As you may recall my big plans for the long week-end were to get my garden in. However, that didn’t happen. Friday was rainy, Saturday and Monday Mr.P worked all day and evening at the farm and Sunday we were away from the house for most of the day. I am very disappointed since I was looking forward to getting it in a week earlier this year. Today it is pouring outside and they are calling for rain for the next 3 days. So that is going to set me back a few more days too. At this rate I think I might have my garden in a week later than last year.
I have slowly being hardening off my seedlings. I hurt myself bringing everything up and down the stairs and bending down so often, but at least they are getting to spend some time outside. For the most part I think they are doing okay. My artichokes and parsley died and quite a few of my broccoli/cauliflowers are limp. Their leaves are starting to curl so I don’t think they will survive. The onions and leeks are so weak that I don't see how I can plant them in the garden. I also bought some mint last week it died a day later...lol I think I might have a bit of a black thumb this year. Let’s hope it’s not a sign of things to come in the garden.
Yesterday was such a beautiful day that I was tempted to try and get it in on my own. Nonetheless all the bending from doing laundry knocked me on my butt so I thought trying to dig and plant wasn’t going to be the smartest thing I had done in awhile...LOL Oh well it’s just a garden and when it gets in it gets in right. I must say I am glad that the surgery was at the beginning of the month, but maybe it would have been better done in June so I could have gotten the garden in first...LOL
The good thing about the rain is that I don’t feel guilty for not being able to go outside and do anything. The bad thing is that it means I should get my butt into gear and do a bit of cleaning. However, I think a good nap is in order instead JowHHoo
