Gardening officially started!
It rained almost immediately after covering up the last potato too. Now it's the waiting game again, for the soil to dry up, so planting can resume.
Although a rainy, wet and somewhat gloomy day, I was rather productive.
Homemade yogurt was made, a pan of nuts roasted, laundry done (for what could fit on racks inside), bathroom sinks cleaned, 3 clutter piles cleaned up in the kitchen, and all the rain barrels are out now.
Plus, I baked 2 large pans of chickpea stuffed shells and some steamed broccoli for dinner. It was perfect timing too. Our oldest daughter showed up with a friend, and our next older daughter (vegetarian) texted me she was starving and would be home at 11:30pm. She also wanted something for her lunch the next day - reheated stuffed shells.
I'm hoping for many more productive days here. Rain or sun.
I realized in my absence of blogging, that I haven't taken many photos lately, and had this photo still on my camera . . .
