We are, sadly, replacing our old garage. It has to be done, it's falling down. I realized I needed to move some plants around the garage that would otherwise be lost.
It seemed like a good idea to move the rhubarb. After all, that is a plant I've had at my last 3 homes, and I got it from my grandmother's home.
That was the plan. Dig up the rhubarb. Move it to the "bed" by the lower deck.
Of course I forgot to get "before" pictures. As usual. But here is a shot from last year, looking down upon the empty bed by the deck. We dumped some topsoil on it last year, and planted some volunteer cleome, but that was as far as it got. Seemed like a good place to store the rhubarb.....
But what about the herbs growing by the garage? They had to move too.
And then there were the rocks here and there, waiting to be re-used....
This bed was completely and totally FREE. I shopped the yard! Transplanted the daylilies, lavender, oregano, rosemary, sage.....and the RHUBARB!
Oh, and the stones, too.
This gardening project gave me great joy. First of all, I was in the garden, always a joyful experience. Second of all, I shopped my own yard, resulting in a FREE garden. Third of all, I got a great workout!
I call that a Win-Win-Win. Wouldn't you?
Have a marvelous Monday!
