Gardening Week of May 20
Let's start a new week.
Hopefully things are slowing down for all of us.
This morning I finally mowed a patch about 24 x 10 where the seedlings of salvia transylvanica (Clary Sage) had grown to about 36 inches. I didn't want them to reseed (again) so mowed them down with the mower and then tilled the heck out of it. It worked up pretty nicely. Tomorrow I will plant another 4 rows of sweet corn.
I am still sowing little patches of annuals here and there. Unfortunately it has dried up so I need to remember to keep them watered until they come up. I was late sowing sweet peas but they came up very quickly.
Tomato plants have settled in now and look good.
Next project will be to re-mulch here and there where weeds are showing through.
I am looking forward to just having an hour or so of maintenance to do for a while..... water if need be, mulch, chop a weed or two.
Hope all your gardening is going well.
BTW, we have one Oriole here now and then. I think it is a new one. The blue buntings seemed to have moved on.
