Not for the squeamish
Yesterday was a hard gardening day. My knees are still aching this morning; but I got all 50 or so tomatoes fed and weeded, planted pole beans which will hopefully grow up the first batch of corn, hilled up the potatoes one more time, did a lot of other weeding, hand watered seedlings and the lightly watered in the fertilizer, and filled another large bucket with good organic potting soil and planted another eggplant. I'm hoping the heat of the buckets, plus sitting on the asphalt driveway will create enough of the heat that eggplants love to give me some decent eggplants this year. I have one more bucket to clean out this morning for the last eggplant.Other than that, hand watering the remaining seedlings on the front porch, will probably be it for today unless these knees stop complaining.
Instead, it will be a day to bake bread, and get to some of these paper piles, and later get the grill out and make some bacon cheeseburgers for dinner.
