After two weeks of raining, it finally stopped this weekend. Yesterday I ran by Paul’s house to pick up some tomatoes and cucumbers he had grown from seed. I dropped them off in the muddy garden and then went on my way.
Today it was dry and breezy, so I planted the tomatoes in the small Plot garden and a cucumber in the large garden, which I also weeded. The large garden still needs planting, but I’m hoping the volunteers and I can do that next weekend.
I worked mostly in my own plot, where the irises have blossomed beautifully.
I was able to plant the two kinds of pole beans I had in the bean enclosure and then sew it up with wire. I hope nothing can get in there. I would like some beans this year.
The roses are blossoming already. and their fragrance blows through the garden pleasantly.
I brought home arugula, kale and parsley for a pasta dinner and am about to get started on that. I also cut more lettuce and pulled some more radishes. I will be eating more salad this week!
The love-in-a-mist are full of their multi-colored flower buds. I can’t wait for them to bloom.
After a day and a half of sun, it’s clouding up again to rain some more. In honor of this weekend of partial sun, I’ll end with the galaxy of light Pauline’s light catcher throws on my wall in the afternoon.
