So much to do in two days before the temps drop to the low 40’s and highs in the low 50’s. I knew there was a reason I didn’t move my plants outside yet!
Have you been following the comments from Linda and Helen Jane – about their invasive plants? It scares me – I never want to plant these by mistake!
Linda has something called creeping bellflower zombie weed and it has taken over her lovely perennial flower garden. It is invasive and nearly impossible to kill.
Helen Jane has something called Mexican Petunia or Ruellia simplex that was described as hardy and even though she lives in Texas, it can thrive in the heat!
This has been a public announcement for all the gardeners who read this!
Just did the chores – everybody is loving this nice day. Here’s one of the piles from cleaning the barn last Saturday. The chickens just love it!
This is my favorite chicken – I think she is so pretty!
Last night Reed and I sewed and he put his binding on followed by a lesson in a blind slip stitch.
Today was a lawn mowing day and then my new friends Ella and Dawson came out. We planted pumpkins and then we planted peas, sugar snap peas and radishes – still room for some zinnias. Such a funny little garden this year.
We are getting rain tonite – 100% – so that’s why I wanted to get those cool wet weather seeds planted.
I’m thinking about our reader friend, Jessica, who started chemo yesterday. Maybe she’ll leave a comment and tell us how it went.
I have a small quilt from Sew Charming on the longarm that will be on my list of things to do tomorrow afternoon. I’m also working on those charming 9 patches and cutting a small quilt that we originally made from madras plaids which led to the beginning of quilt kits. My mom was instrumental in packaging those kits. More about that when my project is finished.
I need to put my feet up – feels good to get work done outside, doesn’t it?
Ella loves the cats!
