Where have we been? Mostly out in the garden….
Spring is upon us and we have been raking, weeding, admiring the plants coming up through the slowly warming soil, moving stones, cutting down trees, and edging the beds.
Edging is heavy work but I love the way it defines the gardens and makes them look cared for (as well as keeping the grass from creeping into the beds).
Inside the greenhouse, there are flats upon flats of seedlings. Some are for the garden, some for the All-America Selections Display, and some for the plant sale.
We also made a few trips to the unheated overwintering house at URI’s East Farm, where perennials in pots stay for the winter. Now they are inside and coming up beautifully, ready for the garden and the plant sale.
SAVE THE DATE: Plant Sale Friday May 3rd, 8AM to 2 PM, at the greenhouse on campus, then on Saturday May 11th at the East Farm Festival, 9 AM to 2 PM at URI’s East Farm.
Vegetable seedlings, All-America Selections annuals, and Garden-dug perennials!
