I transplanted the Seven Sons and repotted the Kousa and Japanese Maple.
Picked up hostas at Lori N’s on the way to get trash at Peter’s. Met her exhuberant retriever and and “friend”. Transplanted all but one clump of hostas to the corner garden. Not sure of this, will wait and see. Planning to put the last clump in the back.
We loved the rhodies at Heritage! Took the tram to the carousel and walked back. I was missing my phone, had left it in the van, then left the keys in the van door.
We got to see the LaSalle and Duesenberg out for a spin.
A couple of days ago, we put out the big tropical Hibiscus and the tray of seedlings. I tried transplanting the nasturtiums.
The greens I planted from seed are growing very well.
Washed the poor truck this morning, and it has tree droppings all over it again. Ron washed the van in the afternoon.
Made potato salad, cole slaw and sauteed onions and peppers. Keeping busy. Nice messages from Lori and Eric.
Got a message from a fellow Cape Cod gardener around 3:30 or so, inviting us to bring home three little trees: Japanese maple, Seven Sons and a Kousa dogwood. Was pleased to get a tour of her gardens, which I’ve been hoping to do for a year. The trees are on the deck. Planning to plant the Seven Sons; she recommended waiting on the others until Fall.
My left hand has been hurting, I did something to reinjure it. Put the brace back on this morning.
Had a great time at the Robbins’ yesterday afternoon. Good company and savory homemade chili and Don’s special onion sauce.
Love Lori’s garden!
This family is everything the Cape used to be before the Chambers of Commerce ruined it: brilliant, artistic, a little eccentric, hard-working. Now it’s all about money and right-wing religious intolerance.
Made a nice recipe from the Service Center that they call “Stuffed Green Pepper Casserole”. They handed me a bag with all of the makings, including seasoning, except for hamburg, which they keep frozen. I substituted delicata squash from Misfits.
A baby rabbit found its way into the strawberry garden. An adult and another baby stood by it on the other side of the fence. The second baby huddled next to the adult while the first one tried to jump over the fence.
We were able to help it escape later on. Ron worked on reinforcing the fence for a good part of the afternoon.
I made crustless asparagus quiche and a horrible cornbread from a mix that was so bad that I tossed it.
Went to the Service Center around 11 and came back with bagels and fresh and frozen produce.
The timer I bought from Amazon doesn’t work. They’re allowing us to send it back even though the timeframe for returns is over. The timer in the front works great. Ron boxed up the other one and brought it to UPS.
I picked up herbs at Sprout Farm and had a brief visit with Phyllis yesterday.
Removed dead material and transplanted over the past couple of days. Cleaned out the herb and the little gardens.
Paid bills yesterday and a bit of troubleshooting with NEPS.
Made onion soup and instant chocolate coconut pudding. The onion soup was very good, will make it again.
