Friday Night in the Garden
There is nothing like unwinding on a Friday night in the garden. After a busy week there is no other place I'd rather be than in my own backyard.
For me it looks something like this... prepare a simple meal, turn on some music (loud enough to hear out back), pour myself a drink and then out into the garden I go. Tonight there was pesto pasta and salad for dinner, our local jazz station on the radio and a G&T with extra lemon.
I had picked up some sorrel,"lacianato" kale and "bright lights" swiss chard plants this week and was itching to get them in to the ground before the forecasted rains. I tucked some in pots and planters and amongst the perennials. I seeded some more greens, weeded and cleaned out the chicken coop.
The storm came earlier than expected but I was able to get the last few plants in.
There is still dirt under my fingernails and I can hear the rain watering my newly planted crops. The perfect way to start the weekend.
