Then I moved here. People said it was serious as Ken was planting more carrots (need thinning) and peas (need fencing) and I was moving out perennials. Some flowers did well in the woods of Wisconsin, others did not. I lost most of my Asiatic lilies, Pasque flowers, and clematis. But I had huge Joe Pye weed, and the iris did fine.
|soon there will berries to pick|
Then we began a vegetable business. I was the picker of small fruit and vegetables. Starting with strawberries in the spring, I picked and picked - usually every other day. I enjoyed it, BUT
my flower garden went to hell. Grass. Weeds. Poison ivy.
Last year I did a lot of physical therapy and my knee is better than it has been in years.
I want to reclaim the flower garden. And putting it here and in writing may just be the push I need to just keep at it. We will see.
