Today, we had some glorious, sunny, warm weather. It was the kind of day I might have spent in the garden. Alas, I had a long lunch with a friend in a restaurant I hadn’t been to for several years. We sat by a window, had a glass of wine each (Chardonnay and Malbec) and caught up. It was lovely.
Tomorrow evening, I’ll be having dinner with a professor from my undergraduate years. I never had a class with her or her husband, but they were active with the students in the department and have stayed in touch with many of us. So that will be a catching up as well as some intellectual stimulation, no doubt!
Of course I did get to the garden. I trimmed the soon to be rampant trumpet vine, pulled a very few weeds and got a feel for what would need to be done before planting.
I was extremely pleased to see the lettuces in the cold frame. They looked really good in spite of the fact I left the frame vented through the bitterest temperatures we had, mostly because I just never got back to close it completely.
I did manage to order all my seeds, plants and supplies for the garden this weekend. This included a variety of row covers and shelters against varmints to see which (if any) work the best. I may write about these after they arrive. I hope everyone has a lovely week!
