The raised veggie beds were merely a dream, last year.
This is what the perennial bed looks like, today!!!
The tomatoes became too big for their cages and brought them right down!
Even the grass in this year's picture looks better. Jeff re-seeded in the spring with a bluegrass mix that cost us a ton of money. We expect even greater results when the guy aerates the whole thing in September.
I guess you can tell by now that they closed the garden center! It was a great time and I really miss it. I am now back to the drudgery of job hunting. It's quite depressing, although I have gone on fascinating interviews!! I interviewed at the Morton Arboretum for an admin position, but the drive is an hour and a half, and I didn't get it anyways.
I also interviewed with Ball Seed company. You know them, the Wave Petunia people, the Purple Majesty Millet people??? Well, I got the position of breeder technician, which sounds alot more high class than it really is....turns out, it's just a little above minimum wage. And the drive is about 45 minutes. I turned it down.
I will keep looking, though. I won't take any more temp positions. It's too hard when they end...
