Back to normal

I think.  Anne's home.  All tests show that she is pretty healthy with the exception of the asthma which needs work.  And we have to lose weight. No problem...we have all these lovely veggies growing in the garden.


Last Sunday, we picked up our seedlings from Maria and planted out the ones that were ready.  Lots of tomatoes. 


Looking at the ones left to harden off, we realized that another garden box was needed.  We had originally thought about growing some in containers but why?  We have lawn left to dig up.  So that was my job last week and it rained.  I started but didn't get very far.  So today promises to be the start of a fine stretch and the rest of the seedlings will be planted snug in their beds. 


I also managed to get the runner bean poles up and ready for the first little leaves to poke through.  The seeds are in a bit late but this was our solution to dress up the bird feeder pole while we wait for the bears to hibernate.  I've planted more  lettuce around the outer edge. 


This week I've been eating lettuce, spinach and Swiss chard right from the garden.  Yum!

Glad to hear that things are returning to normal. It must have been hard for Anne being in the hospital on her birthday. Enjoy your gardening and your fresh produce. We're very late in getting in a veggie garden. At the rate we're going it might not even happen.

You're not too late on the runner beans. They like warm soil and I always plant them on the May long weekend! Good luck!

I'm right with you re veggies grown in your own garden, can't beat them.
I've been really excited this week looking at all the edibles that are coming on so well in my garden, hoping to do a post on it soon...so many posts, so little time!

I'm glad Anne is home and well. Keep munching your veggies!!

Such a lovely garden. The peonies in your post below are so beautiful!

Nice to hear that things are getting back to normal. Belated birthday wishes to Anne. =D

Somehow I don't think the back breaking labour was the way the doctor ordered you to lose weight. Sigh, but while you are at it do you want more plants ;p

Glad to hear about Anne & all the good things growing.

Oh now, see! I missed Wednesday's post and didn't know about Anne. Welcome home, Anne. I'm glad things are better and hope your asthma improves soon. They say that there are higher levels of allergens this year than in many years. Perhaps this is mucking up your lungs.

Stephanie--you amaze me with all of that work. It's not easy to dig up sod. I can't wait to see the garden in its glory.

Stephanie V said...

Thanks, everybody, for the good wishes.
The garden digging will resume today. Stay tuned.
