In the Garden – Week 1

After a marathon Ground Zero weekend we had a full week of nothing but torrential rain.  I spent my days waffling back and forth between being grateful that I didn’t have to water and worrying that all of that work would be for naught when my plants cried uncle and died as did Charlie from LOST (or did he?).

By the end of the week the rain was starting to abate and I managed to plant our 8th blueberry bush (the other 7 were planted last year), 35 strawberry sets, a row of purple onions, 2 sunflower starts that my mother-in-law brought me from her garden, 2 Brown Turkey Fig trees, a 2-in-1 Sweet and Tart Cherry tree and a dozen begonias.
