Hello,

Today I met my friend Patty at Nourse Plant Center.  I had ordered plants in late February to be picked up May 1st.  Patti was going to pick out some plants today.   Norse ships berry plants all over the United States.  Their plants are exceptional and their staff knows all there is to know about the plants.  Patti and I both went away happy with our selections.

 I planted the 2 blueberries that I bought and the 2 elderberries.  I still have 5 raspberries and some horseradish and strawberries to plant another day.

Potatoes

Today I planted 3 tubs of potatoes.  With at least a couple of more to plant another day.  Filling the bins with at least 3 inches of chicken floor sweepings and then around 5 inches of dirt.  The sweepings will help add just enough acid to the soil.  As soon as the stems are about 5 inches I will start to mound them.

Fencing

 

I did start putting in the fence posts today and should have the fence up by tomorrow.  This will give me some fencing to grow peas on in the spring and cukes on during the summer.

Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.    Carole
