So much to do over the past week that the garden, I'm afraid, got short shrift. In between things a few chores got attended to, such as knocking down the favas and vetch, seeding the old brussels sprout bed with clover, and starting the process of finding a buyer for the hive at my friends' house.
I even forgot to water some seedlings at a critical junction, and now don't know if I'm going to get new kale any time soon.
What, you ask, could have kept me so busy that I'd neglect garden chores? Well, we had family visiting, one prom, one art show for two kids, six days of various kids' sports, culminating in a win at the state level, and for a bit we thought the youngest had chicken pox. Busy times. But lots of fun.
And yet, the garden keeps its promises. Though beset by brown spot and awash in aphids, I dare to hope that the Katy apricots will ripen instead of falling prey to disease. My mouth is pretty happy about that.
Maybe eventually we'll have quiet time to enjoy it.
