Yesterday I danced with blue sky, clouds, drizzle, sunshine, thunder, lightening, and more blue sky ... and repeat. I managed to get more tomatoes and basil into the earth and will make more room for the rest today. I made space for my chinese cabbage in between the buttercrunch lettuce that will be enjoyed with meals before the cabbage gets too large. I transplanted more sunflowers and calendula into the front yard garden. And I planted more lettuce seed, three kinds of mixes, in my shady garden. I harvested a couple quarts of strawberries, a handful of rhubarb (tip of the iceberg, that), and some motherwort before the first of the rains ever started.
Today I want to get the last of the new veggie beds prepped so I can get the rest of the tomatoes into the earth, along with my pepper plants, more basils, zucchini, cabbages, and the rest of my seedlings. I have more seeds to plant too. I'll have more strawberries to harvest and herbs as well, and I'll want to get at least 35 pounds of rhubarb harvested for my seasonal batch of rhubarb mead - but not today.
The blessing today is that original plans were shifted to lighten my load a bit, only to shift again, leaving me with a day on my little acre, without distractions (at least until The Boy comes home).
So now, in this lovely early morning, Jenny Wren sings to me a scolding song to finish my coffee and typing, and get to work in the gardens before the sun blazes me into the gardening pause.
