I can't wait until our Farmer's Market and Locals Only Market start up for the season. This year I'll be doing some "farming" in the backyard, too. I currently have quite a crop growing in my front window...parsleys, sage, rosemary, oregano, tomatoes and zucchini. I purchased a two-part galvanized laundry sink at the antique/flea market in Owensboro a few weeks ago and that will house my herb and lettuce gardens.
My three small things for today: (listed before the day actually started)
- Finish getting the sunporch ready for the season
- Move the galvanized "planter" from the dining room to the garden area
- Sow lettuce seeds
- Transplanted the sage, small tomato plants, Irish moss, Rabbit's foot fern, and sedum; moved them to the sunporch.
- Planted the pelletized seed I purchased from Cook's Garden. Soon (within 3 weeks, or so they say...) I'll have pots of lettuce looking like this:
So the galvanized planter is still residing in the dining room "warehouse", and although I spent some time sprucing the sunporch, it's far from ready for spring and summer enjoyment. Since I ended up with a fresh new mosaic, I've joined the Little Red House link party hosted by Mary. Visit & enjoy!
With the 10-day forecast looking mostly like warmth, storms, and clouds, I'll have plenty of time to finish painting and doing other inside things. Carpe diem.
