Still Digging

The Dream Garden is a dream come true. It is growing like crazy, and really enjoyed the winter rains. Scott continued to have a problem keeping the mulberry twigs on my path leading to the garden, so we finally dug it out and put in a bark path, to match the one in the garden. I LOVE IT!

Scott is back to digging again. The plumbing has been buried around the outside of the pool, I mean pond. Now he is digging a hole for the top of the waterfall, leading down to the pool, I mean pond. Today we were excited to notice one of our vines producing flowers for the first time since we bought it 2 years ago. It came home with a couple buds from the garden store, then promptly never budded again. What a beautiful site to see pretty purple trumphets. I planted garlic cloves last October, to grow over the fall and winter. They are not ready to harvest yet, but we are anxiously awaiting the turnout of our first homegrown garlic. Just planted tonite, several varieties of tomatoes... and jalepeno, serrano and habanero peppers. Along with red bell pepper and cucumbers. We are still keeping an eye out for some more peppers, as we need a full batch for our summer salsa makings!
