soil

The soil today was warm, wet, and soft. Light rain, mild temps. A good day to plant.

So I did. The artichoke, in the sunniest spot in the garden. The seedlings I've nurtured since March: eggplant, basil, and hot peppers. Instant garden.

Planted seeds: cilantro, marigold, sunflowers, marigolds, beans, carrots, cosmos, and zinnias.

Pulled weeds.

Yesterday I spread 3 bales of hay and 20 cu feet of pine chunks around the edges and between the rows. Today I planted.

Today I admired the passing daffodils, new narcissus and phlox, chickadee visit, and the song of the cardinal.
