These are my tomatoes, peppers, Swiss Chard, and dill that I started 3 or 4 weeks ago. The light height setting is now about as high as it can go. I intended to transplant them into the raised bed this weekend, but I got a bee in my bonnet and started another project. Its not like I need to get into that cabinet where my glasses and medicines are. LOL
So I was thinking about it a few weeks ago and I decided I do not like my front yard. The thriving weeds from the heavy rains in Cali this year did not help. The house came with Sweet Pea bushes and I have never really liked them. I wanted hydrangeas in the front yard ever since I was a little girl. Back East we referred to them as snowballs, and I always said that if I ever had a house I would have them in my front yard. One of the sweet pea bushes was totally dead, so I said today was the day. I cut it up and dug it out. I am proud of myself, but I am going to be hurtin' for certain tomorrow. I also cleared a couple of flower beds, which took half a day. (I had been grieving so much for the past few months that I could not deal with my front yard.) I had to hustle green can space from my neighbors. I filled three cans, two of which were my awesome neighbors'.
I have bought several hydrangeas, including a couple of Strawberry Vanilla hydrangeas that I have wanted for several years since I first saw them in an issue of BHG. I will be putting them in soon. In addition, I am putting in a Rainbird sprinkler system and some sod. It will take me a few weeks but I think the end result will be spectacular.
I will be on a staycation for the first week of July. For the past several years we always went out of town where Liesl would not have to be scared of fireworks going off. I am really excited about working on my house, working on my classes and hopefully, doing some stitching and/or quilting during that week.
Have a happy week!
