The mulch pile, that is!
My main birthday present this year was another truckload of mulch, which I ordered up today. I had pretty much scraped all there was from the last pile, and yet still have so much more to do!
Of course, as I was picking up a few stray fallen branches while the delivery guy got set to dump the load, my back sorta-kinda went out. No doubt registering it's horror at the sight before (or behind?) it. Since I had just gotten finished telling the guy that I would be responsible for moving this shredded mountain, I stood as straight as possible, with a silly, grimacing smile on my face, until he drove away. I waved him goodbye and I crab-walked my crippled self back into the house for a muscle relaxant. Now I'm doing the Frankenstein shuffle!
That didn't keep me from planting the strawberry plants I got earlier this morning, but did make it a half-assed job! I'm sure the darlings will forgive me. At least they won't rot away in a bowl of water like the ones I bought last year!
I promise there are 25 plants in there!
As for the rest of the garden, the onions are onioning,
the lettuces are leafing,
the cabbages...well... hmmm,
and the peas are peeing.
No! That didn't come out right!! Well, you all speak Lisa, don'tcha?
We are expecting more rain storms tomorrow and Sunday, but we are ready... I guess! We have had sporadic power outages over the last few days, but the generator has worked like a charm! Best purchase we ever made for the property! I will be doing the Quasimodo into school tomorrow and hope to get home before the skies open up!
