Today I woke up the veggie garden – removed the heavy straw winter mulch, hoed up the soil a bit, and added some worm compost. The garlic and onions look great; with spring arriving early I think I’ll plant peas, radishes, and lettuce this week. I need new tomato cages (mind are super wussy and fall over under the weight of ripe tomatoes), and perhaps a simple trellis to keep the zucchini off the soil. For now, it’s still mostly dirt.
I planted sunflower seeds in a couple sunny spots, and the peonies and hostas are just poking through the soil. In the flower beds, we have blooms from pansies, daffodils, and mystery blue star flowers that smell wonderful.
The hubby and I went on 3.5-mile training walks yesterday and today. Couldn’t ask for better weather! And after today’s walk we enjoyed hot dogs from Skooder’s cart at the marina. Yum!
It’s been a very nice weekend. Too bad I have to go back to work in the morning.
