I know how Ellie feels when she waits for us to come home from work.
I hate waiting... I've been stuck in waiting mode for almost 2 weeks now. Stuck without my own computer, stuck from veggie planting (I'm waiting for Ellie's dad to finish the raised bed frames, but he has a good reason not to... I've got a heart-warming story to tell, but I'm waiting to upload the pictures so I can post it), and now the hardening off process of my squash and cucumber seedlings got slowed down by an unusual cold spell we are having in New England (it was only in the upper 40s/low 50s during the past two days - BRRRR!) so I had to take them back inside.
My back deck is literally filled with veggie seedlings, pots of caladiums bulbs waiting to sprout, annuals waiting to be potted up, and several hollyhocks and foxgloves I purchased from Bluestone which need to be planted (I'd show you a picture... but I can't upload them without a computer - I'm acutally posting this from work... shhhh... don't tell...).
A friend saw my back deck the the other day and said it looked like a mini plant market back there. Well at the rate I'm going, I might as well sell them since they may never get planted in my garden. Anyway, the plan this week was to do a little planting every day after work and then finish up this weekend. But cold rainy weather stopped me in my tracks. This weekend we've got family commitments and a party to go to. Boy has May been a busy month for us (I love all the invitations, but don't people realize I've got some gardening to do! ... just kinding of course!).
Hmmm.... I'm not feeling so well... maybe I'll call in sick from work tomorrow - it's supposed to be a lovely, sunny, warm day.
