Oh good intentions. I always have them.
I really did mean to plant way earlier than now. Really. I even have fabulous excuses to why I didn’t. Want to hear them? Of course you do!
- My mother always says you shouldn’t plant vegetables until after Good Friday. Remember when Good Friday was? It was late this year, April 22. I could have planted that weekend, but I was out of town.
- Two weeks after that, my dad and I built the sort-of raised bed I knew I would need since I don’t really have a yard. We didn’t buy enough soil to get it ready, so Dad filled it in the next weekend ,while I was away at MLA.
- The next weekend was taken up with family gatherings and lots of DVR watching. Face it, I’m a little lazy.
- Last weekend I went to see my best friend so I couldn’t plant then either.
Which brings us to this weekend. And me planting, in the sweltering Alabama heat. Seriously, y’all, it was HOT. I think the heat index was above 100.
BUT. I REMEMBERED TO TAKE PICTURES. This is huge. Momentous really. I took pictures and now I’m blogging about something that happened three days ago instead of three weeks ago. I should get a medal or something.
So the pictures!
Two different views.
Where was Caty during all my hard work? Well, after she attempted to escape into the great outdoors (a BIG no no), she napped. Being a cat is so exhausting.
Did you plant this year? What did you plant?
