Have I got a Penchant to Putter!

The daffodils are up and so am I.

Boy, am I ready to garden! I was awake this morning at 4:30 and ready to go. It took enormous discipline to go back to sleep.  It's useless to garden exhausted. So now I'm on my second cup of coffee, I've just placed an order for more seeds. I've been so successful growing my first group of plants from seed under the lights that I've order a whole other set; this time annual flowers, nasturtiums and salvias and marigolds. I've also got a couple of heirloom tomatoes, beets and carrots coming too.

It's a beautiful sunny day and I've got a bunch of plans. First, I'm going to go for a run and then I'm going over to the quarry to fill my trunk with a bunch of river rocks to line out my beds and then I'm going to go haul over some pea gravel and lay that into my new path and top off my old ones and then I'm going to go back and haul over some mulch so I can lay down newspapers and mulch out the area near the fence to keep out the weeds and then I'm go to haul over some more bags of leaf gro and start adding organic materials to my home vegetable garden and my flower beds and then I'm going to seed my grassy areas with a mix of clover and grass seed and then I'm going to over to the community garden and pull some weeds and put some chips down on the paths and help lay in some chips in the communal areas. And then I'm going to rest. The Putterer

  1. I myself have quarry plans: there's one right down the street from me, and soon I'm hoping to have a driveway full of rocks for building a dry creek bed. (You're not in Falls Church, VA, by any chance, are you?)
