Finally, back to gardening…

As I have mentioned, it has been raining for (let’s say) forty days and forty nights around here.  The neighbor is measuring lumber in cubits even as we speak.

But, today we had a break.  The sun came out.  The temperature was perfect…60s and 70s.  We gardened.

The garden is now completely planted.  The bulk of weeding is done (quite a feat after all this rain) and the mulching has begun.  I put down two layers of newspaper on part of the garden and covered it with mulch…but we need MORE mulch.

The edges of the newspaper have to appear to overlap with future mulchings...

That will have to wait until we have the Red truck back.  It is used for carrying heavy and dirty loads.  We will have it back sometime next week.

But the gardens continue to grow and flower.  It is my favorite time of the year.  So much beauty.
