But meanwhile, we're busy preparing.
I planted a bunch of flowers in the hoop house....
These will go around the tomato plants...they help keep some bugs away!
John's been working on putting in the water system for our new back garden. He's digging the trenches to bury the pipe, etc. Now that I'm looking at this picture, it appears he's not quite straight on his line there....wonder if he had been drinking a beer before he did this. ha!
I put together a mini-herb garden for this year in one of the tubs I used for potatoes last year (not doing that again!) This was lots of fun!
Behind the onion chives is another transplanted parsley from last year (Curly Leaf), and in front of that is Cilantro (yuck! But John loves it. *head shake*) I put the blue wine bottle in upside down with a piece of screen wrapped around the top, filled with water. It slowly drips to keep the soil moist.
Then in my free time (ha ha ha) I cleaned up and put out the tiny bird water bath again. When I went out this evening to feed the cats, there was a lizard in it. Guess he was taking a bath!
