It’s going to rain
It was starting to rain a little when I got it going today, but it hadn’t really got going yet so I could still get some stuff done in the yard.
So,I prepped a new hole to plant a tree in. I dug out a hole and put some mulched soil in it. I didn’t actually have to put the mulched soil in the hole as all the soil around here is good.
Replanted some elderberry bushes
I found out other day that two of the 4 blueberry plants I planted where not blueberries, but where elderberries so the plants would be too big for my blueberry area, so that meant I needed to transplant them to another area. I planted them here. There’s one in front to the left and one in back which is hard to see. They’ll be easier to see once they grow a bit.
Shopping and a pot of soup
I needed a break so I went into Guerneville to Safeway and did some shopping for things to eat. I picked up some vegetables for a pot of vegetable soup.
I needed some cabbage so I went over to my brothers. He gave me some cabbage and some leaks.
I cleaned the stuff up and put it all in this big pot and simmered it for a couple hours.
Seed potatoes to plant
My brother also gave me these potatoes to plant which I will do when I get a break in the rain.
Pruning blueberry plants
I puttered around the yard a bit in the light rain and pruned some of my blueberry plants but decided it was not a good time to do a lot of pruning. I should wait until I pick the berries first or wait until next year and prune the plants before they blossom.
That was my day.
Wow, that is quite the soup! I’d like to see it after it has boiled down. Yummy!
Lucky you. I see Blueberry and Elderberry pies and cobblers in the future.
