Yet another obstacle to gardening
Tang in Catnip
Tang has claimed this catnip plant and - well - several square feet around it. While he was lounging there, I managed to finish adding compost to the other beds. So, I'm pretty much ready to plant as soon as I can count on frost free weather. Peas, lettuce, spinach and onions are already growing. The plan this year is for more flowers, fewer vegetables. Maybe just tomatoes, peppers, beans, cucumbers and squash. And dahlias, glads, marigolds, calendula, zinnia, poppies, nasturtiums and probably more I can't think of at the moment.
Jack-in-the-pulpits are blooming in their own discreet way. Fritellarias are still in bloom and Japanese primroses will be out in a day or two. Violets and veronica everywhere in the lawn! And the hummingbirds are back.
I have finally figured out how to add links to the sidebar. And I started with Living in Dryden where Simon, bless his heart, spares me the need to read the Ithaca Journal by summarizing any local news I might want to be aware of. He also writes about local government and community events. Thanks, Simon.
