Blueberry Sunday....

Sorry if you live in Thailand, or anywhere else with a slow connection, but there are a lot of images today. Sadly, none are of the kids (Sorry Grandmas!) unless you count the granddog. Tyree and I spent the better part of this rainy weekend adding another three garden beds here at the old Victor Street farm.

I didn't even count this in the three new ones, he just doubled the size of this older one. This bed gets full sun all day, so it's tomatoes, peppers, etc......

This little one next to the other contains 2 giant mature blueberries that we bought from some guy off Craigslist who was moving them for a farmer. It might not be evident in the photo, but they're about 6 feet tall and 4 feet across and loaded with buds. They hadn't been pruned in many years, so we had to remove some of the dead wood.

After being neglected among acres and acres of blueberries, I think they'll thrive spoiled in our back yard with compost. We planted strawberries below them in the bed.


Well, it's not like I'm jealous. I knew she was going to do it. This stinking dog is now more or less in love with Tyree. She follows him around like....well, like a puppy. She's still MY dog when she's injured or hungry or has to go potty......fickle animal.

The wheelbarrow a.k.a. the firepit. We inherited it from Jill and Ted and it kept us warm while we were outside all day today. We burned yard debris and we used it to sterilize various weeds before we threw their charred remains into the compost bin. It's waiting for you, Jill and Ted, on the 25th.
