Yes you heard it right. I am taking a few days vacation and I am dedicating it to my garden. I am lucky that my employer gives me a month vacation every year with one condition... I have to spread the days through out the year.
I am taking off next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Over the next five days I am taking on several projects in the garden. My list is long and very ambitious. I know I won’t finish it, but for a weekend gardener like me, this is the only time I can take on big projects. The weatherman is predicting rain this weekend (but what does he know!!!)
Here is my to do list.
I want to do another flowerbed in this location in the front garden. This will give me a separation from my neighbor’s house. This flowerbed was supposed to be part of my last big project but I ran out time.
I need to get my tomato bed ready for planting. It is too hot to plant tomatoes now; we need the cooler weather of late October/early November but I want to be ready.
The coleus were looking great a couple of weeks ago before all the hurricanes passed by the neighborhood. I want to add new coleus' and I am thinking of adding some high grasses in the background.
This corner needs some work, I am not sure yet what I want to do here.
The birdbath in the center of the grass does not look good. I am adding a small flowerbed to make it look more interesting and I promise I will clean it up.
This water feature broke last week for the second time and I need to fix it.
