Oddly, one of the first things I did in the garden was make something smaller. There was a rock-ringed garden outside of the veggie garden full of balsam. It also made it next to impossible for my husband to drive the lawn tractor, especially with the trailer attached, around that side of the garden. So I pulled all the balsam, that was pretty much at the end of its life, and took away half the garden. I also found 2 peony bushes that were looking pretty sad for all the shade they had been receiving. Then I planted the rhubarb, chives, and golden oregano I brought from the old house. Last night I planted grass seed on the section that is no longer garden. Of course I dug up some bulbs, daffodils I think, while planting. And I probably will have bulbs coming up in the new grass, but oh well that's pretty too.
I also planted some lettuce seed. A couple heirloom varieties, Cimmaron and Red Deer's Tongue, from Pinetree Garden Seeds, and some seed I saved from my lettuce from the old house.
