    Apachie you can do it!
    Horse and chicken poop helps like MHF said, but I too have had my struggles.
    (It's hard to see from my photo but I missed spreading a few areas with chicken and some of the cauliflower is considerably smaller.. LOL!!)

    Drought, bad soil, one year we put the entire garden in and then it rained almost 24 inches in three days! I saw it coming on the forecast and thought free water... Drowned the whole thing. I've killed hundreds of dollars of plants... Poor dears. :P

    Here are my giant hostas. The one thing I have successfully not killed over the years. So far the only seeds I have had come up are tomatoes, of course. We do have lots of little green blueberries though!

    Lookin' good ladies!

    I think we are going to have strawberries coming out of our ears. Holy cow are they loaded. DD is way excited about that. In the veg garden beans are up, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, melons (watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew), cukes, zucchini, onions & corn. I can't wait for it to be ready! Yesterday we had rhubarb pie for DD's birthday. True farm girl, she asked for pie instead of cake. In my yard, the lily of the valley is full of flowers and smells heavenly. Hibiscus is up, can't wait for them, they are my hands down favorite.

    I have a crazy amount of honeysuckle blooming right now, and the smell is amazing. I have let them take over the chain link fence in the backyard - instant privacy fence. In another couple weeks the mimosas will start blooming. And the lilacs.

    Also thought I'd share my WIP - mulching! We had 10 cubic foot of mulch delivered on Saturday and I've been working hard to get it spread! image.jpg
