I have been very busy trying to cram a lot into a short few days. Spring has not been cooperative, too cold, then too hot and always too dry. We have been having a worrisome change in our climate and it isn't something I want to see. But that isn't the story. I spent the day in the nursery and the garden. I need to go back tomorrow, but I got everything that I bought today planted. So I turned this.....
I had the help of Howard & Grace.
Mark's idea of gardening.
I planted a few items in this small plot. I have garlic coming up, some lettuce showing itself, zucchini & chives.
Heirloom tomatoes & peppers, several different basil, two heirloom eggplant, some carrots & lemon cucumber.
The iris are blooming. I wish they went all season.
When we were finished for the evening I started the grill & made turkey wild rice & cranberry bratwurst accompanied by potato salad & baked beans. A nice early summer day. More ahead tomorrow.
Now we really need rain. Not only for my yard and gardens, but for the horse's pasture and hay. Please rain.
