well, I guess I can use the time productively by doing some stretches and gardening-stamina building exercises. The green is really going to explode now!
We could use some rain here... not that it's dry, but Tom hired chemlawn to do his grass again (so I can safely say that the more I dig up and plant with better stuff, the more money it saves him :-). Anyway, they spread dry fertilizer and pre-emergence crab grass preventer on Monday and our puppy likes to scoop up anything she can when she's outdoors, even gravel off the street when we walk. So, I don't dare have her in the yard until it rains and dissolves that stuff.
