Pruned My Rose Bushes Today
There’s something like eight thorns stuck in my hands. I have specific gardening shoes yet I somehow do not have gloves.
We bought a pear tree for the front yard today, as well. We now have blackberries, strawberries, figs, Meyer lemons and Concord grapes growing at our place, fruit-wise.
Also, there are three patches of plants that popped up in our yard over the last week that are identical. I have a feeling they’re lilies but does anyone have a good way to identify a plant without typing in “what is the twisty green thing in my yard” on Google?
TOILETS ON MY BRAIN
Since I’m great with child, we’re moving our wedding up to 8 WEEKS from now. And we’re totally DIYing it by having it in our backyard. The only thing we can’t DIY are toilet facilities, unless we provide our guests with chamber pots. I never thought I’d be thinking so much about the right price and location for a PortaJohn (or luxury porta-trailer!) in my yard.

Tomato seeds are going in today. Eric is working on cedar raised beds and herb boxes. I’m going to line our front walk with Thyme and Lavender. My Meyer Lemon tree is en route. Re-potting and feeding the Java and Blue Eucalyptus trees. ‘Tis the season!
