Kate helped plant some corn
Yesterday was a race against the rain and I won. I got part of the corn planted, basil and carrots. The rain only lasted a few minutes and was barely more than a sprinkling, so I could have gone back out, but I didn't. There was plenty to do inside and I didn't want my back to go on strike this morning so I decided to wait.
Today, I will try to get in the rest of the corn, radishes, beets, pumpkins, watermelon (which I don't even really like, but Kate bought the seeds for me) and cucumber seeds planted.
Last year I was so excited because we decided to put a little herb garden next to the house. I'm not sure if the drought played a part in the lack of success because I watered faithfully, but it definitely didn't get quite enough sun there. I found a list of veggies that supposedly will grow in part shade and I am going to try planting those in that spot.
I'm hoping to get everything planted by Friday afternoon.
