Because Norma shamed me into inspired to start working in the garden yesterday (well, OK, the sunshine had a lot to do with it, too), I got out and started the huge task of weeding. Yes, I should have covered my garden beds with landscape fabric or newspaper or something last fall. Don’t remind me.
And best of all – honeybees! After seeing so few last year, I was pretty worried. But they were out in force yesterday, enjoying my borage flowers. I even saw a bumblebee, too. That’s actually one of the reasons I planted borage, was to attract bees for the garden. The addition to my gin and tonics was just a secondary reason. Really.
At least not all of the time was spent weeding. I also planted some arugula and cantaloupe in the raised beds. The main garden beds need to dry out a bit more after all of our rain before I can plant in them. Hopefully that will be soon!
