Just look at all the grass with its seed heads blowing in the breeze! I never allow this to happen. But this year, I am so far behind in everything. I need to stay home one weekend and get caught up. Maybe this will be the weekend....
When I got home from work today and saw this, I decided I would work on it while the load of laundry I had thrown in the machine finished washing. It would only be half an hour.
While, as often happens, I decided to work longer, until the load finished drying, which was about another hour. So I dug for 1.5 hours and ended up with this:
Much better! I will add more top soil another day. At least those seed heads are gone and I don't have to worry about them falling all over and coming up next year.
Remember that old wheelbarrow I left sitting where I had dumped a load of plant debris a few weeks ago? Well, it's still in the exact same spot. A bunch of feverfew has volunteered in front of it. It looks as if I had planned it that way, don't you think?
I may just leave it here all summer and see what else pops up.
Our local strawberries are ready to eat. DH stopped and bought some today. I've been nibbling on them all evening.
I like them just like this -- hulled and washed off--no sugar, nothing on them at all. I just leave them on the kitchen counter (I like them at room temperature) and every time I walk by I pop one in my mouth. A true summer joy!
