The first two bearded irises bloomed today. (It must have been the dew.)
Thanks to 'gardening week' my house is entirely trashed...why can't a clean house AND a sown garden EVER happen simultaneously? Please- nobody stop by unexpectedly M'kay?!?! Give me at least a 20 minute head's up to get the waterlogged Judah undies off the kitchen floor and the crumbs left from breakfast wiped off the dining table.
I put walkways in the garden this morning making it semi-labyrinth-esque which is fun. Tonight the Mister and his tractor are going to help me put sawdust down on them.
I planted the summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, (the first batch of) corn, swiss chard, and green beans (and made a trellis for them) so far today.
That list sounds impressive if you don't think about the fact that I hoped to have the WHOLE garden in by tomorrow- and I don't. Not even close. Beets? Lettuce? Spinach? Carrots? Garlic? POTATOES? Acorn squash? Better stop thinking about it.....
My husbands' boss (and his family) are coming to dinner on Sunday...not a good time for the house to be trashed. Saturday is going to be 'disaster clean up' day. fun.
I have looked in NO LESS THAN TEN stores for kale to plant and I can not find seeds anywhere. It is frustrating.
I hate that I didn't order plants/seeds from catalogs this year.
It is 90 degrees and I've been working in the garden all day so guess what we are doing tonight? BUYING pizza!
I have five loads of laundry to fold tonight during movie night.
I intended to crochet some edging around pillowcases for a(n already late) bridal shower gift during movie night- but laundry takes precedence (again).
I am sweating like a pig and going to head out to go splash in the hose like my children. Smart ones, they.
Have a happy weekend~
