Haven't written anything 'cause there wasn't much to say. A friend and I are trying straw bale gardening and have other garden beds as well. It's fairly intense. No weeding with the bales, but the other beds take some work. And I've been trying to get the mulched areas in front of the house planted with flowers and herbs. A lot of weeding has to be done there so mornings when it's cool have taken away 'puter time. I can only be out there in the earlier hours. Once the sun comes up over the trees to the East I get too warm. Then there's the watering. That takes up quite a bit of time. Almost two hours. Getting these things done isn't too hard when D is here, but when she can't come over it takes me a good while. Not as young as I used to be and all that. We now have some gorgeous radishes, swiss chard, beets and carrots and green beans and melons coming along nicely. the tomatoes will take a while but there will be plenty of those. Hopefully the squash will behave and grow. I had to put more seeds in as the first batch was nibbled on by something and they weren't getting enough water. This morning it's only 50 out there so I'd better get a move on and get some weeding done. Y'all have a perfect day.
