… my garden grows quite nicely, thank you!

May 24th weekend being the traditional planting and gardening weekend in these parts, I took full advantage of the nice weather, and, hoping that all threat of frost has passed, I planted some unwanted wanderer perennials from my mom’s garden — peonies, poppies, chicken and hens, violets and ground cover — and also made a trip to the greenhouse for vegetable and herb starts. This year, what with a little baby and all, I didn’t manage to get around to growing anything from seed, but that’s okay. I got kohlrabi, broccoli, celery, eggplant, asparagus (oooh, hope it works!), leeks, tomatoes, 3 varieties of hot peppers for Rupert, horseradish, lavender, oregano, basil, chamomile, dill…. um, what else? I’m sure I’m forgetting something. Oh, yes, some onions which I have yet to put in.

Sigh. It’s so satisfying after all that digging to look at the neatly aligned, well-behaved little bursts of potential. Let’s hope I don’t go and neglect them like las year (when I could no longer bend over to weed due to my enormous pregnant belly).

Today was a rainy day, but tomorrow, perhaps I’ll get some pictures of all that perfectness. πŸ™‚

Happy hoping everyone!
