I'm going to try to plant a little something every day.
It may not be possible,
but I will try.
Yesterday I planted a few things at the town plot:
And just look at Piper, checking my pea placement:
She is such a stickler for even spacing.
Today I gardened at home;
expanding the fenced area of the terrace garden,
transplanting four butternut squash seedlings,
and putting in a block of sweet corn:
Can't you just taste that sweet corn?
I was determined to get the corn in before the rain began,
so I worked until I sort of fell over,
and finished just before the first drops fell.
Now we are expecting two days of rain.
If it's off and on, I may be able to do more planting.
If not, I'll at least do some prepping for related tasks,
because Wednesday I've got a new helper coming
to work with me on gates and fencing for a couple of hours.
But as soon as weather permits, I will be planting:
I'm done buying seeds for the year now, I think.
(I'm pretty sure.)
And as I say goodbye to the Dog Days of August
which came in May this year,
I'd like to share one bit of quite thrilling garden news.
Guess what this is:
Or maybe I should say,
guess where this is...
because this Red Kuri Squash is
the very first planted seed to sprout in the
the adventure continues.
