More gardening

As per the suggestion of the wise Claw, you will notice a new page on the sidebar called how does your garden grow. There I will be taking the picture updates and keeping a photoblog of the Anniversary Garden.

After advice from those who know, we purchased some lime, peat moss and horse manure. We spread it out in between rains, will let it soak into the ground a little bit and will continue to break up the soil. As the Claw wondered in a former life, WHO PLANTED ALL OF THOSE ROCK SEEDS? They did a good job! We have Beefsteak Rocks.

New Straw Hat- a must at only $5.99!

Mr. Sophanne and his new pitchfork- I don't know how much it was but I'm sure it was not the deal that the hat was.

The color of dirt (apologies to the color blind)

Prehistoric squirrels burried those rocks when they were still giant acorns. Forgotten and fossilized, those giant acorns exist now only to plague gardeners.

lovely hat! Nice pitchfork. Mr.
Sophane looks handy with it.

Just how DO those rocks grow, anyway?

We have a great crop of rocks each year. I need to improve our garden soil too. It's on the list!

What you need, although it may be a tad big for your garden: the Harley Rock Picker (sadly, no longer being manufactured).
