It's May 31. Who do I need to speak to about this weather? It's chilly out there this morning, my friends.
Thought I'd give you a garden update. Because I know how deeply you care. (Remember, on this blog, we pretend to care about my garden, just out of courtesy. It's awfully nice of you to go along with that.)
- green beans
- yellow beans
- fancy lettuce
- more ivy
- more moss
- various flowers in various pots and hanging baskets
- A houseplant that does well in the shade outside. Don't know it's name.
- hens and chicks (I'm really learning to love those things; they need no attention at all and happily spread wherever you ask them to.)
- blackberry bush
- the kittens
I have also trellised, hoed, dug, weeded, trimmed, lopped, bundled and collected rain water. And stared. I stare at dirt a lot at this time of year, willing seeds to sprout.
And I'm a little concerned that last night's storm - spectacular as it was - may have overwhelmed and drowned a few tender seeds that were only planted a few hours before it rolled in.
Still. A spectacular storm is not a bad trade-off for spinach.
