Garden Tales 05.28.15

Planted the garden over Mother's Day weekend and it is definitely thriving. I added new compost to the raised beds and planted bought seedlings. The lettuce in the front of the bed came up from last year's seeds. The mint (in the buried pot) grows back every year and is in a pot to contain the creeping. The hosta all the way on the right was dug up to make room for some work in the backyard.
Here is the work that is being done to the backyard. Going up as I type. A few minor setbacks but it's moving along. Those poor guys chose a tough weather week to be digging fence holes by hand.
The main purpose of the fence it to keep Diego in and other critters, loose dogs...lots in our neighborhood, out. Besides dogs, there are plenty of small children and while he is super sweet with them, it never hurts to err on the side of caution. And I can't talk about the cutie without posting a pic of him now, can I?
ps. the dandelions are a problem in our backyard this year. I don't think it's ever been this bad. Any suggestions?
