I am typing this while hiding my eyes while watching Olympic figure skating.
Mercy.The stress of watching plus listening to the announcers say, as the skater revs up to take flight into a quadruple jump-
“They haven’t been able to do this in practice… let’s hope.”
“This was a disastrous performance.”
So I am escaping from reality by thinking about what I tried on Sunday afternoon.
I planted tomato seeds. I called A&M’s extension office and asked about planting schedules in zone 9.
The nice gentleman I spoke to said that he plants his tomato seeds on Valentine’s Day and other vegetables or plants on March 1st.
So my husband planted the seeds on Valentine’s Day while I pruned my roses and fed them. Why? because my friend Aissa said that is what her mother recommends.
I am a gardening FOLLOWER. Just tell me what to do and when to do it. I look forward to finding and learning my own solutions some day.
I am amazed at what people do to create beautiful gardens.
My to do list is long.
* I still need to create my front fence line bed. I am not looking forward to that back breaking job.
* I would love to create some small patios and walk ways, but those projects may be too expensive.
* I want to build a long raised bed for a zinnia cutting garden. We’ll see.
Have a wonderful Wednesday and go see other Outdoor Wednesday posts.
