I’m exhausted in a pleasant way. Put in my vegetable patch today. It’s not extravagant. Just a few squash and pepper plants and some lettuce (including some exotic kinds) to go with the tomato plants already there. I also planted some herbs–chives, mint, cilantro and parsley. Already have oregano and sage and rosemary. I forgot basil plants, the most important!
We had to “plow” up new ground for the garden. It was covered in thick grass and weeds and the ground was very hard. Thank goodness Rob decided to help me or I never would have gotten it spaded and weeded. But it looks nice now. There was a very large and scary bug that came out of the ground. Would have made a nice meal for the mockingbird but he was nowhere around.
Tomorrow I will plant the marigolds I bought (they were so cheap and really pretty).
Writing is not going so well. This new book hasn’t gelled yet! My characters are big sacks of hot air blabbing and blabbing in deep space because I have no description for pages and pages. But I’m hoping they’ll get better. One of the things I like about gardening is, i can just give my imagination free rein and ideas will bubble up.
