More Gardening Today...and....

April 6th, 2006 at 10:26 pm

I finally got my strawberry and bushelmaker tomatoes in. The strawberries are potted and the tomatoes are planted. I also put together the garden arch I bought for only $7.00. Now I'm training one of my climbing rose bushes to it. On my local freecycle group page, I found people that need to get rid of plant pots and bricks. That means I get to give some of my "babies" new homes and the bricks will be used for another flower bed. I also found a new gardening site today, davesgarden.com. There's a lot of good information on the site plus people to trade plants with but its not as cost effective as gardenhere.com because Dave's Garden wants a membership fee to view replies and pictures of plants in the forum.

The best news of the day is that we now have another credit card paid off! YAY! Now all I have to do is call and cancel it. Four more credit cards to go.

I found a baby bunny

April 5th, 2006 at 06:12 pm

I was digging the addition to my garden yesterday with a friend and in the midst of digging, I nearly hit a poor little frightened bunny. I thought it was a dead animal but when I picked it up, it was quite alive. Now this little bunny's mommy was no where to be found and it was most likely a wild rabbit as they roam our neighborhood. I checked with the neighbors anyway, no one lost a baby bunny, so the rabbit went to the friend who helped me dig the garden addition. His fiance knows how to take care of bunnies. Thank goodness someone took the bunny as I would have felt horrible if I had to just let it go in a field not knowing if it would survive and yes, I'm dumb when it comes to rabbits. I know nothing about them.

Gardening

I've been gardening! I've gotten a ton of seeds on sale at Walmart and various other places. I also found a rose bush for $4.00, lavender colored blooms. I dug up the dead bushes that I bought at Home Depot and exchanged them under their 1 year warranty for three new bushes. I got 3 mini rose bushes and they are soooo cute! I also bought another climbing rose bush with blooms in a pink color. Now I just have to get the rose garden in my backyard weeded and ready to plant the new rose bushes. YAY!

I found this very cool site at gardenhere.com. It is a community of gardeners that are committed to exchanging and trading seeds, plants and gardening knowledge so that gardening becomes a fun, inexpensive hobby. If you are a gardener, I suggest checking it out!

The only downside is my leg has been bitten to pieces and it itches soooooo bad from all this gardening.
