Happenings of the Week in Shirley's World
This picture really doesn't show much but I had my gardens mulched plus they put fabric down underneath to try to fend off those awful thistles I've been fighting!
My poppies popped!! I love that. One evening they are a fuzzy ball and the next morning
Russ, the really nice man I sold my rototiller to, came on Thursday and rototilled my vegetable garden for me. He wouldn't take a dime either!! Can't beat that. I had blueberry muffins in the oven and I would've loved to give him some but he left too early!
I planted some of my regular thing, like carrots, beans, lettuces, swiss chard, cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash and acorn squash. What's with me and squash! I only planted one plant of each though, so people don't have to run and hide when I come bearing zucchini for the 20th time!! Now this year I also planted two things I've never tried, Pumpkins and Watermelon.
They take up a lot of room but I thought it would be fun to try them.
Had to clear out the bluebird house. These eggs didn't hatch and the parents haven't been around for a week. It's been a month since they were laid so they weren't going to hatch. I put them in a little nest on my mantle. Cherished little things.
Ferns on the porches always means summer!! Yippee!!!!Have a great week.
Happy Memorial Day.
