I finally planted out the chokecherry and gold currant bushes. These jobs would go a lot easier if it weren't so very humid again. I put them along the sides of the dog pen. It's the safest place from the lawnmower (other than IN the dog pen which they probably wouldn't survive).
I also rediscovered the garlic plants. The potato row sort of went mad in a sideways direction and enveloped them. These are the potatoes that haven't blighted so I'll forgive their wayward tendencies.
The zucchinis (courgettes) are coming along delightfully; fruiting strongly so far. And I've heard that the extra seedling I adopted out has grown very large and is thriving in it's city home.
Cucumbers and green beans are also setting young produce and the tomatoes in the polytunnel are looking like wild jungle creatures. That's my fault for putting so many in; I need a larger tunnel!
I've been reading D.E. Stevenson again. Comfort books.
My niece's wedding is just 5 weeks away. I really need to figure out what to give them but their gift registry items are so boring! The bridal shower was fun. The first I've gone to (elopements run in our family).
We went to see Despicable Me last night. Very funny and thoroughly enjoyable. Right up there with Monsters, Inc for original material.
