Sunday Yardening

Today is mild and partly cloudy.

Round One, I fed birds and watered plants.

Round Two, I cut three more water jugs into greenhouses.  Then I planted four wildflowers in the wildflower garden: New Jersey tea, short's aster, and a couple of others. 

EDIT 6/2/19: Round Three, I cut two more water jugs into greenhouses.  I planted two Indian grass and one Ohio spiderwort in the prairie garden.  Some of the grass there is already shoulder high, and I can see a black-eyed Susan from last year.  :D  Then I watered the new plants.

EDIT 6/2/19: Round Four, I cut another water jug into a greenhouse.  I planted a butterfly milkweed beside the barrel garden.  I planted a short's aster and another wildflower in the wildflower garden.

EDIT 6/2/19: Round Five, I trimmed weeds from around the septic garden and sprayed weed killer on the stumps.

EDIT 6/2/19: Round Six, I sprayed weed killer on poison ivy in the prairie garden.

EDIT 6/2/19: Round Seven, I trimmed around the edge of the Goddess garden to make it easier to see.  It is all full of different types of thyme -- silver, lemon, English, creeping, and mother-of-thyme off the top of my head.  As it is now dark, I am done for the night.
