How Does Your Garden Grow?


Planting day!

I spent nearly the whole day outside planting, pruning, laying landscape cloth, etc. For the amount of effort I put in, I wish I had a little bit more to show for it than one single plant in the middle of a bed with a bunch of holes around it, but I guess that’s how gardening goes.

I tried to give everything a good, deep soak. I just hope I didn’t drown the poor things. I guess we’ll find out if and when they sprout.

After the expense of buying plants yesterday, I decided that I’d try to take some clippings from plants in the neighborhood and see if I could get them to root. The landscaping along the busway is pretty well maintained and seems to be heat and drought tolerant so that seemed like a good place to start.

While I was out for my run I took clippings of sage, rosemary, and lavender- so if I’m successful in getting them to root then I’ll have a fragrant garden as well as a hardy one. But again, that relies on me not killing everything with good intentions. So my drawing board has turned into an impromptu nursery/science experiment.
