We got a shot of rain this AM which I didn't think amounted to much, until I was puttering around the gardens this evening and decided to give the rain barrel a knock. It seemed about 2/3 full. The water was warm and ran from the spigot wonderfully. I think that I 5-tripped it around the gardens with the watering can and all went well.
Smiles in my day:
- My migraine was a three hour tour today. It could have been worse.
- The green bean seeds that I planted to replace the ones that didn't come up are starting to shoot up out of the ground. I was so happy to see that!
- The garden is weeded.
- My neighbor gave me a Potentilla that she purchased to replace a plant that didn't die. I had never heard of a Potentilla, but it now has a cozy home in the butterfly garden. I moved one of the ground cherries to make room, but believe me, we're running a little spacious after the recent rip and flip of that bed. I was thankful to have a new addition.
- Sprinkling organic food throughout my beds, hoping that the scent makes Chuck (the resident chipmunk) or Chuck's friends stop eating my marigolds. I seriously don't know if the marigolds are going to make it, but my hope was that the powdered manure stink will turn the critters away.
Have a wonderful weekend!
