Sharing the wealth

Monday, May 28, 2018

Some things grow more plentifully than others and I HATE to just dig stuff out and pitch it in the compost - unless it is a weed. I have "volunteers" of horseradish, mint, chives, oregano, gooseberry bushes and catnip. So - I posted it on our neighborhood association Facebook page and I've been finding homes for lots of what is more than I need! I've helped several young neighbors who are putting in first gardens and promised them some iris bulbs later this summer when I thin them. I love finding good homes for these plants.

More hours in the yard pulling weeds and planting flower seeds and watering my new veggies and the grass seed I hope to get going and my new Linden tree I planted in the front yard in late April. The iris are blooming, as is the phlox and my Thimbleberry bush/tree (related to Russian Olive (eleagnus angustifolia)) which has insignificant little yellow flowers that have a lovely smell much like honeysuckle. The lilacs are done and should be pruned now and my xeriscape garden has several square yards of uninvited grass I need to remove and replace with flowers, I need to get my squash seeds in tomorrow - plenty to do to keep me busy and active, but the time vanishes so quickly. How did we get to the end of May already?

    I could use some mint here!!! It goes wonderful with lamb.

    It sounds like you have lots to do in your garden and the good thing it counts as exercise

    I can feel the smile on your face......

    Wish I lived a bit closer, I think I could give a good home to some of your "volunteers" emoticon My irisis are about to pop, but this cool weather has everything in slow motion. emoticon
