We had a beautiful weekend, with 70 degree days and sunshine. My long run didn’t pan out, but I made it into the garden.
I rooted out the oregano that spread like plague two years ago. (I’m sure I missed a bunch of it, but it smelled great while I was digging it up.) I pulled up all the dried tomato stalks, pepper plants, and sunflower trunks.
I planted a little spinach. (I couldn’t help myself, really I couldn’t. It was a compulsion.)
I harvested 5 onions left over from last year. They look delicious.
It all has me thinking about Sharon Astyk’s Independence Days Challenge. I learned so much from participating two years ago. I don’t plan to post on it every week, but I may sprinkle in an Independence Days post here and there, so humor me, okay?
One thought on “In the garden”
I love the new banner picture of the kids up top… all doing their own thing. It looks like the cover of some classic young persons’s book about a resourceful family of children who sail. 🙂
