Tuesday Yardening

Today is sunny and mild.  I started by planting a snowball bush and a pink dogwood in the forest garden, then covering and mulching around those. 

EDIT 5-22-18: I went back out and started clearing the section of fencerow to be replanted with privets.  Which was exhausting, and there's a chunk of poison ivy in there which I can't remove by hand but will have to hose with weed spray later.  >_<  And I can't simply delay planting, so I'll probably have to work around it and replant that part next spring.

EDIT 5-22-18: Well, we got 5 privets planted, which is half as many as I intended and took twice as long.  *headdesk*
