Gardening activities will be a bit light and laid-back today. After the requisite morning blueberry Dutch Baby and spin through the NYT mag crossword (spectacularly unsuccessful so far), and the weekly coffee roast, I plan to:
water and feed all of the pots and big garden
tie a few of the more straggly tomato plants
pick whatever I can find of squash, cukes, and tomatoes, as well as a sampling of sweet peppers and eggplant
That's it....also starting on my tomato talk for the SSE tomato tasting on Labor Day weekend, and my book proposal. The Red Sox play this afternoon, so I suspect I will have to peek in on that as well.
Good news - the lettuce, spinach, arugula, beets and chard that will constitute our fall garden are up, up and away! In a week or so I will do a transplant into plug flats - then into the newly dug rows. This will be our FIRST fall garden ever! Excited about the possibility of good salads, greens
A good day.....wishing for a few thunderstorms!
