By Meg, Age 42.
rearrange pots on back patio
move daffies to side of house
move rose to front yard
move unblooming peonies to side yard
move lions head planters to back patio
plant Martha Washington geranium + african daisies in large terra cotta pot
plant fuschias into hanging basket
plant begonias into vase planter
Pull grass from front hill (partially done)
Plant front deck pots
Finish removing dead photina stump
Think about tomato cages
Weed behind lilac
Prune lilac suckers, dead blossoms (I'm sad that the lilac is all done)
Plant new seedum bowl for gymgeek
Stakes for hollyhocks
Stakes for lilies
Hot glue mushroom caps (and put them out in the garden, too!)
turn strawberry pot into herb pot
plant second spanish lavender (buy 2nd spanish lavender!)
Get annual geraniums for instant color
Plant upside-down pot (climbing nasturiums?)
Seed nasturiums under boxwood (planning it for 3 years, just do it!)
Weed brick patio
Move compost bin
Set up food waste composter
Think about perennial shade plants (calidiums, astilbe) around vase planter
And even more!
finish soaker system for veggie beds
mulch daylilies in front--maybe add soaker hose?
give in and buy sweet peas, plant alongside house in pots for flowers
re-distribute soil around new brick stepping stones.
Acquire a few more used brick for stepping stones.
Adhesive for glass stepping stones, seal concrete.
But wait, there's more
Replace white cosmos that became snail food (damned snails)
Plant baby bok choi seeds
it never ends!
But then there were additions, as I finished things:
Buy bean seed (preferred, Renee's Gardens tri-colored bush beans)
Buy snapdragons for front hill color--consider perennial geraniums for long term solution
Fertilize rose of sharon tree
More water for climbing rose in front (aqua cone?)
Use florist wire to make coir liner fit in fushia basket
Paint Patio furniture (I can't believe this didn't make my list!)
Get rest of cushions (for outdoor chairs) from Don (next weekend!)
I'm sure I'll think of more as the
