Spring is well on the way. There have been some very hot days; it does not bode well for summer which is looking like it will be excruciatingly hot. I am not a big fan of the heat. I mope and wilt in the corner, like a pathetic wall flower that has someone has forgotten to water. It is not a pretty sight.
There are some garden tasks that have to be done before the heat sets in, some of which should have been completed by now. I have been a little lax this year, with real life and health issues being a real pain in the butt… literally (well, the hip at least.) As you will know, dear Reader, I did manage to get the lemon tree in this year (Garden Therapy). It is now in the front yard. So far, the lemon tree is surviving the buffeting from the winds that decided to pick up after we had planted the new lemon tree. I did create a windbreak, to give it the best chance of survival.
It is amazing just how quickly we can get through the carrots we have been growing. There is still half a bed of good sized ones which will last some time. However, I should have sown some more seeds a month or so ago; they do take a few months to reach a decent size. Wednesday I braved those winds and managed to get some carrot and parsley seeds sown.
If only my writing could be so ordered and easy to finish up!
