A Garden Day

Good girl Bella, stay on the paths!
We got some Sweet Mint plants the other day and stuck them into the corners of our herb bed, I also seeded some Broad Leaf Sage around the Mint. I LOVE the smell of fresh mint. It reminds me of summertime, and Emandal, they had a huge mound of mint that you could smell as you walked past the last cattle guard to the farmhouse....mmmm. So soothing and such sweet memories, of a most wonderful place! Dorian caught me yesterday bent over with my face in the mint wagging my head back and forth, sniffing deeply, such a happy aroma.

Greenhouse space is getting tight! We had to go get some wood to add shelves, and we were requested to add another long bed to the garden! We potted up lots of broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and a mix of lettuces. As well as today I did a bit of cilantro, and about 12 jalapeno peppers mmm, I'm so excited for salsa!! I planted some more strawberries today and some gladiolus! I think Dorian indulged me a bit at the seed store the other day :) He knows how much I love flowers and that it seems we may run out of garden space so I have to keep my flowery aspirations under wraps so we can have enough room for all our yummy veggies and fruits!
Speaking of fruits I almost forgot! We planted 4 blueberry trees! They are huge! Especially compared to the first little blueberry plants we got that were about a foot tall, these are almost 4 feet tall!
Our backyard is going to be DELICIOUS!
