It was a beautiful day yesterday, and amid watching 3 kids (they were on the playscape totally entertaining themselves for 3 hours!), I got a LOT done in the garden.
First, I amended the soil with compost and planted two rows of lettuce – some sweet Mesclun mix and another Green leaf, and a nice clump of Cilantro.
The strawberries are growing like crazy – that’s what’s covering the ground on that whole corner of the bed and flowing out into the path. See the 1 little orange Nasturtium bloom on the left?
So sad. My basil tree succumbed to winds this week and split and broke. I cut off some stems, but these are still alive, so I will leave them until I can have a mega-pesto making day. Pesto anyone? We’re not such big fans, so I’d be happy to share!
And here I planted 3 leeks and some parsley.
With the weather in the pleasant range, it’s so much nicer to be in the garden, even if I am pulling up grass and weeds!
