In our somewhat silly take on the “Wordless Wednesday” theme — where one blogs pictures instead of words — and also, because it’s Tuesday and not Wednesday and “Wordless Tuesday” just doesn’t sound all that great — we’re offering up a few shots of our garden-ready yard and environs. Last weekend we completed the final round of clean-up. We finally mowed the yard (much to the dismay of our allergies), we tilled and put down new soil in most of the beds (the extra-long bed for beans remains, but that’s a separate project altogether), and we planted some lettuce/greens and radishes (but everything still looks like dirt now, so no need to record that for posterity). Our peas are looking quite lovely, in an among all that too. Here’s a few quick shots of how things look.
Weather-pending, this coming weekend will be all about transplanting tomatoes and peppers. The seedlings are now in their eighth week, so it’s high time they get into the ground. Since it looks like we’re in for a week of steady temps in the 60s and 70s, 80s by the weekend, the ground should be plenty good to receive the new plants. Oh, how nice it is to finally experience actual springtime!
