Adirondacks

Finished staining the adirondack chairs and table this weekend. Despite some back-slat spacing issues and some squaring problems on one, I think they ended up OK.

Mums blooming in May.

Not usually, I guess, but if you say so...

Late to the party

This random different kind of iris bloomed this week, long after the others are gone. Also beginning to bloom: blue salvia, onions (big white ball of flowers), and I see the beginnings of blooms on the butterfly bush.

Some End of April Updates

As April comes to a close, here is what is going on at the end of the month:

During the month, I did the following:
  • Fertilized the grass with Neil Sperry's All Nitrogen Fertilizer
  • Started mowing regularly at pretty low height
  • Applied Image to kill Nutsedge and Annual Bluegrass in the yard once bermuda started growing
  • Planted Annual color in front and back beds (need more in front beds)
  • Planted sunflower seeds and have various sprouts growing
As far as vegetables I have some small bell peppers already forming, and no tomatoes yet, but the tomato plants are HUGE and blooming!  Pictures to follow.
