Well this weekend is the one when we will be doing some major gardening, as the risk of frost should have passed by now. Having said that, typically we had to move a few things in tonight as there is a very slight risk!
The first thing I did in preparation was have a long phone chat today with the lovely Dee of Red Dirt Ramblings, who is my new gardening guru for OK and a recognised expert. She has kindly taken pity on my expat' status in an entirely new climate badly in need of help, on what the heck is good to grow and survives here. So I am now armed with a 2-page list of things to hunt up in our only local garden centre. Maybe I just dream't this, but I used to have 6 or more on my doorstep once upon a time far far away, and even had a loyalty card with one!
Then we will return home, map out our route and the Hubster will breakout the rota-tiller to do all the hard work, before planting commences. In the meantime I will tapping in 'U' thingies on my fence posts and threading fishing line to form a support grid for climbers.
I anticipate our yard work will continue in fits throughout the weekend, but it will all be worthwhile in a month from now :-)
