The sun was out for most of yesterday so we all wasted no time getting outside to soak some of it up. The goats were in a particularly good mood too. I let them out of their fenced portion of the yard and allowed them to do some grazing inside the garden area. They stumbled upon my overgrown strawberry patches and took a liking to them! They LOVED those strawberry plants!
Noahh spent her morning outside with me too, munching on her "nom nom's" while I tended to some chores around the deck.
My lovely and I wanted to get those three ultra dwarf apple trees we purchased into pots, so we started that process by giving them a healthy drink of water before transplanting them.
Erick amended the soil in three huge containers and got each tree into their new home. We love our ultra dwarf fruit trees that are potted on our deck. The provide a little bit of privacy and look beautiful too!
This is the first Braeburn apple we have bought. Excited to see how this one does!
...here's the Zestar Apple...
Oh Sobe! She's been such a great dog lately. Our other pup, Tech, has been really obnoxious lately. I swear, if it's not one, it's the other. They go in circles with which one is behaving and which one isn't. It's a rarity for them to both behave at the same time. Sobe loved all of the attention she was getting while we were all outside working.
...and our Gala! Really thrilled about this one. I think she'll do great up on the deck.
I love to mulch and then spread flower seeds inside the same pots as the trees. It just adds a pop of color come spring time.
Speaking of seeds. I had a few boxes laying around and now that I have a beautiful new potting bench, I was inspired to get out there and clean up ALL of my pots from last year. That's right. I amended ALL of the soil in EVERY pot I had.
I've never had such success with growing a variety of flower than I have had with Impatiens and Marigolds. Plus, they're good for our vegetable gardens!
I feel better now, knowing all of my pots have been cleaned up and re-seeded. I also went through the ones that have perennials and got them cleaned up too and ready to sprout new growth!
Another good day with plenty accomplished!
