We have been on a planting orgy around here. Not only is this the time of year when most of the vegetable seeds and seedlings go into the potager, we have also embarked on a major campaign to add more shrubs—particularly flowering shrubs—to the property.
Sophie and Sarah inspect the vegetable plantings in the potager.
Thank goodness Harry is a good sport and has a strong back and good endurance. The hardpan clay soil we have here in Southern Maryland makes digging new beds and planting trees and shrubs a major weekend endeavor.
The wisteria on the fence is getting there. The peonies won’t be far behind.
And I’m so tired, that’s it. The end.
