Week In Review
The past few Sundays I haven't been very gung ho about getting out in the yard - sometimes when there are a million projects, it's hard just to pick one and feel like you're accomplishing anything. Sometimes there are projects I wouldn't mind tackling except that I need to do another one before I can do the one I want. You get the idea. After being lazy most of the morning, I got out in the yard around noon - unfortunately, it was supposed to be around 80 degrees today. I started clearing and mulching an area of the front yard that is going to become the new vegetable garden - it's large enough that I plan to refer to it as "the farm" in the future. The heat discouraged me a little, but after lunch, a few errands, and a potential future rain storm, I got back out there and cleared and mulched another large area. Before it got dark (at 5:30pm!) I started laying out the beds - where I'm planting and the paths - enough that I might plant a few things tomorrow afternoon.
I'm going to the flower show tomorrow to pick up my plants (and my awards?) and while I'm out there, I'm stopping at the feed store, hoping they have some garlic and onion sets, and maybe some broccoli - since caterpillars ate my last batch.
I plan to resume my regular posting schedule soon. The next post will be about the flower show, and after that will probably be another horticulture article. Stay tuned.
