9:06 pm - 52 degrees - clear, calm night...
For the past two evenings, when the sun starts to set behind the mountain, I have gone inside smelling like dirt. Actually the kids smell like dirt also. The kids have been running around, playing, enjoying the sunshine, and somehow manage to get covered in dirt from head to toe. While I have been busy potting plants, I am only covered in dirt up to my elbows. I love Springtime.
Good news...I am so excited to start planting! Not so good news...all the plants I ordered (from various locations) came at the same time. Now I'm a tad bit overwhelmed, trying to get all 236 plants in pots or in the ground.
So far I have...
---55 of the 120 bare root strawberry plants placed 1 gallon pots.
---20 of the 75 huckleberry starts in 1 gallon pots.
---still have to find a location and plant the 4 red and 2 golden raspberry starts.
---and 35 various bulbs to plant, but need to remove the grass out of the flowerbed first.
Hopefully I will have everything in pots or in the ground by the end of the weekend.
