I am not a natural-born gardener, but when it came to planting the edamame I knew my stuff.
We dug our rows, added our fertilizer and planted those seeds.
Now we will just have to see if they actually come up!
We also tended to our tomato plants, which we grew from seeds that my parents gave us for Christmas.
In the beginning these plants were labeled, but when we transplanted several of the varieties from the starter boxes to the garden, we forgot to transplant the label sticks as well.
Will be interesting to see what variety of tomatoes we end up with.
Even though we bought the truck primarily to use in practical ways (trips to Lowe’s, deer camp, to haul loads of mulch,) I might also have big plans to take her garage sale-ing on Saturdays, to the lake for picnics in the back, and maybe even a photo shoot or two… Just maybe. Could you blame me?
The final update is this windmill in the front yard. My in-laws recently moved to Louisiana (which I am in a bit of denial about,) and we inherited lots of goodies they didn’t feel like hauling across the state line. This windmill was one of them. It is a little too rustic for my taste like it is, so I am planning on painting it.
Right now I am divided between red (like our front door) or sky blue (like our mail box) or just going rogue and painting the whole thing mustard. (Please cast your vote in the comments!)
So that is what is happening around our little Urban Cottage Farm.
What is happening in your neck of the woods?
