Honey-Do List

Fall is here which means it's time to work on that pesky garden honey-do list. These include:

  1. Lowering the pH of my garden from a whopping 8 to a more reasonable 5.5 to accommodate my blueberries (See
  2. Building a raised bed for my summer garden items e.g. bell peppers, tomatoes
  3. Transplant asparagus away from the blueberries, although the alkaline soil has them growing like weeds
  4. Transplanting forsythia and one butterfly bush as they are planted too close to the house
  5. Expanding garden bed under crape myrtle trees
  6. Consider planting a winter garden (yeah right!)
Tonight, the DH, kids and I got started transplanting the asparagus. Not going so well. We're doing a bang-up job on the roots so it will be a long shot if they survive.

Tomorrow it's off to Lowe's to purchase the necessary soil ammendments to achieve #1. Oy!
