I always post on Monday, but I was busy. My church lady gardening friend asked me to help her bring some gardens back to life at a summer chapel near us. First, we shopped in my yard to get the plants we wanted as there was no budget.
We loaded up her car and my Yukon and headed over to redo a long driveway bed and a wonderful rock wall garden. Next time, we have to attack the back side of the rock wall garden and cut back the shrubs there and replant buckets of hosta that we dug up.
We have been getting rain about every other day, the grass grows at mock speed and the weeds are running rampant. The veggies and fruits are having a challenging time. They are growing but they are getting no sun (it’s shining today-yeah). The majority of the tomatoes have no blossoms.
So, when it rains, I quilt. My project right now is a king-sized quilt for my daughter’s wedding anniversary this year so I guess it is good I’m getting some rainy days.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m directionally challenged and always have been. So, I received an email about weeds at one of my plots that I tend at Joe B. Parks Riverwalk Garden downtown. After a couple of exchanges, it was determined that I’ve been working in the wrong plot. What can I say except I hope the other tender enjoyed my assistance. Now, I need to get back down there and weed where I’m suppose to, and I’m guessing I’ll be there a while.
Last weekend we enjoyed a couple of brewery visits – good beer and good food. This coming holiday weekend we’ll stay closer to home. Fourth of July means one thing when you live in NH – tourists and lots of them. We enjoy their spending money, but it also means you have to stay off major interstates at busy times and avoid tourist attractions. Good time to get out the smoker and enjoy some good beer and good food at home.
Gotta go – plots needs weeding, grass needs mowing, weeds at home need pulling, raspberries need picking. 🙂 Here’s hoping you are having a good Tuesday.
