Wednesday Yardening

Today is sunny and warm with a bit of breeze.

Round 1, I planted a buttonbush and a Carolina allspice along the edge of the savanna. 

EDIT 5/31/17: Round 2, we picked up sticks in the yard near the house.

Round 3, I planted a gingko tree in the savanna and watered the new seedlings.  This concludes the last shipment of plants, and the planned planting of trees and shrubs for this season.  If I see something on sale, I may grab it though.

Round 4, I mulched around the new seedlings and watered potted plants.

The first mulberries have turned black, but aren't all the way ripe yet.  They're still sour.

EDIT 5/31/17: Round 5, I trimmed grass around the contorta hazelnut, cypress, ginkgo, and an ash tree in the savanna.

As it is now dusk, I am done for the night.
