- chicken-proof the fence – Garden staples (4 inches long and mean looking!) are my friend. Also a row of rocks, not really a wall, to fill in some gaps.
- expand the garden – toned down, just added a few feet on the south edge.
- rip out grass – in the expanded section of garden, still took an entire afternoon.
- move A-frame – I put tomato seedlings in here, also planted watermelons and some squash inside to give them an extra boost!
- transplant seedlings – all the squashes (4 winter, 1 summer, cukes, and watermelons), broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbages, tomatillos, a gypsy tomato, 4 kinds of herbs, and strawberries (just from my back yard to my garden)
- plant asparagus crowns – 10 of them, under the strawberries and herbs
- direct seed corn, beans (green and 2 kinds of dry), and soybeans
- move meat chicks out of small box and into larger space (fence off their side of the hallway first)
- fix bent door hinge so the hall door swings wide enough to actually clean coop
I did sew that skirt I was talking about. The library clean up went brilliantly! I actually feel like we can have patrons in there soon, and not be embarrassed. And eating like a grown up was a complete success. It helped that I bought myself scallops and fresh tuna (two things Neil doesn’t like) so I had something to look forward to cooking. I even ran the dishwasher once (it’s the little things)
- transplant grape vines, elderberry bush, strawberries
- create a new flower bed, plant the rose bush, 4 perennials, and many annuals I bought, also the gladioluses (gladioli?) from the basement (why no, this wasn’t on friday’s list)
- clean chicken coop- next weekend
- do Something with the last three meat birds from last year (or I should just give up and name them)
- Designing – um yeah… I spent the whole weekend in the garden. But since I have only Me to hold myself responsible- and I’m also the one who’ll have some late nights to catch up, I’m not letting anyone down.
