Yay -- things are growing!! This is how our veggie garden looked as of Sunday. The chard and kale that over-wintered are doing nicely and seemed to be spared from the scourge of those pesky white moths. However, I created a row cover to go over the tender new seedlings I planted. Last year it did not work to drape the cloth directly over the plants, so I used some short wire "fencing" (if you could even it call it that) cut to the right size as my frame from the row-cover cloth. An inexpensive solution and the plants seem happy being in their warm tent (but don't get me started about those even peskier slugs). I saved some space in the raised beds and in our two wine barrels to plant tomatoes and basil once it warms up a bit more.
Loving the constancy of the sun today. I think it was the first time I've worn a skirt all year -- a very twirly skirt at that. After work I thinned some of the weeds in front yard with house finches above in the Snowbell tree creating a royal ruckus. There is at least one nest of babies in the neighbor's eaves and the finchies (as I like to call them) stay in non-stop communication with their little ones. I've done a bit of journaling tonight and feel ready to settle in with book. G'night, Everyone.
