Today's Garden Shopping Day


I had such a fun shopping trip today for the garden and yard. I spent all our school money for the week. I bought a peach tree, 2 grape vines, 2 blueberry vines, 2 strawberry plants, a pack of garlic to plant, seed packets of peas and broccoli, a new rake, a trellis and some turf builder for the yard. I can't wait until the girls and I get out and plant everything on Monday. I have wanted to have fruit trees for years - so this is a nice start. What else would you start with in South Carolina but a peach tree. There are peach fields all over our area, but I've never known anyone to have one it their yard??? I am still hoping to get some apple trees as well. I still need to go back and get some more trellis, but they will be okay to wait for a week or two.

GRAPE VINES! My grandpa had a grape vine when I was growing up and I have always wanted one. I'll have to see what I can do when we get to the DR. They take a while to grow don't they?
Happy Growing!

Kelly,

We had a beautiful 60 degree weekend here in Oregon and the gardening bug has biten! I went out and bought my slug bait (a huge problem here in soggy Oregon) so I am ready for those little buggers! My bulbs are poking through and I can't wait to get out there and start planting -still a little too soon but I am pouring over my gardening magazines dreaming of what I am going to do!

Thanks Leigh Anne, I love gardening. This is just our third year. We are expanding each year - learning by our mistakes. :-)

I look forward to seeing what all you plant.

Gwyn,

I know nothing about growing grape vines!! :-) We are just trying new things out to keep learning. I can't wait to get out there and get everything planted tomorrow!!

My mimi and granddaddy always had grapes and I have fun memories of them making jelly each year. Maybe we'll get to try that next year?
