Spring planting

The weather was so warm two weeks ago, so I had to get out there and begin my spring planting. Apollo was my helper when it came to planting my Dahlia bulbs.  He likes digging and he really loved playing with all of the worms we encountered.

When he finished with me, he took some time to play with his dad! He has had these since he was really little but he is really too big for them but it was fun watching them ride around the driveway!

Every year, for some time now, I take my father-in-law plant shopping for his father’s day gift. We learned a few years ago that it’s better to go right after Mother’s day to get the best plants. So off we went, I didn’t go with a plan. I just browsed but I bought much more perennials which really makes me happy since they will return each year. 

I also began buying some vegetable plants for my veggie beds. The day we went shopping it was in the 90s so we went shopping early and I waited until Saturday do my planting.

I managed to get a good start but much more to do. My wireless headphones broke so I need to find another inexpensive option to use when I am out in the garden. I like to listen to my audiobooks and podcasts while I mess around in the garden.  Last year, I learned the hard way using headphones with wires and I accidentally cut the cord.  Yup, it happened.  So Bluetooth all the way. I am hoping to get out in the garden later today to continue work in the garden. Have a fantastic weekend!
