Backyard Update--April 2010
















It has been quite some time since I last gave an update concerning my progress on the backyard. I have done a lot of planting over the winter and now that Spring has arrived, things are starting to pay off. You can scroll down to my previous Backyard Update to compare photos from November. I am including here some pictures from January and then pictures from April (you will be able to tell which are from January and which are current from the leafing of the trees). Needless to say, I have planted a lot of different types of flowers both in the flower beds and in the border. I have also planted a lot of fruits and vegetables. My current prize is my berries. I currently have 82 strawberry bushes, 32 blackberry bushes, 14 raspberry bushes, and 7 blueberry bushes. While it will be some time before the other berries fruit and ripen, the strawberries are already in full bloom (I've harvested some and when picked at the right time they are amazingly delicious--you are welcome to come on over and try some--I can't eat them all).
My next major project is to put in the lawn. As you can see, weeds have taken over the entire area that I tore up for the lawn, so I have quite a bit of work to do to get it prepared for putting in the grass. Speaking of which, does anybody know of a landscaper that either seeds or sods? I'd like to get started on this whole lawn business so that I can have it done within the next month or two and have people over for bar-b-ques. :)

Oooh. I'm coming over and putting a lawn chair next to the lamp post and reading all afternoon. You know, if I were the barging in and taking over type.

I could help you with your berry excess by making some jam.

Beautiful! I wish I'd had a chance to come by and visit on this trip. Sooooon!

PS Bug Liz to get the gift I got for you. She's had it for 2 months.

Nice garden! and nice use of limited depth of field in your photos! How do you do that? You will have to give me a lesson sometime.
