I wish I accomplished so much in my short times at the garden. :/

While I was at work yesterday I asked my kids to continue sod removal. I'd hoped they would have finished, but they left some for me to do. What I think of as finished, and how they view it are two very different things. In all chores, actually.

Sige, garden up date? :D

Omnious dark clouds rolling in. We need rain a few days, not right now. Rain barrels are full to the max.

Did a little clean up today.

That's not all you did - thank you for dropping off the red currant bush! I'm embarrassed to admit I had forgotten u_u

Things have been really busy lately. Son told me you were by. He leaves for his big trip Friday - that's part of the reason things have been so crazy.

I am eyeing the weekend and thinking about possibilities.

I've got several Saskatoon berry bushes potted up right now. They look like twigs right now but will grow quite large. This is a very good variety for Saskatoon berry pies as we found out and can be quite a heavy bearer. I found they don't ripen all at once so you're picking for either a long time or let the birds eat some. Nothing wrong with that either. We deseed ours and make a slurry to jam up or use as syrup.

Up for grabs of course, how many can I exactly have here? Bman? Slootman? Lady t? PBear? One each?

Whatwhat, you seem to have dropped out but rest assured I had strawberrys for you. I just needed your PM to be reactivated.

I'll take a Saskatoon - where did you get yours from originally?

Two down. Warning: they are small right now. Production by next year? Or the year after?
I got them originally at Dry Valley Gardens, now closed as I understand it. Unfortunately the name has been lost, but I know they are prairie types, and they like water. So make sure they have a good source. Mine get a liters of rain water.

No thanks Queenie. We have a couple at the back already. The birds sure love them!

Only my yellow tulips are blooming right now, wait til the pinks are blooming, then swoop in and pick up the Saskatoon. :130:

Kinda bummed out, all day it was nice but on the cold side. I can handle cold and working outdoors doing stuff, but this spitting rain is getting me down. So I'm sitting here.
