Mowing, planting, tilling oh my. Seems that when we get done one, we have to start all over again.
Each year that we have been here, I put in at least 2 new perennial gardens. I have rearranged, tweaked, and moved some plants from one place to another. All are doing well. They are starting to come in nicely, although I must admit, I don’t remember what seeds I planted where in some of them. I should have made a map like I do for the vegetable gardens.
Mowing is a job when you need a rest. Being that the tractor does the work, you can just sit there and listen to tunes while the grass is being cut. It can be quite relaxing. Even with all the gardens we have in, we still have over an acre to mow. Relaxing time is always appreciated.
The kittens are getting bigger, although still small for their age. Pyewacket is being a good mother. While keeping her ears open, she relaxes in the sun outside. She even ventured out to us in the garden the other day, but quickly went back to check on her babies. Maybe she heard something we didn’t. Puca still doesn’t know what to make of them. Kodie got to meet them yesterday, and even at just over a week old, they all hissed at him. It was a Kodak moment, without the camera. They don’t yet understand Kodie means them no harm. He just had to sniff them.
Planting is still not quite done. We have the green beans, and the last rows of corn to plant. I may plant some extras around here and there for fill ins in the flower gardens. I know not all the seeds I planted will grow.
Today, it is raining, and it will allow us getting some indoor work done. I shall bake some bread, make some yogurt cheese, and work on my dress for the Victorian Tea coming up in July.
