom can't live with us... or close by... she could be gardening and cleaning and playing with my kids all the live-long day! She came and helped out with the kids while I was out of town last week. This gave Jeff the time to get some outside work done- like building our raised bed for our veggie garden. My mom came back through town on Saturday and planted, with Teagan's help, tomato plants, cucumber seeds, squash seeds, and a variety of flowers around the house (shasta daisies, columbine). I also have instructions to follow in regards to some vine type plants that attract hummingbirds that we are going to plant below the deck. We then hang twine from above and these plants will creep their way up and we will have a hummingbird hang out! Oh- I also have to transplant to obedient plants. I still have 2 rose bushes to plant this week, too. Just need to figure out where they should go.
