We needed to fill some holes in the front raised bed and we needed to get a couple of butterfly bushes for one of the back beds. Oh, and while we’re at it, let’s get another trumpet vine, some sedum and some more columbine.
Of course, when you buy the stuff you have to get it in the ground. And in the heat of the weekend, keeping them in the pots is going to dry them out even faster. So… Sunday and Monday afternoons were spent digging, fertilizing and watering the new stuff.
So far, they seem to be doing alright. And by the time the next round of obnoxiously hot and humid weather comes around, they should have better developed root systems. And I’ll be way to tired of the heat to actually do any work outside in that obnoxious heat and humidity. That’s why they invented air conditioning, right?
