Doors and Planting...
When I finished that we were planning to go to see "Baby Driver". We both liked it.
Anyway, before we left, I did a lot on the back porch.
I spent most of the morning in the back yard.
I had several plants that I wanted to put in the ground, but was hesitating. Our ground is like a layer of almost rock hard dirt and very difficult to dig holes in...
I found that the hose was doing most of the work that I usually struggle with. With the nozzle on "Jet", it not only softened the dirt but a lot of it was moved right out of the hole with very little effort... I had these Mexican Heather plants in the ground in a matter of minutes. Why didn't someone tell me that I could do this before?
That was so easy that I went ahead and planted two of these succulents...
Again it was a matter of minutes getting them in the ground.
After finding out an easy way to dig holes in the dirt that I usually have to fight with, I will probably be replacing some other plants that have bit the dust.
We have been in this house about 20 years and some of the older plants are just at the end of their lives. I have high hopes of some new garden plants.
Somebody stop me! My green thumb is getting itchy!
See you tomorrow.
