You will be graded.
If I am successful tomorrow:
I will mow the grass
gather and spread a truck load of manure
plant 30 perennials and a Black Mission fig
split about a cord of wood.
I'd rather be at work.
Oh, and I have to do laundry too. Yay!
8:35am, Friday -
Yeah, I've taken some pictures. I'm drinking coffee. It's 34 degrees.
Can't get enough Pineapple Salvia.
From the other side.
The knockouts are still blooming here and there.
I hope that thing eats aphids.
Thundercloud plum. The Eastern redbud is behind.
Agastache Coronado. I don't think it's really this pink. It does have more of a golden color in reality. I've got to plant these today.
Maybe another cup of coffee.
The coffee had to wait.
I was inspired by burgundy. (aubergine, actually, but let's just call it burgundy.)
Black & Blue keeps on going.
Now, coffee, then mowing.
I'm just now having my third cup of coffee. I got sidetracked. The yard is mowed.
I cleaned the driveway too.
I refilled the birdbath after a good scrubbing.
I potted the lone swiss chard from an entire pack of seeds into a pot with some violas. Of course it matches the door. What else would you expect?
Now I'm having a seat and drinking my coffee. Thanks Carla. For all the things you do.
I spent a few minutes watering after I mowed. I have a pretty good idea of what the yard will look like next year. I think. I'm still planning to wintersow about 50 containers. I have some seeds I collected and some from others. I'll wintersow my tomatoes. I've got some seeds from the clearance rack for Beefsteaks. I'm going to give growing one variety a shot.
Until then, I have frozen tomatoes. It's 57 degrees.
You better get busy..
That is quite a list. Hope you are able to accomplish most if not all of it. I make lists sometimes, and am lucky if one item gets crossed off, some times more get done. I try not to stress over the undones.
Have a nice day.
Piece of cake, you could do all that in your sleep! Saw some beautiful brugs blooming yesterday in Carrboro, got photos too!
I love the pineapple sage. It is one of my favorite plants. Love the smell of it!
Does not look like you need coffee.
Finish your list?
Heh. No. I didn't get the compost spread. But that can be saved for another day. I have two more days off this week. Rain Monday/Tuesday.
Tom, the more I see that pineapple sage, the more I like it. It really is a beautiful plant. Love that black and blue salvia too. Did you grow them from seeds or buy as a starter plant? I don't recall seeing them here but maybe it was because HD didn't have them..need to probably go to a "real" plant nursery.
