Monday Yardening

First round: Planted and mulched two sweetbush seedlings in the forest garden.  I am slowly trying to replace the mess of brittle trees and honeysuckle with something better.

Second round: Planted and mulched three sassafras and one bald cypress.

I also added a couple handfuls of worms to the barrel garden, and have started putting individual worms into flowerpots.

Third round: Planted three prairie plants (purple joe-pye weed, rattlesnake master, and one other) plus one red willow bush. This concludes the batch of tree and shrub seedlings I was working through.  All that remains of the native plants are the six pots of prairie grasses.

Raspberries and blackberries are blooming.  Wild strawberries have been blooming for a while.  :D
