Spent the past week with an ear and throat infection. Not the best way to usher in spring. Got a phone call this morning from my friend Ms. M. inviting me to the East Valley Garden Club spring sale. It got me out of my house and in the mood to get something done.
At the sale I found a cucumber plant, strawberry plant, three small tomato plants, daisies and green onions. Oh and purple basil. On my way home, I stopped by the local nursey and purchased a geranium plant, blue salvia and sage. Of course this meant I needed to clean up the patio. Now I have a clean, swept patio with a nice place to sit and blog. Hermione is sitting at my feet and I am breathing for the first time all week.
Next Saturday, I will going to a meetup for gardening. It promises to talk about edible plants and the like. Found that I am a couple of weeks shy of getting lettuce started. This is at least a nice start to the patio garden. I had to start somewhere, right?
It’s been a rough week being sick but I hope the worse it over. I am still resting and have some fun stuff lined up in the next few weeks.
