What a difference a week makes! I’m getting my mojo back in the garden. I went a couple times this week and weeded. I kept running into these guys. I like the one in green boots.
I had wanted to get the inside of the garden in shape before I worked on the outside border. Today, I got it mulched and composted. I don’t know how the plants feel, but I feel much better.
Contributing to that are the little tomatoes coming on,
and the zinnias that started to blossom.
My garlic are drying in the kitchen
and I had kale and beet greens with dinner tonight.
The big job today was the outside border. Fellow gardener Joanne had offered me some of her zinnias, which she had not thinned yet. I took a couple dozen after weeding the border and planted them, gave them a good dose of water, and piled on some leaf compost. Then I threw down some wildflower seed. Things are looking up, especially with a rainy Fourth predicted. What’s bad for a national celebration is good for the garden.
