After several days of rain (2" measured during one overnight period), we are finally seeing the sun this morning Yippee!
I found plenty to occupy my time indoors (imagine that) while waiting out this wet period. Now my outside list is so long I keep tripping over it, but I know I won't be able to actually get in the garden without giving it some time to dry out. (Days?) There are still many tasks (imagine that) I can work on around the yard (squish, squish, squish) and will get going on them today.
My chives have finally grown high enough to cut and process for my annual stash in the freezer.
The lawn is knee-high. (Not quite.) (But almost.)
We've never been able to get more than that first coat of tong oil on the new raised bed frames which are still spread out in our back parking area. And which need to be finished and put in place BEFORE I can plant in them this year. The frames are definitely on the list for another (possibly two?) coating today.
Our wrought iron deck furniture which we stored under a big pine tree all winter was hauled out more than a week ago. It was plastered with bird poop and needed a good scrubbing (or sandblasting). Now after several days of hard rain, much of the wild bird fertilizer has disappeared. I will wash it though, I promise.
I could truly go on and on with the list of fourteen (there are indeedy-do fourteen things listed) items on paper in front of me, but I'll bore you no longer.
Yep, plenty to do today out in the sunshine. So what am I doing sitting here?
