Trellis Trio

As part of my quest to rebuild my gardens from the destruction that the remodel caused, I needed some trellises to support my roses in the summer and create interest in the winter. I wanted them to be round on the top to echo the arch that was already present on the property. Everything I found was $200 a piece and since I needed 4 (3 here and 1 in another area), that was way over my budget. After searching all off season, I found some perfect metal trellis for $50/each at Stein's. The only problem, they were green. I wanted cream to match the accent colors on the house. Solution? I painted them and now, they match perfectly! Check them out:

I can't wait to get those roses out there!!

Row Cover

This weekend, I tried starting the season early with a row cover. I transplanted cold weather greens and sowed radishes, peas and beans directly into the soil.

Wish me luck that I can keep everything alive:-) Playing along with Wordless Wednesday at 5 Minutes for Mom and Wordful Wednesday on parenting By dummies:-)

Garden Update

I haven't done a garden update in forever. Probably because I haven't had a garden in a while. Here are my sprouts. 

Another thing happened in the garden today. The best way to describe it is to share an email I sent to my husband today:

"Ok....wildlife hates me. After sowing some seeds inside, I ventured outside to see how things are going out there. I turned the compost and pulled out the old plants from the veggie garden. Man, there are a TON of weeds in there:-( I would LOVE to get a hold of that this year. Anyway, I tried to turn the soil and there was no way. Rock solid. Then, I turned my attention to the peonies. I thought I could get a jump on spring cleaning by pulling those out too. I mean, the veggies came out really easily. And I thought, I could pull them before the new stuff starts to come up. Well, I took one pull and out popped...a bunny!!! I screamed like someone was stabbing me repeatedly! I am sure the neighbors love it when I go outside because it is so entertaining. I went directly inside to pull the crap out of my pants and I am done for today. ##%^^^& bunnies!!!"
