At Bear Creek Nursery in Stayton/Scio we bought 4 blueberry bushes,hebe, chocolate penstemon and assorted sedums. At the red barn we got a shitake mushroom kit.
I replaced our bell peppers plant and took the wall of waters off the tomatoes.
weeding is my new hobby every evening...grasses have taken over certain areas. Oh and I will be mowing for the next 3 days solid!
