catching up

May 15, 2009 - Janet DelTurco
So where did all my good intentions about regular blogging go? I guess I was doing all that needed to be done instead of writing about it, and the days have run away from me. Things are looking pretty good in the garden now, although there is a fine crop of weeds. But that is nothing new. What is new is the swing that my grandaughter Brittany's husband Tom has built for me. My old metal and canvas one rusted and rotted respectively, and I took it out to be trashed last fall. On a warm day I love to sit outside with my cup of coffee, and just think about all I should be doing. Now I have a wooden swing cemented into place, with climbing roses behind it. A perfect spot, and all I had to do was to paint it. Thank you, Tom. I have planted all the flowers I grew from seed except the petunias which are coming along slowly. I grew Dolcissima for I think the fourth year, and I am confident they will be beautiful. In the vegetable garden the potatoes, peas, beets, onions, garlic, raspberries, broccoli are flourishing, and the tomatoes and peppers just in, along with a solitary artichoke given to me by friend Alice. Still to plant are the beans, cucumber and corn, and I hope to get that done this week. I spoke to two classes at St. Joseph School about plants this morning, and then went down to their Giving Garden and watched as the fifth and sixth graders planted cauliflower and tomatoes. Such a joy to see their enthusiasm. With community gardens a hot topic at this time, the school is leading the way.
