Friday was a day off work for both Michael and I (well sort of for me, I did a 2 hour training class online about Harassment) after that it was time to join my hubby outside and contribute to the yard care. He mowed the lawn and worked on his front planter beds. A friend from work had given him a ton of clippings, plants and bulbs last year and he has certainly made the most of them. It was time to transplant some of them from pots into the ground. We have actually been trying to plant as little in the ground as possible since we are renting and want to take many of these plants when we buy our own place.
I worked in the back garden, or what used to be the back garden. Since we are on a tidal marsh there is a lot of salt water to deal with. In the past few weeks we have had a few tropical storm scares, heavy rain and lunar high tides. This has turned the back corner into a wet mess and my rosemary bush has paid the price. That of course could have also been because I have done absolutely nothing back there this year and the bed was full of weeds. I had to take the trimmers back there to cut them back since for some unknown reason they refuse to be pulled out of the ground. Three hours later this is what was left.....gone is my beautiful rosemary bush but we are hoping that the trim and subsequent transplanting of some life pieces to once again have plenty to share!
|What is left of the rosemary bush after a pretty severe hair cut! The garlic chives seem to thrive on the salt water and weeds however!|
|The ground when it is not wet! This makes a fun place to play when the yard is flooded and you are a golden!|
|The backyard on the other side of the fence! I love this tree even though it is dead, the birds hang out on it and the woodpecker has many hours of pecking enjoyment!|
|Cherry tomatoes galore!|
|He had to have his picture taken!|
|Some of the larger tomatoes, they are not as big as they look but are they ever tasty!|
