Slowly chipping away at our garden – hooray! The weather obliged us by raining overnight, so perhaps I should be outside weeding… but meh on that. My head is feeling more than a bit rough between the rain and the not rain and the pollen up and down and stabbing – I just want to flop out, especially after such a write-heavy week. 🙂
Having said that, we’ve managed a bit today, for which I’m most pleased. My husband tore down the nasty old shed that’s been taking up space:
While the husband did that, I checked on the strawberries, tomatoes, potatoes and rosemary. I also ogled my roses and spotted that the yellow one had bloomed; it’s always the first, if not by much. So, of course, I cut a few off to put in a vase! They’re very fragrant – almost too much so, so they do well on the far side of my desk where I can see them and just about smell them.
So then, what’s next for the garden? We’re going to see about getting a half-greenhouse to put where the shed was, though that’ll probably wait until we can get that slab of pavement more even. We’re going to do some more extensive weeding in the next few days, if not this exact second. And once we’re satisfied with the far corner (not pictured), we’re going to get a couple of bags of compost/soil and put a nice fruiting tree there. We have in mind to do a cherry – they grow well around here as far as I can tell, and I can go completely ridiculously nuts on cherries. *grins*
Otherwise, I’m going to keep my blogging short and sweet – my poor brain is still slightly fried from story output this week… though I’m hoping to build up to that kind of weekly output in the near future – hooray! After all, it’s a mental exercise, and like any exercise, overdoing it is bad. But working up to things? That’s good.
And now, puttering on I go.
