This weekend yielded the first pepper from the garden. We have several beautiful tomatoes going, unripe red raspberries, bountiful her garden, and okra plants going strong. I finally got around to filling one of the raised beds and planting some peas and beans. It will be a late crop, but oh well.
I added my new compost bin (left) – more on that later. To fill the raised beds though, I used compost from the old pile. I aimed for the mixture of 1/3 soil, 1/3 sand, and 1/3 compost. All the beautiful weather this weekend made it hard to get back to the grind.
Many Mondays I am left wishing it were still the weekend, however today is different. This Monday, today, is the last Monday of the school year. Which means I will be spending a lot more time doing the following activities in a mere 5 days…
Watching the zoo that is my house.
Playing in the new sand box.
Teaching has its perks! Happy rest of the week y’all!
