Garden is coming along nicely. Got the veggies I bought last weekend in the ground yesterday. Seeds have been going in pretty regularly as my time has allowed. The sunflowers are sprouting, for the most part. I’ve got a few areas of the ‘walls’ that do not seem to be growing, but I’m going to give them a few more days. If all else fails, I’ll just replant those spots—I’ve got markers where they should be, so it won’t take too long to get it corrected. Green beans are sprouting from seed on the other side of the yard and I’m hoping to see my birdhouse gourds coming up any day now, as well. Still need to get the rose Robert got me a few weeks ago in the ground, but that will probably end up happening this weekend. Today I got my soaker hoses placed, but I’ve got to see about finding a little bit longer connector hose for the small bed—the one I had planned to use is about four feet too short. Drat.

All in all, it’s been a nice spring for getting my hands dirty. I’m ready to have my stuff in the ground, though, so that I can get to maintaining (which doesn’t take as much time) and get back into my sewing room and make some stuff. I’m feeling kind of sad that I’ve not done any of that lately. All in good time, though. :)
