More Garden

Today, Patrick took Beatrix down to the Cathedral, so I spent some spiritual time of my own — working on the garden.

A couple of years back, I participated in a garden pilot program and got this gorgeous raised bed, but it was in pretty bad shape. So I dug everything out, raked through the soil with my hands, an snow it's ready to go. I still need to replant the sunchokes (somewhere else in the yard — anyone need sunchokes?), and now get some things for it. I have one pepper plant and one tomato, which is a start...



I also dug out my cocktail herb bed and put some nice organic soil in. I moved in some lemon balm from the back garden, and some Kentucky Colonel mint my friend Jennifer gave me. I hope to really get the cocktail bed active this year!



Also this morning, we dug out the old tents in storage and set them up. They may actually work for camping adventures this summer! Fingers crossed...
