Mom has been reading up on what NOT to plant in our garden if we want the plants to go uneaten by those nasty woodchucks!
Everybody knows that my mom LOVES poppies and they just happen to be one of the plants on the list so she got 2 packages of annual poppy seeds and one package of Cleome seeds.
The annual poppies can be planted in early spring so this morning, that's just what we did. We planted them in the garden.
And mom was at Home Depot checking out what they had for plants and she found Garden Pinks, and Sage and Lavender. The woodchucks aren't supposed to like these plants either.
She couldn't resist the Rosemary, which isn't on the list but it's another pretty strong aromatic herb. They can't possibly like Rosemary, right? Rosemary is considered a tender perennial in our area of the country and she can't go outside until after the danger of frost is past so she will have to hang out with the houseplants until the end of May.
We are crossing paws and fingers and hoping that the woodchucks will leave our plants alone so we can watch them grow and flower.
The sun feels so nice today~
I think I will be spending most of the day outside. It's absolutely gorgeous here today!
