Continue trim job and plant Stella Dora's
Tuesday it rained so I went to the shop and worked on the Permagreen power spreader, because the plan is to go to Olin college on Friday and spray the crabgrass there and also to fertilize the soccer fields. The Permagreen Spreader is the key piece of equipment for that job. It needed to be tuned up, cleaned and have the transmission and oil changed.
Today, Wednesday, I went back to the property that is used by the President of Babson College, to continue with the weeding and trimming of the property. It was decided yesterday that we would plant Stella Dora day Lillie's in the back yard. There are 3 mulch beds surrounding very large "landscape rocks" where there are tulip's in the spring and then nothing for the rest of the year. Rob, showed up with the entire back of his pickup loaded with Stella Dora's. Guillerme and Wagner spent the next 2 1/2 hours digging holes and planting them. Hopefully there will still be time for some of them to bloom this year.
As I mentioned in the last post for some reason this year the Lillie's are vibrant in their color and it seems that all of them are close to 4 feet high. I took the pictures of these 2, that are in the perennial bed in the back of the property.
We still have not finished the entire property by the end of the day, but that is alright, because Rob, wants to send another crew there to mulch the Stella Dora beds and do a severe trim job on a large Crab Apple tree across the street.
