a busy day in the garden

Today I was very busy in the garden.  My back and hands hurt but I’m happy with the results.  I prepared the raised beds, and transplanted most of the vegetables Nicole and I started 6 weeks ago.  We have spinach, kale, turnips, lettuce, beets, and bok choy.  And I built a flower tower with Sarah.  It’s a leaning tower, but it will look fabulous when it grows.  And Sarah and I planted almost all the summer flowering bulbs.  We filled soil into 25 buckets that Nicole had drilled drainage holes in.  Then planted the bulbs and covered them with soil.  Labeling each variety.  So I think we have in total 50 buckets of flowering summer flowers.  It should be beautiful!  For my own record today we planted…White Prosperity gladiolus, Red Canna, Sarah Bernhardt peony,  Zantedeschia, Lilly Oriental Conca d’or, Nori Gladiolus, Mixed Hostas, Centaurea dealbata, Convallaria majalis, Elodie Lilly, Green star Gladiolus, Park Princess dahlia, Astilbe Europa.

I'm excited about the garden this year. Still cleaning up from winter and hopes that next week I can get my act together for this years garden.
