Welcome Annie's Granny, and thanks again for following my blog!
It has been absolutely fabulous outside, and which has made me not want to be inside to do much on the computer, though I have had time to check on other blogs. We've done plenty to the garden.
A lot has changed in this view in just a month! You can see the two bags of used coffee grounds waiting to be added to the compost pile in this picture. The nineteen-year old who lives with us works at the Starbucks across the street. This is just one of the perks. :)
I've sown another crop of radishes as well as another crop of lettuce.
First sowing of radish seedlings
Current spinach seedlings
My strawberry plants are putting off green growth like crazy!
We've turned the compost, and tried to combine the two piles, while we were hanging out with turtles, and searching for the one *for sure* male that we've got. Did not find him, though we have learned that the shy Bernice I showed the picture of on a previous post is actually Bernie or Bernard, whatever name fits... Our neighbor ladies told us they saw some mating action, and pointed out the "standing" culprit. Definitely not who we expected. Sure enough, I came home from my long night at the hospital and there she/he is, doing his business with our biggest female, Margaret. I'll spare you the picture I took. I saw my fifth and sixth delivery last night, so I've certainly gotten my dose of mother nature in the past few days! It's horrible to have to sleep so much DURING this weather. It has been 86 and 87 the past two days, and will be slightly "cooler" at 78 today. Couldn't ask for better weather. I better head to bed, so that I can enjoy some of it this afternoon! Both compost piles are hot, I've got the windows open. Gardening/weather is good :)
