prioritizing your tasks

Today--well yesterday really as it is 1:23 AM--I laid out an area in the front yard where I plan to make a new raised bed. I am going to use six of the large pavers I salvaged from my neighbor's yard set on edge for the walls. It is only 30" x 60" but eventually I plan for the entire front yard to be used for growing food. Potatoes are destined to be the first crop grown there.


keep it real today

Saturday I went to the a garden center and purchased two Sheppard's Hooks, a bag of cheap top soil, and a seed starter kit. I attached the Sheppard's Hooks to a pole that I intend to put out in the front yard so I can hang up two Fuchsias. The top soil is to fill in a hole where I took a Rose out--I put the Rose into a large pot and it is doing great. The seed starter kit is to get a head start on the squash and the beans. It has a tray, peat pellets, and a clear lid. It is like a little greenhouse.

Yesterday was extremely stormy with powerful gusting winds. The wind blew stuff down outside. Still I went out and potted three Primroses I bought the night before when I went to the store. They have them on a rack next to the main entrance with a Buy 2 Get 1 Free coupon--I can't resist. It has been cold and rainy for days now and I haven't been outside yet today. I should go out now but I'm not sure what I would do out there.
