... and the weeds go crazy! We desperately needed the rain. It poured like crazy here, and it has all soaked in, leaving the ground still looking a bit dry. Hopefully, a little more rain will be coming later in the week.
Believe it or not, this is a row of eggplant.
If you look verrrrrrry closely, you'll see four of them in this photo.
This is to represent the "before," and this ...
... is the "after." No -- not the eggplant row; these are cabbages -- they live next door to the eggplant. The eggplant with have its turn tomorrow if all goes well.
Here's the daily plan for May:
-- weed a row
-- hoe a row
-- plant a row
-- mulch a row
-- pick a row
Hopefully, by the end of the month, the garden will be all in, under control, and looking good. (A person can dream, can't they?)
That 5-step plan gets me out of the hot sun by mid-morning, leaving me time to quilt. Speaking of quilting, take a look at this:
A fellow hand-stitched these itty bitty pieces together to assemble a California King sized quilt. My job? To finish it for him. Quite a project, but fun so far. Of course, binding it will be a chore. I'll just pop a flick into the ol' machine and while away the the evening hours. If you see me on the street next week, don't be startled by the spinning eyeballs.
