Let me update you on my gardening efforts. You can read my first post about gardening here.
As you may recall, here is what my garden looked like:
With the help of my dad and stepmom, we spent the long weekend digging up grass, spreading out 3 yards of soil, building up a garden, creating fencing, etc...
We have a lot of rabbits and squirrels in the neighbourhood, so fencing of some sort was a must. It was just a bit tricky setting up the fencing beside the hedge. R finally decided to go into the hedge (hence the red blur inside the hedge in the photo below).
To avoid flipping out in front of my parents, R took some alone time after his hedge adventures.
Here's the product (so far)!
We also planted some vegetables and herbs in planters. This first planter contains Greek oregano, basil and curled parsley.
These planters contain plum and baby tomatoes
The weekend after, we bought a couple of heirloom tomato plants from the Kanata Horticultural Society. Apparently there are still some plants left if anyone is interested. We got one indeterminate and one determinate.
The indeterminate is already starting to produce fruit (I'll post updated pictures in a future post).
Here's the determinate:
I'll leave you with some pictures of flowers. Here's a flower from my clematis.
Here's one of my peonies flowering. The pedals have since made a huge mess -- I'm going to move them out of the garden area once the season is over.
