Hey everybody and thanks for stopping by today!
I went in to work this morning not knowing if it was going to be half a day or the whole day. Mentally, I was prepared to stay. The the child in me was crossing all my fingers and toes hoping it was only the half. The inner child got her wish as my coworker came in shortly after noon.
Once I left, I headed to the grocery to pick up a couple things and the post office. Then on to the feed store to see what kinds of plants I could get for the garden. I found Walla Walla onions, some Early Girl tomatoes and some leeks.
After a coffee and a brief respite, we headed out to the greenhouse and garden area. @silvertop had Gordimer rich topsoil for me and I began. I’ve planted some inside on the ground to the left and right sides of the greenhouse.
I container planted the tomatoes as you can see in the picture. I also did some seed starts of Silver Queen corn and Anaheim chilies. I’ve got 7+ days for germination. It’s been quite some time since I’ve gardened. In Colorado, we lived too high up-there was no growing season and here, I’ve been too busy. I decided that this year, I was going to make the time and start small. I’ll see how it goes and slowly expand until I have retired and can dedicate myself further.
We met Jan later than normal for a hike. It wasn’t to far into the hike that I realized what I had been ignoring, wasn’t going away. Gardening is awkward for me on the ground. I really can’t work on the ground well at all. Consequently, my back was on its way to being locked up. Going uphill was somewhat painful. Going downhill wasn’t much better. My rate of hiking was slower than normal. This wasn’t good. I persevered to get to the bench at Bear Hollow and stopped for @actifit-lamb’s photo shoot.
I’m thinking that she might like playing cards a wee bit too much!
She had just won the hand with a full house. If you look closely, you’ll notice the stack of gold coins she has.
I didn’t finish the hike.
That’s gonna be it for now. Tomorrow I’m hoping to try a little gardening-enough to keep using those muscles I didn’t know I had and not too much to over do. Take care all! 🥰👣🐑🤗
