We enjoyed two lovely warm days. (((sigh))) Sunday and Monday afternoons were shirt sleeve weather -- balmy air, nourishing sunshine. Sunday was windy, but Monday was calm.
I could wait no longer. I had to begin my attack on the backyard moonscape.
First, I had a handful of flower seed packets I bought for almost-free last fall at Dollar General. I put fresh potting soil into three long planters and put in nasturtiums, salvias, and zinnias.
Bermuda grass is a bear to dig through. First I wanted an L-shaped bed for herbs and some tomatoes. I had an old stinky tub of kitchen compost sitting outside. As Adam and I dug deep into the dark soil, I poured in some compost, held my nose, and thought of how rich the soil might be later for all my little plants I'm planning.
Tonight will freeze. So I brought the flower seeds indoors by my kitchen window.
