Gardening and meme

Shocking I know, two posts in two days. Have you got up from the floor yet? No bruises I hope?

The weather has been fantastic today, summer! So we have worked the garden all day, and my parents (who lives in an apartment) where here too. I've cut all the outer hedges, except the top of the back one. It's supposed to be 180 cm high and that's a bit taller than I am... The little kitchen garden is all set with parsley, carrots, squash and tomatoes. We're just missing some chives, E loves to nibble that and the old plant didn't survive the winter. M and I also went to the garden center a got a blue vine that we planted by a sunny wall. So hopefully we'll get our own grapes in a few years. This is a special variety that is supposed to be hardy and survive cold winters. Not hat the winters have been all that cold recently, hardly below -10°C but you never know. And that's too cold for the usual vines anyway. Now we just need som thirsty bushes to plant by the vine to drink all the excess water in the ground just there. Salix, anyone?
The others did a lot of weeding, so parts of the garden look really nice now!
