Silver Bells and Cockle Shells

We planted our garden today....

Time to transplant from these pots to the garden bed. 

Before - with Chief Superintendent Robbie

Bed full of weeds

Got the bed cleared of all the weeds

Planted everything in the ground - Right side

Drew up the garden plan so that I can tell what is what since I'm not exactly a green thumb...
I can recognize most of it, but the garlic and green onions look the same from above ground.

Tomorrow is herb planting day... I didn't get to the second tier of the garden as my back was getting very tight.

All in all we spent 5 solid hours outside doing gardening today, in the sunshine and warmth. The longest we've spent outdoors puttering in months and months...

According to those who never get it right, we are expected to have full sun and double digit temperatures and I look forward to many more days sitting out amongst the dapples of garden sunshine.....


  1. Hi Rogues. I'm so jealous of people planting already. We had a dusting of snow in MI this morning. Looks like you have a very nice lot there with a lot of nature. A great place to be secluded!

    1. We are very lucky to have found this spot for sure. Nice to hear from you again.

  2. Good for you getting your plants in. We are a little colder here at the lake still so will wait a couple more weeks before getting my herbs in the vertical planters (2) that Ray has build me.

    1. I am very jealous of your planters, hope they are screwed down LOL

  3. Glad to see the Garden taking shape.
    Hopefully we'll all see outside weather soon.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the Vegetables of your labour.

    It's about time.

  4. Looks great. Ours are plants are in pots inside for a few more days. Expecting -4C tonight.
