Spreading the Dirt!
Yes, the new U-shaped design is complete. I just have to finish the paths so that dratted Bermuda grass will hopefully not be able to find its way into the raised beds. Anyone that has tried will tell you that it's not easy getting rid of Bermuda grass. Especially since I refuse to use any chemicals so close to the vegetable beds. So, it's just plain hard work, and hopefully some clever strategies, to rid this space of the Bermuda invasion. How successful my plan will be, only time will tell.
I also planted the Europeana rose, near the bird bath. I will definitely take pics this summer when it is blooming.
It was a glorious day to work outside. We are expecting a cold front to come through and it is supposed to be chilly the next few days, so it was good to get these chores out of the way now. Though they didn't feel like chores. Isn't that what they say? Find something you love to do and you'll never work a day in your life!
