Laying out the plants.
Tools for the job - the hatchet is for tree roots.
This is my soil. The spade goes through it like butter! I am spoiled.
These are pretty root bound, so I made four cuts to encourage the roots to grow out, not around.
And with a little digging (and maneuvering around tree roots) they are in!
And Molly the cat supervised.
Everything managed to survive the hot summer and the dry fall. There's an extra heavy crop of berries on the junipers!
