Here I am marking the spots carefully for the new blueberry plants. We have 5 of them and spacing was an important task. I instinctively know where to place them and I lay on the spot. I'm pretty sure my parents would never be able to figure out where to plant them if I wasn't telling them what to do.
Here is one of the blueberries in the ground, all nice and tucked in.
Here is my big secret tip of the week. My mom thought she saw slug slime on her lettuce. She thinks the only good slug is a dead slug. She captures them by sinking little plastic champagne glasses in the dirt, then fills them with beer. Works like a charm. This wouldn't be Oregon if we didn't have slugs. I'm a good girl and I don't drink the beer.
When the days work is done, it's time for a well earned nap on the deck. I can still keep an eye on things if need be. I gotta rest up because this coming weekend is a BIG gardening weekend. All the rest of the veggies go in the ground.
