I finally planted some (purchased) tomatoes and peppers. Red & Yellow Bell, Jalapeno, and tomatoes - grape (3 bushes!) Early Girl, and Roma. I'm a tad disappointed in my from scratch seedling project that failed for year #2, but at least I will know next year - don't even TRY to grow your own! I don't have a greenhouse or growing lights so I will just go spend the $6 for the plants instead of messing with little peat pellets. LOL.
I weeded both beds, and found out the hard way about stinging nettles. Ouch. My hand is still in a lot of pain and tingling. I guess my (pink!) leather gardening gloves are a necessary evil after all!! I am hoping to plant squash seeds with (or without) Aaron this afternoon, and I have a flat of pansies that need to go out front. I had a great time digging last night - very relaxing and I love weeding at a higher level! Much easier on the body, for sure.
This weekend and next are a flurry and a whirlwind. CBA graduation tonight, open houses, a birthday for my fantastic husband on the 6th, a visit from a college friend (and her dad, a former professor) on the 12th for a Pampered Chef party. Uh, wow! June will be half over before I know it! I'm excited for the teens in our youth group AND very sad to see them go. Thankfully some of them aren't going very far, so it will be nice to see them around.
I'm working feverishly on sewing some grad gifts for them, which I will be sure to post photos of, later in June. Which might be the next time you hear from me.
Probably not. I never have been good at keeping my mouth shut for long. Does the same apply to fingers?? We shall see!
Anything growing in YOUR garden? Any creative ideas for frugal, yet meaningful, graduation gifts? Is your May/June as crazy as all this???
