You know, this is what I get for telling Kip that I “never” update on the weekends. Saturday blogging is becoming kind of a thing around here, huh? I couldn’t help it today — I spent the whole day doing something ineffably cool. Are you ready? I don’t know if I can share this without exploding; maybe I should take a breather.
Oh, screw it. I STARTED A GARDEN TODAY! A real, honest-to-goodness, things-in-the-dirt kind of garden. Right now it looks like this:
Please to be ignoring the ugly bench thing.
See that? It’s basil, rosemary, peppermint, and three kinds of tomatoes. Three kinds of tomatoes. Also, I prepared my ginormous yard’s soil to receive some grass seed on the morrow. (What? Dirt makes me kind of archaic.) Also, I started preparing the area that is going to be my flower bed.
I have such big plans, and I think they’re actually going to be carried out. I’m going to get more herbs, and maybe some peppers, and some cucumbers if I can talk my landlord into allowing a trellis, and some basket flowers to hang from our back porch ramp’s railing, and… oh, AND. The sky is the limit here my friends, and if those tomatoes die (as I am sort of desperately terrified they will), then I will PLANT NEW ONES. Oh, that’s right, I said it.
Excuse me. I need to go swoon amongst the herbs.
