I’ve been gardening or more specifically, weeding, in between rain showers. I have weeds that appear to be on steroids. I don’t think the art of weeding is passed in the genes because I’m not seeing anyone lining up to take over this job. 🙂
But, the plants are coming to life, and I’m enjoying every little bit of color they are showcasing.
We may get a little more rain this week, but then we are in for sun and 60’s so if I don’t get more of those weeds out they will be up to my knees.
Today more plants are going to be potted up for the upcoming MG plant sale. We potted up over 400 last week. Now if we have good weather and lots of customers on the day of the sale, the proceeds will fund all our community gardening projects.
If you are planting seeds this spring and have seen a product called inoculant, but weren’t quite sure what it was all about, I found an interesting post that explains how to use it.
My seedlings are still doing well, and I’m hardening them off this week in anticipation of going into the ground. I’m also trying to propagate some lavender. I have a couple of plants but one is bigger and healthier so I took some cuttings this week, added some rooting hormone, potted them up and am hoping I will get a couple of additional plants.
This Saturday I’ll work the ‘Ask A Master Gardener’ table at the Lee Church Congregational 25th annual plant sale. This sale has continually shown the rest of us how to operate a plant sale with its great organization and their tremendous customer base. But, this will be their final year as they have run out of willing people to volunteer. This will be a real loss for area gardeners.
Have a great week. If you’re gardening may the sun shine on your plants and keep you warm while you pull those pesky weeds. 🙂
If you need to rest up after several hours in the garden, are looking for a good drama to watch and like history, Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, check out Bridge of Spies. It is a good one.
