The Raspberries Got Planted

Riverton, Utah            High 69 Low 46

It has been a little chilly but the forecast is for somewhat warmer weather. Usually it has been safe to plant anything we want after Mother's Day.

Yesterday we bought some raspberry plants and a few tomato plants. Today we got the raspberries planted.

This afternoon I started putting down the weed barrier so we won't have to do so much weeding. The kind it got this time is plastic mesh with felt that lets water through but keeps the sun out so the weed can't grow.

The last time we put down plastic membrane which deteriorated in the sun and wouldn't let water through. The plastic membrane was a real mess to clean up. The kind we got this time is supposed to last at least 5 years.

We had planned on leaving with the fifth wheel after the garden was finished but have decided to wait until after Memorial Day because of the problems getting into Parks.

I had one of my hearing aids quit and sent it back to the people I got it from. They sent it back saying it worked but it still doesn't so I have an appointment Monday to see how my hearing is and see what they can do with the defective hearing aid. It's been kind of a pain to only have one ear to hear out of.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Raspberries ... YUM! I stopped in at a nursery up here in Brigham City. What a beautiful place to walk around. I bought a WAY too expense wind vane.
    Happy Mother's Day Cindy!!!! I'll call you later today ... I've got some news about my trip south.

  2. Amazing how much is affected by not being able to hear properly including your balance.
    Wishing Cindy a Happy Mothers Day.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
