First, welcome to my new followers. I hope you are enjoying my blog, where posts are reality (the good and the bad), and photos are never staged.
Good Golly! We are so low on our stock of greens. I may have to buy some until my seeds are planted. Don't want to, but we need our greens.
Thursday night my "till man" was too tired to till. Shoot. Couldn't plant the potatoes and popcorn. Dang it. He was too tired to weed whack my raised beds. Couldn't plant my greens. Dang it.
However, I tended to the herb garden and worked outside for 3 early hours, starting at 7am. Daughter had a friend over, and all the kids slept in while I worked. Even Jesse was caught snoring.
I thinned my over grown lemon balm. Got my rosemary, basil, parsley and cilantro planted. I'm not replanting lavender. It is so tricky to start from seed and the stuff in stores is not the real deal.
My chives are already going to seed. Oh my. So are a few of my green onions, which had hoped for. My chives are looking much better this year, so I may make chive oil for cooking.
I planted the very last 4 flowers in the flower bed. Got out my solar garden light, flipped one rain barrel, and remembered to fill it with enough water to avoid the wind knocking it down.
I showered and had hoped to put bedding on the line, but it seriously looked like rain. I did, and it dried thankfully (even though we got sprinkles).
I filled the dehydrator with lemon balm, and my kitchen smelled so good. I'd have also made a tincture but I didn't have any vodka on hand. I'll just wait for the over flow of lemon balm later this summer and make it then I guess.
I decided to go to town for two garden hoses I very much needed. The boys cut my hose in half when they plowed over winter (never got to putting it away for winter - my bad). One hose was just a hot mess - end broken off. Hubby "MacGyvered" it, and it just kept causing me trouble.
