I have decided to start spending a certain budget each month on improving the garden (~$100) and then blogging about it here on A Gardener’s Notebook. March starts the first month in the series and I am beginning by trying to “re-green” the back garden, which has suffered with over planting and too much shade since we first moved in 16 years ago. I didn’t get pictures of everything this time, but I’ll make sure to do better in future installments, including labels and such.
It is a little hard to tell from the receipt (and I think the checker might have missed some items), but here is what I picked up this month.
- False Aralia: 5 gallon
- Schefflera: 5 gallon
- Aucuba: 1 gallon (2)
- Worm Castings (2)
- Watering Can
- Basil (2)
- Nasturtium Seeds
