how has your summer gone so far?
it's been kind of different for me.
i would really like to chat about why, but that will be a near-future post.
a normal summer break starts something like this:
clothes on the lines - check.
basketball camp for the over 6' crowd - check.
swim lessons - no more. (in the books as of last year)
summer camp - check.
mowing, and more mowing - check.
garden - check... err, kind of.
my flower garden is a disaster.
take-over of an ivy kind literally strangled out several of my perennials.
in my old age, i'm giving this up as "lesson learned".
our vegetable garden is mostly per the usual, except that my participation has been next to nill.
i went along to purchase seeds & plants as is the tradition, but i've done very little else.
post gardening rest...
although i had good intentions, the new strawberry patch was planted by the big guy alone.
i'm wondering about those new plants... i never really discussed the "proper way to plant strawberry starts" with him.
somehow i just don't have it in me to verify these facts.
so, i've been busy inside and my guys are doing all the gardening themselves.
*oh, hey... i did spread hair around the jalepeno plants, and well... that's a whole nother ball of wax.
