|Our last frost date is usually around the end of May. Some years it is even into June. With the first frost possible sometime in September it makes a very short season. My wave petunias will be staying in the greenhouse on cold nights for a while. I want to get them planted!
I'll try to limit Patch to about an hour at a time on the green grass. There will be OOPS days when I leave him longer than that. And sometimes like tomorrow I'll skip the morning grass because I have co-op, and will turn him out in the evening instead.
Today I finished weeding in the strawberry row, also getting most of the weeds along one side of the grape row. I raked the garlic mulch out of the pathway and moved it to use for strawberry mulch. It looks good. Kinda shaggy but sure better than when I started. The soaker hoses were put in place and the strawberries got a drink. Some of the blossoms have opened. Three blueberry bushes are showing signs of life, so I have decided to try to rescue them, and will transplant them into another area where they will not get the hot afternoon sun. But first I have to get the weeds out of that area. It's always something!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
