We dropped the truck off last night, he followed on the Harley, so we both got a motorcycle ride last night. A tad windy, but we both very much needed "road therapy."
Planted basil, cilantro and more parsley seeds in the herb garden. Started 3 more medicinal herbs in small pots indoors - tulsi, gotu kola, and feverfew. I can't find my tarragon seeds, so I'll have to buy some next trip to town.
Planted my birthday Calla Lily in one flower garden. As you can see, I am getting more of my garden goodies out (mushrooms painted and made from metal bowls and logs), and more furniture (of what I can carry by myself). Hanging baskets are out, and just waiting for a trip to town to buy annuals. All of my mushrooms need repainted, but that will have to wait.
I'm officially back into the vegetable garden now as well. Hence the lack of posts and photos. I spent one entire day pulling out the plastic and mesh we used last year. Due to me getting sick in November, it was left out all winter. What a job that was! Thistle so high I had to rip the plastic out in pieces. Wasn't fun. I also weeded out any thistle coming up in the pea rows. Again, it's never fun. I keep forgetting how big the garden is. Until I'm out in it, ha ha!
Replanted some shell peas. Some didn't come up, but most did. Beets are up, potatoes look great, kale looks great, but the chard raised bed looks iffy for some reason. Possibly draining out the rain to quickly. I need to weed one row of radishes, and a bit of the potatoes, but they look pretty good this year.
We had to wait for the ground to dry up to till, so I hope we can get that accomplished tonight. Before the rain arrives. We are scaling back a bit this year. we are down to four living here now. Plants I started indoors will be planted next. We are still getting some cool nights yet. Something just tells me to hold off, although I have planted flower and herb seeds.
I still have to put my chicken run back in. For now they free range everywhere and are getting into my flower beds. I can't have that, so after I weed my sugar snap peas and replant if needed, I'll be putting it in myself. Hopefully.
I haven't been doing my intentional exercise. I am so worn out from outdoor work, and we haven't cleaned up one felled tree all the way yet either. Yeah.....messy house time of year just arrived.
