For my 200th post I thought I would write about the garden since it's the most time consuming. Also a big thank you for sticking around to see my 200th post.
This seems to happen a lot. I dig a hole to plant something, turn my head, and there's one of these in the hole when I turn back. They are very hard to get rid of, have very tenacious roots, and sharp thorns. They tend to pop out and "attack" when you least suspect it.
This is my onion bed. Or one of my onion beds. This one is a direct sown set of onions. I buy these at the garden center. I have a piece of extra metal fencing laid down because of cats. This fencing also makes a great grid for planting the onions. About 50 come in a set. I love these because they grow easily and I can pretty much forget them. I'll leave most of them and in the fall they will be baseball/softball size onions.
The lemon tree and nectarine tree still look pretty strong. I have doubts about the lemon tree making it and wish I had planted it in a semi shade spot. I forgot all about the rose bush Rowan bought me and have ignored it good and proper. This is probably a good thing since it is thriving happily without my nuturing love.
Well, that pretty much wraps up our garden for today. I hope you have a great day in your garden and if you have any lemon tree tips, send them my way.
