|Our Garden Help: The Orange Boys (Bruce took this pic)|
In the afternoon, Bruce and I took a drive to a nursery in a small town about an hour away and had a lovely time buying 3 bare root walnut trees, a bare root apricot tree, two potted olive trees and two blackberry bushes. On Saturday we planted the 3 walnut trees in the area outside the orchard garden. We'll see how they do. I also planted the two blackberry plants and tied up all to the blackberry canes to the guide wires. On Sunday we planted the apricot tree. I also corrected all my student journals plus all the other papers that had stacked up.
This afternoon we got the first of the olive trees in the ground.

Best of all, the baby blanket I've been working on for way too long was finally completed, cut from the loom and finished off. That was a great feeling. Bruce sent it off to daughter Chelsea today.
