Good morning! I hope this finds you well, do you have a busy day planned? It seems that time of the year when we are all so busy trying to get plants started or planted outside. I hope its warm in your neck of the woods as it was cold here yesterday with the wind just a blowin'! It only got around 37 or so here and it was windy!
So you are wondering hmmm its Try- it Tuesday what has Raine been up too now? Well let me first tell you the computer has been acting up so it has been hard to post anything! I think it should be good now, but you never know!So today I am posting on planting some things. No they were not done today, I had to do it on a nice warm, no wind sort of day! Mikhaila as well as some of the other residents here on the farm helped me out. So here we go.
|Olive- yes he is a boy! Checking out what his mother is planting!|
|Some of the empty hanging pots that we put seeds in.|
|Mikhaila planted marigolds in the one basket.She is the marigold queen! Those are the first flowers she goes for! Any color- just marigolds!|
|Here she is planting my johnnie jump-ups! What can I say I love pansies and johnny jump ups! The easiest way to make me smile is to look at one of these plants!|
|So Celeste (the dark one) had to come and check things out and she brought Annabelle ( the buff goose)|
|Celeste likes big buckets of water! LOL|
|Mikhaila loves her peppers! The hotter the better!|
|They thought the crinkly bag had food in it.... it was potting soil! LOL|
|She was having so much fun helping out!! LOL|
|She was talking the entire time. Probably saying hey thanks for the water! You should try this!|
|We planted morning glories, johnnie jump- ups and sunflowers around the base of the feeder pole.|
|Threw some soil on top of the seeds and watered them.|
|Dahlia out there seeing what we were doing.|
|Dutchess taking a break after running around the yard like she was a crazy woman! She thinks she is the protector of the yard- she chases the robins and even the butterflies off the lawn!|
|I have to say the bucket was the favorite watering hole this day!|
|Here she is planting heirloom tomatoes- yellow pear. She loves these tomatoes. Can you see all her helpers?|
I hope you have been able to get some plants started. Even if it is just a couple trays of some different plants that make you happy. Like Mikhaila and her marigolds, me and my morning glories and pansys. I am sure there are some flowers or veggies that you have to have! Try to plant some out around the mailbox post ( we put morning glories out there) or by a fence- they don't always need to be in a pot. Make sure that you go see what others have been trying out at Jo's Country Junction. Mke sure you tell me what you are trying.Have a great day!
