So tired, tired of waiting, tired of waiting for youuuuuu!

I had not realized how long it's been since I blogged. I have a good reason, though, and I'll leave it at that.

The garden which looked a lot like this at first; just dirt with furrows, has sprouted in the last five days and looks fabulous because it doesn't need weeding, mainly because the weeds have not sprouted.

And no, those milkweed sprouts are not weeds. They live there. Tomatoes and milkweeds, corn and milkweeds, these things can co-exist. If you don't like it, don't look at my garden.

Corn, onions, dill, radishes and squash have all sprouted. The tomatoes and peppers went in as plants. Now I'm trying to  remember to water somewhat frequently, and when I water, not to get so busy that I forget to turn the hydrant off. Other times I just go stare at the things that have NOT sprouted, like the other dill location and the spring onions.

Two perennial plants have been stomped on my some large animal, probably my dog. Each of these locations are pretty good for bunnies to hide in. I never catch her at it and it IS her job to "guard the farm." Sigh. My comfrey and BC's hostas are taking a beating.

I now have three sewing machines, as a sister-in-law gifted me with a 1934 Singer treadle that does not currently work. I found some cool stuff in the drawers, though.

I don't get much done in the way of craft or sewing projects once warm weather and a garden has set in. I do still take photos of it, for real.

Here are some of BC's plants. We planted poppies four times or more, and these are the first ones to take. Now they are thriving.

Remind me to tell you about Russian sage and mullein x2 another time. My yard is such a fun place!
