Herbs, fruit trees...I love Spring

Sunday, May 02, 2021

My DH planted four fruit trees yesterday --two fig, two plum. We have been fortunate with the growth and resilience of our two pear trees on north side of our house (one was planted too near our and learn, eh?). This endeavor has been on my DH mind. he had a couple of days away from his office this week and I am glad he was able to work outside, get some sunshine and get his trees planted.

I thought maybe I would journal/blog a bit more about my journey for health and self care if I shared some photos of some of our outdoor projects.

Above, I have scanned the info that came with the trees. If anyone has advice for the novice tree grower, I will be interested to read it!

Oh, and after I posted that picture above along with the early part of this blog entry, I saw a new ad at the margin. It had such a lovely picture ( and it relates to the challenge this week for our 5% challenge) that I "snipped it". Maybe I can get better at arranging a tasty-looking plate or bowl:

Earlier this week, I helped my DH plant some perennials and put out some herb plants. I also purchased some clay pots yesterday at a big garage sale (supporting Alzheimer research here in TN) and I plan to plant seed and nurture them until I can put them into the ground, too.

pictures will be coming! I just have to e-mail myself from my cell phone.

more to come...but got to get dressed and out the door very soon. Here is to more sunshine and some good eatin'.

    emoticon I have always wanted a fig tree. My neighbor down the street has one. My DH thinks we have too many trees and other yard junk to mow around. I would love to see more pictures of your gardening. emoticon
