The soil under the fruit trees was tidied up (weeded), fertilized and mulched. I am still in sticker shock from our tax bill we just paid so wanted to go easy on buying any flowering perennial plants. You know .. if you just take a look around you can often find 'freebies' from plants that have self seeded. I have lots of foxglove and columbine. And I'm still finding violas that were originally planted about four years ago.
Our geraniums were overwintered and are perking up .. as well as mint and rosemary that is getting an 'attitude' adjustment by being on the shady front porch for a week before getting any full sun. The mint has been divided and now I have some potted ready to give away. It was given some new potting soil that retains moisture.
We had dinner al fresco using our new campfire cooker. Beenie weenies cooked in a covered dutch oven ... and coleslaw served up on metal camp plates .. easy peasy.
