Who said I wouldn’t have time for gardening and jewelry making. I proved today that you just need one afternoon to get the garden ready to go. I took this afternoon off seeing as how I worked for 6 hours last Monday after already working 9 hours during the regular work day. I figured that this afternoon was almost a fair trade.
My plan was to photograph every bit of jewelry that still need to be photographed. Leave it to my camera batteries to put a stop to that. They went kaput and the back up batteries have gone missing. So, out into the garden I went. After three hours of tilling, raking, getting weeds out of the soil, labeling plants, digging holes, planting plants and water, I have my veggie garden ready to go.
Oh, but why stop there? I decided my little garden needed a walk way. I wanted to put one in it last year, but my dad and I were in a hurry when building the plot, that it got overlooked. Not this year! I gathered up what rocks I had (not many, mind you) and a board that was begging to be put into the garden, and into the ground they went.
I planted tomatoes, peppers and eggplant around the footpath and I’m quite pleased with my little 8’x8′ plot. I still have an entire corner for planting and I’ll have to put some thought into this. Can’t plant just anything and I’ll be darned if I let the squash woo me into planting that again (I lost that battle last year).
Now I’ll just be left to water, keep the bugs/blight away, and maintain my garden leaving plenty of time for crafting.
