Near the end of the day the vegetable beds looked even better than these pictures, my husband worked until after dark...

We got the Anna apple tree planted, by Anna the

Lastly, part of the blueberry patch, more to be planted next week!

This week: planting persimmons, more blueberries, strawberry bed, strawberry guavas and more!

Deb, last week I planted some (very late) Daffodils. The baby brang me each one and handed them to me gently, so cute. (she later progressed to pummeling me with them though)Its so fun to teach the kids to be gardeners, I hope they grow up and enjoy it....I know my passion came from my grandparents. Thank for the nice comment, Im always surprised to see someone is actually lookng at this.
