The garden project is at an exciting stage right now. Aaron and I dug up 7 large holes in front of our condo building last weekend and today is the day we expect delivery of 2 trees and 5 bushes. I'm hoping I can treat my tree delivery personnel like movers and have them match each bush with its appropriate hole, sounds easy enough but I'm sure we'll run into a few snags, a lit'l performance anxiety may come into play
Delivery is scheduled between 12p and 5p, so I imagine it'll be me and a few neighbors leaning up against shovels waiting for the truck. My plan is to soak up some sun and pass the time with beer and burritos. It feels so good to be outside with the neighbors, great bonding with the folks we share floor and wall space with. This garden project has been in the works for sometime and has gone through rounds of debate amongst the condo dwellers but we've eventually reached an agreement. I am really happy.
In order to maintain these shrubs and bushes we've bought a soaker hose, essentially a flat hose that slowly leaks water into the ground. I'm told that with new plantings you really need to water the crud out of them, completely drench em. So we've bought a soaker hose, some edging and a few heaps of mulch to spread around. Hoping these trees get delivered closer to 12 rather than 5, my gawd. My beer burrito levels will be outta wack if I'm out there waiting too long.
