So, dividing and broadcasting my 80 lbs of minerals wasn't too bad actually. I ended up getting 6 trash bags and just using a 4 cup measuring cup and just divvied it up by hand. Only took about 15 mins. When all was said and done, it turned out to be just a light layer all over the back yard. Took me much longer to till it in 3 inches in the veggie patch. Had to water it into the planters as there are bulbs and flowers underground and such.
Hit up Home Depot for some t-posts as I'm gonna make 2 arched trellises in the veggie patch with a big roll galvanized fencing and some zip ties. Thank you Youtube! Also got a few tomato cages for 3 bucks a piece for the bell peppers and a 3 cubic foot bag of potting mix for my container plants and the big galvanized steel planter the strawberries are going in.
My blueberry bush is getting leaves and I'm supposed to pick off the flowers this year for a big yield next year. I haven't done it yet because I need to research and make sure I do it properly, but I'm pretty excited that it is no longer a stick and has something growing on it.
Bought some slug and snail bait as I read it kills earwigs, before I saw @Calyxander article about traps. If the snail bait doesn't work then I'm definitely gonna make traps as Dahlias are a favorite of pincher bugs.
Almost forgot, gave my gardener a bit of shit about chopping up my bearded iris. lol Not too much though, the man cuts all my trees and does extra stuff for me above and beyond what I pay him for... He always tells me... I like the white ladies... Hahaha! Always flirting.
