08:03 pm: Pulling weeds and picking stones
I spent nearly all of my time this weekend weeding the front and back yards, and I barely made a dent. On the bright side, I got my two empty vegetable beds ready for planting some winter cover crops. When I get the chance, I'm going to plant some winter rye and clover in them, and hopefully that will give the weeds some competition during the rainy season. Also, the peas and fenugreek are beginning to sprout, which is exciting.

I finally harvested my summer cabbage, though I haven't eaten it yet because I haven't had time. The potato vines are dying down, so I'll probably harvest them as soon as I get a chance. It looks like it's going to start raining by Friday, which means I should dig them up before that. I picked all the remaining green tomatoes from my tomato plant to make tomato jam...yet one more project that will have to wait until I get some spare time.

The window treatments that I ordered are supposed to be delivered Thursday morning. It will be nice to see them after waiting over a month.

you ARE made of dreams and bones!

For anyone who doesn't know the Garden Song, please enjoy John Denver and some creepy muppet plants. (I prefer Arlo Guthrie's version, but while he's very funny, he doesn't have any muppets.) Do you sing while you garden?

I've been wondering about the window treatments. Please post pics when they're up and you have a free moment?

Re: you ARE made of dreams and bones!

I prefer Arlo Guthrie myself. ^_^

Do you sing while you garden?

Only in my head. I don't need to subject my neighbors to random vocalizations.

Please post pics when they're up and you have a free moment?

The one over the door to the backyard will be installed on Thursday, so I can get pictures of that. The ones for the windows will have to wait until after my parents get here, because they can't be hung until the window trim is modified.

This reminds me that we planted potatoes this year and haven't harvested them yet. Mayyyybe we should do that before it really freezes.

I'm also looking forward to pictures of the window treatments.
