Garden hopes spring eternal [Jul. 29th, 2012|06:57 pm]
Wow,I've replanted the garden a lot of times. I don't want to even think about how much money we've sunk into it. But I have to say, the current raised bed arrangement looks awesome. Planted tons of herbs today- good workout for the lungs and the knees, which are both weak points at the moment. One of my old Italian neighbours wanted to buy our vespa and sports car, which I would love to sell. I was tempted by PG's absence to disappear them. PG is doing some work with the Australian army, and he is being paid to do biathlon training - like the next threat is going to be from Antarctica, maybe from Dr. No. Anyhow, he is frolicking in the snow, damn him.

Worked up an appetite. Made a pear cake, and I think I've already eaten half of it.

I am pragmatic about gardening in our climate. I plant it and water it as much as I can remember to. If it survives, great. If it doesn't I buy something different for the spot. It's a bit hit and miss, but if I invest little in the plants I don't grieve when they die.

And I often overeat when left to my own devices. :(
