The kids got a lot done yesterday at the Vinton Youth Garden. Well, the adults helped, too.
I got twenty 40 pound bags of top soil to try out the Gardening in a Bag I spoke about in an earlier posting. After planting gourds and watermelons, we covered them with mulch.
We still need to plant some pumpkins and acorn squash, so I will be getting more of the bags for next week. We have plenty of room available.
Leo and Lori were helpful, too. Lori helped move the bags of soil and wheelbarrows worth of mulch. And Leo was a HUGE help in weeding the area under the pine trees with the hostas. It looks AWESOME!
We also got some Cannas planted, some sweet potatoes in the ground, and the peppers caged.
We moved the picnic table to the cement slab and got the fabric on top of the pergola to help provide some needed shade on the table.
Next week we will be moving some peonies that aren’t even budding (they are in a kind of pit and obviously too deep), mulching the apple trees, the next round of Garden bags and the hostas. And possibly planting more flowers in the fourth lot. I’ll keep you informed.
