Week Ending 2016-06-11

[avatar] Days 088-094.  It’s been 3 months since we started!  We’re almost done with the initial planting.  Hopefully, we’ll finish up the front next week.  The front is driving me nuts and I can’t wait to finish at least the planting part while we wait for the rest to fall into place.  Granted, we’d have already finished if we didn’t have so many seedling issues.  lol  Learning experience!  🙂  We might not end up planting everything that’s “annual” this year since it’s so late, but I’m going to try.  🙂

We’ve done SOOOOO much to the pond.  lol.  Just when I thought it was mostly settled.  🙂  I don’t think we’ve done more than token maintenance to the rest of the farm.  It’s surprising how invested Kevin got into the pond that he vetoed me having in the first place.  teehee!  🙂

Kevin decided that he wanted to border in Foodscaping Trail with the same plants as the Reading Piazza.  He went with Blue Prince/Princess Holly plants.  They should have pretty red berries and will be evergreens so that when Foodscaping Trail goes partially dormant in the winter it won’t be an eyesore.  It will also keep road noise down for sitting on the front porch enjoying our waterfall and pond.  🙂

This holly has berries but “identifies” as a Prince! LOL!

MunchBug has been sick for several days now.  She spiked a nasty fever and is finally down to a “normal” fever.  Hopefully it’ll break by morning.  🙂

My poor sickly baby!  Lovingly infecting Daddy’s side of the bed with the plague!

My silly “Ice Cream” Banana plant finally arrived.  🙂

We’re starting to get stuff ready for the Reading Piazza so that by the time we’re done with Foodscaping Trail we’ll be able to just pop everything into place.  🙂  I wanted the more “zen-y” pergola but he preferred the gazebo type.  They are both nice, so I went with his pick.  🙂

The big garden.  I just need to get rid of the weeds/grass so it looks better. 🙂
