Perennial Garden: Installing Edging

One of the things on my To-Do list was to put edging around my perennial garden. Today seemed like a good day, so after breakfast I headed out to start digging. As I dug, I found rocks. Lots of rocks. I found pebbles too. I think I spent more time pulling rocks and pebbles out of the trench than I did digging it. I finally got my trench dug, put in the edging and put the soil back around it. It's not the most attractive thing in the world, but it should help with the runoff problem next summer.

Last week I went over and helped rake up my grandparent's leaves. I ended up with 6 bags. I've already used two bags on my veggie garden, and the rest will end up around plants that need extra insulation for the winter, in the compost pile, and whatever is left will go on my garden paths -check out this blog for more things to do with fallen leaves.

My outdoor project list:
  • Wrap/mulch transplanted Russian Sage
  • Finish spreading leaves around gardens
  • Figure out how to make the cold frame work right and plant some more lettuce in it
Farewell For Now~

Hi Sarah, I have always thought I would use a cold frame but have never made one. I even went so far as to find some old windows to use for the frame but ended up hanging them on our yard barn to give it more personality. You will have to keep us informed as to how you use yours and the results.

Lisa: I will definitely update about the cold frame. We've had them for many years, but never used them. It should be interesting. At the very least, I'll have something to blog about during the winter months! =)
