I’ve shared on here before how much I love gardening. This past weekend One Cute Cowboy started in on one of my front flower beds. It was filled with deep-rooted grass that had completely taken over the bed. I really wish I had a picture of the before, to give you the full affect, because it was pretty bad. But he worked on it several days last week, getting it all dug up.
These pictures don’t do it justice to see just how deep he ended up digging. It looked so strange. Then he took the front-end loader and went out to the pasture and got fresh, new, untouched dirt!
Our nephew, Brycen came over and helped us put down the black mesh to keep grass from coming up again. We put down two layers, then started putting dirt back inside the beds.
OCC got it all leveled out and mixed in a good ratio of sandy-dirt with manure to make the perfect growing grounds for my flowers. Once we were done, I was able to start planting. I love buying and planting flowers. I got these at a nearby greenhouse in Hartley, TX.
They look a little puny now, but they’ll be gorgeous in a month or so. Petunias are One Cute Cowboys favorite so I always try to plant a bunch of those in my front bed and pots around the porch. Also, Petunias do good in our Oklahoma heat and fair well in the wind.
Have any of my followers started planting? What are your favorite things to grow?
