I decided to seek out some help in the garden. Since it's early yet, with the peas just planted, and not sprouted, and only one turkey, I figured it should be safe to let these guys in.
I planted one bunch of what is hopefully English Thyme in the perennial bed. Hopefully, because I can't believe my own stupidity! I had taken a few seedlings out of their original plant trays because they were hitting the tray lid, and moved them to a tray without a lid. I wrote it down when I moved them. And then I lost the paper!! So I have this tray of mixed seedlings that are all doing really well, and I'm guessing what is what! I covered it with a pop bottle top.
I also have a tire in my garden. One big tractor tire. Husband filled it with compost, and I topped it with wood chips and bark. I am debating what to plant in it. At first I was thinking something perennial or biennial would be good. I was kind of leaning towards parsnips, but it's kind of small for that. Then I thought it might be a good spot for garlic. The last time I tried garlic it didn't over winter well, and we really only got about one clove back for each clove that I planted. Then I thought it might be good for green onions. Husband and the boys are always walking on things and complaining they can't find the onions. If they were in the tire they'd be easy to find, and other veggies would be safe. The more I debate it, the more I think I should find more tires. There are so many possibilities!
