Anyway on to happier times... We spent a lot of time out in nature this past week. Well with Spring finally here in all its glory, we have taken full advantage. First we visited a creek that runs through 2 cities where we live.
We also planted marigolds as my father-in-law told us that they would be a deterrent for some bugs and insects. We planted on Wednesday of this week because the weather forecast said that it would rain on Thursday and boy did it. So our garden was well watered yesterday and hopefully our seeds are on their way.
We labeled popsicle sticks to help us remember what we planted where.
We also spread our compost over the garden after we planted. Generally you would place some compost in the soil where you are sowing the actual seed. Our compost however was not 100% ready. I'd say it was about 50% ready and an ant family took up residence in it so we had to spread it out in the sun and air to get them out and then we took what was ready and spread it out over top of the garden space. Hey, nobody said that it would be easy...I sure didn't ::smile::.
Also watch out for our next Silly School Song, Plant Life!! We're working on it tonight...should be a fun one!!! And if you haven't yet, help us get the word out by liking us on facebook. Thanks a million!
