While the fire is rolling, heating up water or food, my second task of the day after getting home from the shop is working in the garden. I am still gimpy and weeding is difficult on me, but I muster through it like a zombie stroke victim.
More than once I have heard “What on earth are you doing?” Followed by an uncomfortable giggle lobbed in my direction. Depending on who is doing the questioning, I will reply with a straight face a Dr Who quote, and zombie jest, or ramble incoherently about Cuthula. More times than not however, I peek up over the tops of my plants and demand they retrieve my boomstick, “I see deadites”. I am always greated with a laugh, and then they have the audacity to call me a dork. I don’t blame them, you crawl around on only one knee, half a butt in the air poking out above the vegetation and see how much you get snickered at. I have attempted weeding sitting down, it gets uncomfortable and I always end up back in the starting postion of the 100 meter dash.
I have managed to trellis my peas. Which has thrilled me to no end. Look what I did! (Feel free to acknowledge the previous dork statement)
When we first arrived, I purchased a small packet of locally raised spinach seed. My thinking is that since they were grown and harvested here that they will do better than my seed saved Kansas seeds. I planted both at the same time. And took some pictures to prove that my assumption was dead wrong.
(Yes I am lacking on the weed free front. See opening statement for my rebuttal)
I have already harvest a lot of the KS spinach, eaten them and processed some into noodles. I have yet to harvest any of the local spinach and it has already gone to bolt.
I am disappointed. I was looking to diversify my spinach stock as I have been seed saving this particular type for many a years.
Oh well. Maybe this will cheer us all up. Cucumber flowers!
